Birmingham Beaches

The Bullring Beach

The other item, tacked, for some reason, onto the bottom of the previous report also made me howl with laughter. Under typically leaden skies, with rain lashing down, Birmingham City Council is building ... wait for it ... a beach in Chamberlain Square, next to the town hall (that's as well as the one in the Bull Ring), complete with "tasteful" artificial palm trees! The council is convinced that "The beach will become a major tourist attraction in its own right, rivalling Paris and Berlin." Meanwhile, I'm convinced that Birmingham will become Britain's second-rate second-city laughing-stock, once again.

What's saddest of all is that they keep on wondering why. Bull Ring Beach
