| The London Eye - alias the Millennium Wheel
- truly marks the end of one powerful era, and the start of a new one.
Undoubtedly there will be more twists and turns to come, in the Third Millennium,
than even those seen in the recent past. On that thought, our half-hour
ride on the biggest and most innovative Ferris (or "Observation") Wheel
in the World, also comes gently towards the ground, culminating with a
dramatic view of the former County Hall and the throng below. County Hall
might be seen as the launch pad, (with a long and contentious countdown!)
for London's first Mayor, Ken Livingstone.
