I am sick of hearing about the capital of culture already so I thought I would attempt to instigate a backlash.
What exactly is 08 all gonna be about? Don't get me wrong if the regeneration of the city in the name of 08 continues that's a good thing although it is debatable if anything other than Yuppie flats is being built.
However, it seems to me that in 08 we can all go shopping in the Grosvenor Development (WOOOPEEDI!) Or go and see Simon Rattle on the Philharmonic (WHO?) I'm sure the people of Kensington or Anfield are already saving their giro's up to pay for days out planned by all those trendy wendys in the culture company.
