I’m sure I read in the DE that the two new cargo cranes in the western docks are going to be higher than the Spinnaker tower.

Not sure they will bring in the tourists though…but more of an attraction than a night on the town in Derby

Stick blue lights on top to send TSW into meltdown


#323

I wouldn’t be so sure mate

A couple of large cranes will send Sotonians into fantasy land.

This is a City that’s wants an ice rink but has been given an extra lump of it in their drink, even the low aspiration of flat frozen water gets rejected, what next local punters ask for slide in park only to be put on hold and a museum of a sunken ship, hold on…


#325

Those ISIS boys use their cranes imaginatively. Some people just need to open their minds.


#326

Jeez…have you read them? I know Baz will defend them to the hilt, but “café culture” and “retail therapy” in the top 10? Even Southampton can give them a run for their money…maybe. Probably not.

I couldn’t care for Derby in the slightest, its ok, and that ok is better than Southampton’s night out, we’re being diverted to a comparison event between Derby and Southampton’s night out which wouldn’t worry anyone but there is a winner and it isn’t Southampton, this concerns the massive lack of ambition on the councils part, where has the cruise money gone? What keeps the tourist in the City spending money? What are the plans for the future to enhance tourism?

In short its shit, no conference centre, no ambition to really create a public waterfront, ice rink etc etc just retail space for generic shops and restaurants and rabbit hutch apartments (I hate that word apartment its a fucking flat), no stand out public buildings or plans to build them, no great plans to enhance public transport within the City which is shite.

Southampton - Its shite

I’ve written to Caroline Nokes, Alan Whitehead and Royston Smith and they have assured me they are looking into my monorail suggestion very very seriously.


#329

Trams? Urban metro train system? Northam station open along with the line?

The mp’s are low ambitioned shite.


#330

Didn’t you manage to slip in a request for an ice rink as well?


#331

All MP’s over the last 20 years have stopped acknowledging my requests for an ice rink, even the ones I wrote in my own blood and faeces :lou_angry:


#332

Its a place that nothing happens I know that, it should be a cool place but its gash.


#333

There’ll be queues a mile long and tubby people poorly dressed will think Christmas has come early, Merry Oak and Millbrook will have a 24 hour party for this…

There’ll be people going out for a meal in their shiny trousers and shoes so pointy they’ll have your eye if you’re not careful.
