    Thumbs down Another Tacky Tourist Attraction

    All that's needed now is a roller coaster, and Stratford can go head-to head with Blackpool: http://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news/...tratford-avon/

    They know the price of everything, but the value of nothing!

    Tacky isn't the word I'd use, but I do think it's in extremely poor taste and indicates the direction that Stratford is likely to take in future years.

    SDC has ok'd the wheel in principle, all any operator will need is planning permission (which the council will just wave through,as it's their idea): http://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news/...tratford-avon/

    Right, where's my 'Kiss Me Quick' hat.....

    The wheel's looking more likely, despite a lot of people actually opposing it: http://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news/...eel-stratford/

    Quite possibly; someone on the council's likely to make money from it.

    Ah, then it's a definite then.

    Trouble is you can rarely connect Councillors to these things, unless someone tells tales out of school.

    Another objection to the wheel. Hopefully, this will drag on so long, it won't be worth putting the wheel up for the couple of weeks of summer that'll be left: http://www.stratford-herald.com/5392...stratford.html

    Well, the Tories are going to take a bashing at the next local elections: http://www.stratford-herald.com/5511...-approved.html

    You know Lex, I wonder if they will?

    I would have thought that the Coventry Labour candidates would have taken a drubbing over the lies and shenanigans that the council had gotten up to. But no, it didn't happen.

    You could be right there. Stratford's given the Tories a kicking before, but then welcomed them back with open arms.

    Stratford's getting its wheel in 2 weeks. Great.

    It's all about worshiping the little God of money.
