Apparently the dome was planned as a temporary building with a one year lifespan.
Typical New Labour bollix, all show and no substance. Like the Olympic Stadium, we paid a private company a small fortune to keep it open.
1995: A committee of MPs - including the current Tory leader, William Hague - approved the building of the dome.
January 1997: The Conservative government's deputy prime minister, Michael Heseltine, pleaded with Tony Blair to back the Millennium Dome project. At first Mr Blair refuses to give his approval - then relents.#
