    Default QR2 for sale?

    I spelt QE2 WRONG
    NOT QR2

    Dubai may sell QE2 to tackle debt crisis
    The high-profile "trophy asset" of Dubai's boom years may have to be sold to pay off the emirate's mounting debts.
    Todays News.

    What a waste, that ship should have been preserved opposite the Cunard Buildings, where it was designed at the Pier Head, docked in a Lagoon that would be tideless and used for tourists , as a Hotel , Offices, and part of the University, night clubs, weddings, conference centres good for weekends etc. it was only 50m. It will now probably go to scrap
    Paul Macartney could have bought that for the City. he would not have even noticed it ,all his money came from the kids of Liverpool.

    We Brits have no real regard for our heritage,as Captain Kong said,now and in the past,the QE2 was conceived in Liverpool and should spend the rest of her days there too. She would make a magnificent addition to the City,it certainly would be a major tourist attracion and could be used as a convention centre/hotel etc,etc.Where are ll those public Liverpudlian worthies who could head up a subscription list to help buy her back. As poor as I am,I would donate what I could to help buy her. Come Yoer's ,let's get a campaign started to bring the old girl home!
