9/11 Girder Given To UK For Memorial Found Rusting In Farmyard

A girder that was part of one of the Twin Towers that collapsed on 9/11 has been found rusting in a farmyard in Cambridgeshire.

The 30ft piece of steel was donated to the UK in 2011 for a memorial sculpture erected in London's Battersea Park to commemorate the 67 Britons that died in the New York attacks.

The sculpture was taken down shortly after the anniversary; however an investigation by The Sun newspaper has located the girder rusting in a car park in a farmyard. The girder has subsequently been moved to a North London Tube depot.

Peter Rosengard, the founder of the 9/11 London Project, which raised more than £250,000 to have the girder shipped to Britain, has described the situation an "an insult to those who died".

London Mayor Boris Johnson, standing next to the sculpture in 2011

Lord Alan West of Spithead was equally scathing: "It's an absolute disgrace. I understand Boris is saying 'Why don't we look at Olympic Park?' I think that's fine but in my personal opinion I think it needs to be more in the City. I think it would be appropriate in the City because that's where there is the main link with it. But it is better than being left in a bloody barn."

Reported by The Sun, Patricia Bingley, whose son Kevin died in the attacks, said: "It's sad no one seems to want it anywhere. It should be put up in central London where everyone can see it."

London mayor Boris Johnson said: "We backed the 9/11 project when the sculpture first came to Battersea, but finding a permanent home for it has proved incredibly difficult, whether it be opposition from Boroughs or bureaucrats. Clearly this can’t continue. As a result I've asked my team to find a permanent home for the sculpture on the Olympic Park.

"The park was home to a Games based on tolerance, harmony and respect, and will soon be home to a massive multi-dimensional and vibrant community - the perfect riposte to those who sought to divide the world on 9/11."

No what's an insult to the ppl who died is the fact that most still buy the bullshit 9/11, cave man, story and Osama's subsequent killing with no proof of life or his death.

Watch me get ticked down and groaned by the sheep.

9/11 was an inside job. The terrorists were inside planes, the planes went inside buildings, the buildings were inside a city, the city was inside a state, and the state was inside a country.

Clearly a conspiracy. Wake up, people!

Best place for it. The thing is a damn monstrosity. I can think of far better ways to honor those killed, a large piece of rusted metal is not one of them.
