Over at the PigBlog, the Stymaster has done it again. He’s posted a restrained, beautifuly controlled rant about the fate of historic buildings in Walsall, and their propensity to spontaneously combust.
The scandal over the handling of the former Methodist Church is long and protracted, but in essence, we’ve been told repeatedly by those in charge that the council were getting tough – now it seems the developers have got exactly what they wanted. As is usual with Walsall’s weak, ineffectual and hopeless council, what the community wants can go to hell, but businessmen get exactly what they want.
It all stinks.
