Delicious Irony...

Cardiff Bay, once an expanse of tidal mud flats, was recently redeveloped at a cost of billions cos' nature wasn't considered good for business. Instead of being home to wading birds, the Bay's new residents are thousands of rich people who flocked to the area hoping to spend their time sipping cocktails on their balconies whilst the sun set over the tidal barrage. It now seems however that nature is getting its revenge in the form of thousands of midges that are plaguing the area. Residents, who now have to lock themselves in their luxurious flats at dusk to avoid the swarms of midges, are now threatening to take legal action against the harbour authorities for their failure to understand mother nature. Gnats that then.
