I AM writing to tell you my opinion on the issue of the Tropicana. What you are about to read is a piece of English homework I was set, which was to write a speech about an issue I feel very strongly about.Some of you may have been to the Tropicana. I never did. My mum did, and she and I agree that all the people who owned it needed to do was put a roof on it, then it wouldn't have had to close. Everyone I asked has said they loved it. So why close it?The Tropicana has been closed for around eight years, but now they are talking about building something to replace it after all that time! Why haven't they started building? They've had the site for ages. Plus, they're not even starting to build it until 2010! I'm not going to be able to go until I'm around 20.We really need a fun pool in Weston and another four to seven years is not quick enough!Now you know how I feel. The people who are supposed to be sorting this out need to buck up their ideas, and get on with what they've been going on about for ages.'To make money you have to spend money, and to spend money you have to make money' should be their motto. When I performed this to my classmates they were all clapping, cheering and they all agreed with me, and I hope you all do too.JORDAN DYER (Age 11) - Linnet Close, Mead Vale
