Good on yer, Grumpy. Go for it. ;)
And there is more...you and I wonít be able to afford to pay for a ticket to the opening ceremony I suspect, but all the councillors of our wonderful city council will have a free ticket for themselves and family. But they havenít forgotten us plebs...they are going to give us a 3.6% increase in our council tax in order to pay for it.  ::)

Are there any other former athletes or sports people on the forum.

I see that the cost of relocating the bus depot to make room for accommodation has risen from a proposed £2m to around £15m.

That is a serious underestimate, that seems to have been made on comments & assumption rather than a written estimate.  Shocking really.

  Architects and Quantaty Survayers who make these price assumptions should be made to pay the difference at the end.


They get paid £1,000s ,so should make up any shortfall when built.

Judith does that really surprise you , when you take in to account that other nonsense taking place in the country ?

no surprise to me either...always said the cost of this 11 day wonder would ruin the city by going over budget...yet another white elephant for the glory seeking council
