What to do with the Walkie Scorchy Hotspot

13 September 2013 | Updated 01 January 1970

Since the report that the building at 20 Fenchurch Street also known as the Walkie Talkie – and now, the Walkie Scorchy – pundits have been asking what to do with the Hotspot. ThisWeekinFM has come up with some idea – but we would love you to come forward with your own suggestions or comments.

Use the mechanism below to tell us what you think:

ThisWeekinFM says that the sun shield already erected should be converted to allow the beaming of live football  matches – ideal for the Qatar tournament as the residual heat will help make the atmosphere more realistic.

Perhaps we could hold a top level inquiry as to how the Hotpot effect was predicted (see Opinion) in 2012 and how the architect (see last week’s Spotlight feature) had previous form.

Another idea is to use the ‘Death Rays’ to send signals between the Walkie Talkie & The Shard

And finally – we think that the valuable real estate currently being affected by the Rays should be sold on to the David Dickinson sun tan parlour and toasted marshmallow emporium.

All serious or facetious Comment considered.
