Devastated construction leaves UK brick mountain

Britain awash with spanking new bricks

Britain’s devastated brick industry is sitting on a stockpile of 1.2 billion bricks, enough to build more than 133,000 three-bedroom properties, industry insiders estimate that only 50,000 new homes will be started in 2009 and it could take more than 2 years to clear the brick mountain after which production will go to eastern europe.

    Eastern Europe is also devastated. Remember that these bricks can be exported once Sterling is worth less than the paper its printed on.
