A Bridge Too Far?

Plans are afoot to erect an Anish Kapoor designed bridge in Hartlepool because Gateshead has its Eye, London has its Millenium Bridge and money doesn't spend itself. Perhaps Anthony Gormley was fresh out of ideas if he was asked.
It is to be called the Wormhole. Unfortunately, with Peter Mandelson as a famous former MP, local wags are bound to rename it something else ending in hole.

Old Geordie joke - They used to build warships in Newcastle: well they wouldn't be making them for the Germans...

Considering that they already call the Angel of the North... the Gateshead Flasher... I should imagine that it will be open season on Mandelson.
