Abstract

This paper discusses two projects associated with the Millennium celebrations in London: the regeneration of Greenwich Peninsula, and the building of the Millennium Dome. The paper examines the Labour Government’s appropriation of these interrelated projects, which started as a Conservative Party’s proposal. It is argued that Labour attempted to redefine them into a narrative of national renewal by employing a discourse of inclusiveness, consensus, and togetherness that entailed ignoring, even erasing, the complex history of the site
