Scaffolding and wrapping buildings in plastic as be come an art.

Interesting! I bet this is costing more than I made in my lifetime.

I used to call this place "the looney bin." I guess they have put it in a straight jacket now !

This was a missed opportunity for some artist with a thing about plastic wrap to make something interesting out of a big sheet of it.

Will be a bit of history in that photo in the future Brian showing the restoration taking place in the new town hall in 2015

It's amazing they can find the money to look after the place they work but can't seem to find it to repair the roads!!

Hope no bride- to-be has arranged a wedding before June

And they can't afford the £1300 for policing the Saint George's parade. How sad and selfish they really are! "All mine...."

All the money they are spending on this is at the expense of scocail workers and, their work with others. Well!!!!
