More problems for LHC

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7893689.stm

All of the £5bn spent on the LHC may go down the drain as the FermiLab reports its intention to discover God’s particle first, following delay to fire-up LHC in mid-summer this year.
Everything was put on halt two weeks after initial warm up runs due to this:
Damaged magnet
Tevatron (FermiLab) has up to 96% chance of finding Higg’s boson first, in which case those behind £5bn spend at CERN may get into trouble. We hope that European mission comes on top despite all recent drawbacks.

Although, to me it all looks suspicious! A forgotten spanner between electrical connections? Helium leaks? Maybe, just maybe certain moles are responsible for it??!! Let’s wait and see if FermiLab accelerator will
experience “some” problems of its own.
