The Dublin Docklands Development Authority wants to raise the height of the proposed U2 tower to 100 metres, only 20 metres lower than the Spire.
Err no they don't ...Ever see ghostbusters 2 where they do the 7 years later thing at the start and they are driving around the city lamenting the good ole days and wishing they could go back?
Well unfortunately, in this case we don't have any good ole days to look back on. We squandered them. When we examine this proposal and the infighting between politicians, developers, planning authorities and the media hype we see everything that is bad about this country and nothing that is good. This proposal was made up 10 years ago and all that has occured in between was infighting and design after redesign, farcical and a sham. Landmark tower my ass.
But then we shouldn't be surprised because much of the actions of these people i.e. politicians, top level bankers, developers and supposed upholders of the law is coming under closer scrutiny as we suffer an economic collapse. What we missed and didn't pay attention to during the boom years now just frustrates us as we realise the mismanagement that has occured and the lies spun. A web of deceit. To have Given them the benefit of the doubt is what was the mistake. Heres hoping we can give them a good black eye on their way out...all of them
