What the hell were the council thinking of when they came up with the stupid catchphrase which adorns the new £1m pavement in front of the Spanish City?
‘Aaahh - the dome - it was the Taj Mahal to us.’
They might as well have put up a giant headstone reading: ‘Aaahhh - remember how good the Spanish City was before we wasted millions letting it die.’
As a teenager in the 1970s, I worked in the Spanish City dome. Over the years, I have watched with sadness as the building and surrounding area have slowly dropped to bits, while the council has wasted millions on consultants.
This merely rubs salt into the wounds.
