Re: Re: The destruction of St. Stephen’s Green
Bor B: don’t get aerated: (a) I’m not in Ireland and (b) your argument was rubbish. And yes, there are differently-shaped currencies (or ‘pots of money’ if you prefer) and ‘good causes’ rarely see what was ‘wasted’ on something else, but medical waste (in a financial sense) puts most other attempts at budgeting in the shade.
For what it’s worth, the proposal to dig up the Green could be digging up what is left of the integrity of Dublin city centre; it’s a crackpot scherme and shows the utter indifference of transport engineers to urban heritage or townscape or anything else. It will go over budget and it will wreck the Green.
