    I'm sorry, but this cheapens things and makes it all feel rather sordid and tacky.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    If it ever goes ahead. I wonder how much this folly will end up costing the city? I bet they'd not taken out insurance against things like covid.

    And the people of Coventry will be having huge Council Tax rises for years to pay for it.

    Please forgive me for being underwhelmed. I can't see this recouping the expenditure.

    Regardless of any covid, if being city of culture was actually worth anything you wouldn't need throw money at it.

    It'll be interesting to watch the albino pachyderm walking the streets, though!
