Re: Re: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
This is a very simple question:
Why is it in the national interest to build a “National Conference Centre”? And what exactly is it?
Is it just a big building that can accommodate 20,000 people? Is it purely so that hoteliers and restaurateurs can sell more? Is it some kind of national pride issue like having a national “flag carrier “airline? If so will it lose money like other national flagships?
The RDS can hold something like 5,000. Quantity isn’t everything. I think the world economic forum in Davos is just for 2,000 people yet this must generate a lot of cash and attention for the town.
If we build it what will be held there? The annual european dentists convention or something?
