Labour's £10 million white elephant

The next time Labour tells you there's no money, show them this.  They're spending £10 million pounds redeveloping Centenary Square.  We reported in December that it was a missed opportunity and that the money could be better spent.


Don't get me wrong, I love Birmingham city centre.  The redevelopment work over the last 30 years has transformed it into a wonderful place.  But Centenary Square has already been redeveloped.  It is already a great public square.  It doesn't need a £10 million reflective pool.  So the next time Labour tell you there is no money for building a homeless shelter or a centre for helping people who have been abused, remember it is because they spent it on a decorative pond.
