Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Improvements to the Inner City

Dog's post below about nasty commuter trains got me thinking about how things are always being made better.

There's a small area in the city centre that is being redeveloped. It's named Trinity Square. The history of development on the chunk of land might serve as a social commentary for England and what makes it tick.

First it was a church and cemetary. The victorians were preoccupied with death, or rather the prospect of an afterlife.

And then that was knocked down and replaced with a multi storey car park. The Englishman's home is his car.

Now that's going to make way for the latest phase. They're putting up a leisure complex combined with student accomodation. I mean, we can't get enough of either of those, can we. It's a bit of a joke really.

  • I never quite forgave them for demolishing the old Trinity Square shops and the Evening Post offices where the Cornerhouse now stands...
