    I couldn't agree more. The thing is, even the slave tour guide wants these things on show as a reminder. It is not healthy to hide such things as unsavoury as they were.

    Perhaps we should lobby the lady councillor who wanted to change the street names to bring better awareness of the city's slavery links. It would seem to be a good reason to restore frieze on the South portico of the St. Georges Hall with appropriate information and news coverage.

    i couldnt believe she wanted to change Penny Lane!
    from the tourism aspect, it is such a sacred place for many people the world over!

    I get the impression that it was the sudden realisation that Penny Lane was among the streets whose name had to be changed that broke the back of the proposal. From then on the idea was dead in the water.
