Sorry SB, I have no explanations.
Perhaps Birmingham is under the control of an alien species that has no local fidelity whatsoever.

Please do not think that i am being racist with my next comment but if Birmingham council was not run by the asian community we would not be having this conversation. Most councillors are from asian background so I suppose it is to be expected that this would happen.

The lift incident is interesting. The large useless Spinnaker tower erected in Southsea a few tears ago as an ego-project also had similar initial problems with its outside glass lift. In the end they gave up. Hope the same does not occur here. It does raise the question , though, as to whether all lift manufacturers are completely incompetent (I won't say British lift manufacturers, as I don't think there are any of these any more )

I don't know if what you say is correct (nor living in Birmingham myself), but if that is so, then it is the fault of non-asians not being prepared to do anything , or to vote in those who can do something

I would not have chosen that design, certainly not the external design, but there does need to be a central library. The "questioner " in the piece, however is from Brent and is complaining about her local libraries. I was not aware that Birmingham , or the immediate area had somewhere called Brent. London chooses to spend its money on supporting a vast transport system and giving subsidies to its inhabitants so that pensioners can travel free on the underground and rail networks over a vast area. This is not so in Birmingham, who choose to spend their money how the local council wishes. Of course, whether this is the same as what would be chosen by Birmingham's inhabitants is a different matter, but is bugger all to do with people in Brent

Quite right mike but as it happens the good people of Birmingham have as much of a say in how the Council spends its money as the good people of Brent would have in how Birmingham Council spends its money.
