    Hmmm. Might have looked a little better if clad in Portland stone as originally intended but a chav in Armani is still a chav. The new Tesco entrance greenhouse is a shade better but nothing beats the original Victorian version. Why not rebuild it? It perfectly matched the Council House and even the designer of the Town Hall would have found it handsome. I'm with Charlie on this. The 1960s concrete mess looks more like a place you burn books than read great literature. Let's put some poetry back into Brum.
