image for Bankers fear Battersea Power Station is sinking
About to sink into the Thames?

London - A bloody great big hole has appeared in the Battersea business plan sinking fund.

For decades cracks in the Power Station's ownership documents had been dismissed as investor paranoia.

Now work on legal papers for the proposed Thames Super Sewer has uncovered giant craters that threaten to scupper an already highly dubious, jinxed project.

"Battersea Power Station will go down like the Titanic," anti-Sewer protesters claimed today citing a new twist in the 'fracking' debate.

This reckons that digging deep beneath the surface will have the same explosive consequences as the current shale gas furor in Blackppool.

Yesterday a 1.5 magnitude tremor off the Fylde Coast saw the immediate suspension of shale gas drilling (known as 'fracking') in case such exploration causes quakes.

Nearby Blackpool Power and Amusement (sic) Park is said to be at danger of toppling as freehold sinking fund panic spreads to the North West.

A spokesperson for London Mayor Boris Johnson denied 'the same old Nazi Tories' are behind either scam.
