Museum of Liverpool-More Legal Action.
How can a bunch of bungling buffoons led by David Fleming and Phil Redmond get away with such incompetence. Both should go now.

Yes he would say that, this is the plastic scouser who does not live in Liverpool that defended the £750,000 that was paid to Downing over the breach of covenants over protected views that should have seen a pay off to every Liverpudlian for an act of architectural vandalism.

Now there is a 500k dispute over the museum steps.

You could not make this up if you tried. This is the building that came runner up in BD's Carbuncle Cup competition for the worst designed building of 2011.
