The millennium dome is situated in Greenwich, London, UK and was commissioned by the Conservative government in the mid-90's and, despite public opposition and financial problems, the project was completed by the New Labour government. But has anybody ever wondered why the project was completed and why the site has been maintained, despite its commercial failure?

The answer - it is the cover of a colossal underground nuclear bunker designed to house the government, heads of state and military elite in the event of a nuclear or biological strike on the capital. The complex of underground rooms includes stored provisions to allow the government and elite to maintain control of the country in the event of such an attack.

This is not a joke. Nor is it something made up by some paranoid conspiracy theorist trying to find fault in everything the government says and does - this was told to me by the son-in-law of a prominent member of the labour government who has himself been there and seen the complex.
