STAND UP FOR A NEW LIVERPOOL, THEY SAY.
This is the city that knocked down the Cavern Club and then called itself Beatles City, and before the ink is dry on Liverpool's World Heritage Inscription they were building over our best asset, the World Heritage Site.
We the people of Liverpool own the right to proclaim we have a World Heritage Site.
A little more educated debate would be of benefit to all, one sided journalism, is not the way forward.
NOT ONE OF LIVERPOOL'S PAPERS HAVE AN ARCHITECTURAL CORRESPONDENT.........Why?
Given the sensitivity of Scousers to criticism of their city, architecture minister Barbara Follett may not want to visit Liverpool any time soon.
Speaking at a Theatres Trust event last week, she mouthed that Merseyside — a Unesco world heritage site — was something of a culture-free zone before it became European City of Culture last year. Ummmmmmmm had she forgot about the two Cathedrals and all the stuff in the Daily Post editors comments above.
Some people joked pre 2008 saying, the only culture that could be found in Liverpool was in a yoghurt in the Kwik Save in Old Swan.
Its alright for us to have a go at ourselves sometimes the only way not to cry, is to laugh, to make a joke about it. Ken Dodd said everyone in Liverpool is funny, you have to be a comedian to live here. When Ms Follett makes statements like that she is only going to show herself up. She may regret those words as Boris Johnson did.
She obviously has not seen what this city is doing to Mann Island and the Pier Head post 2008.......now that's yoghurt, I mean, culture for yer!
