In the UK it would be discussed for 10years before going through the planning stage for another 5 years and then takeanother 5 years to build and estimate cost of £500 million and when eventuallycompleted would have cost £2 billion. We use to be the greatest in the worldfor construction projects but now rate equal to 3rd word countries due to thepeople we have in power who haven't a clue.

如果是英国的话,可能需要讨论十年,然后再计划5年,再花5年建造,预计成本是5亿英镑,而完成时却花费了20亿。我们以前在建筑工程领域是世界上最棒的国家,但是现在这方面变成了第三世界国家的水平,都是因为我们所选举的领导人都搞不清楚状况。
