    I like the exterior of Speke Hall. The inside is largely Victorian kitsch. The café charges extortionate prices. I think I paid £2 (or more) for a bottle of Sasparilla. Fortunately I'm a member of...

    Thank God for that. Too many people are sweating propery in the town centre (and elsewhere). It's not illegal but there's something IMO immoral about it, especially if it's not properly maintained...
