Does someone have some really good negatives I wonder?

After lots of appeals, court actions, sponsored runs, jumble sales, grafitti saying 'fuck npower', Npower have now said they don't need to fill the lakes (formerly gravel pits, formerly somewhere from which gravel had yet to be dug) for now, after all. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/oxfordshire/7250934.stm
Whilst they figures as part of our running route and are quite bucolic, I was rather of the opinion that
(a) it was their damn land, bought with the intention of filling it in
(b) if they were stopped from using them, this would be a clear message to keep any site you wanted to do anything to looking as ugly as possible until you wanted it
(c) without the good burghers of Radley wiring themselves with explosives, and pulling the cords whilst hugging the CEO of RWE Npower they were unlikely to get very far (don't you realise that the bar has been raised for all of us, people? You don't think Gerry Adams gave up just because the New Yorkers and Bostonians realised that bankrolling terrorists wasn't such a hot idea, did you?).

Also, I shall believe Didcot A shutting in 2015 when I see it.
