If the wänkers at the council spent as much time actually trying to do something to help the town centre as they do on putting spin on a total load of böllocks they might achieve something.

What does everyone think of the proposals for the Greyfriars site?
Possibly another cinema?
Was only thinking the other day how much life there would be if NTFC or Saints played closer to the town centre?
On a larger scale St James Park and the Millenium Stadium are slap bang in the centre of their respective cities.

A working, fit for purpose bus station would have been nice. One with covered access to the main shopping precinct in town.

Drove from Gladstone Road opposite Oliver Adams to Cheyne Walk Hospital car park today for work (and a little home job!) with a guy from Yardley Gobion who hadn't been in Northampton "for years"
Whilst Gladstone Road is rough around the edges I think most town's have areas like this. What we commented on most was how run down the area around The Mounts, St Michaels Rd and Abington Square were. Closed down factories, wasteland created by Monkeytosh's seeming fetish for pulling buildings down and terrible grotty shops with over gaudy windows.

Wow DC, just watched this. My Pap was a stagehand at the New Theatre for donkeys years. First time I have seen a real photo of it, only seen paintings before. My old dad said it was a disgrace they knocked it down and hated Primark.
