What sort of sights we expect to see?

NOW that the big wheel is adorning the front of our beloved town, what sort of sights can we expect to see?

NOW that the big wheel is adorning the front of our beloved town, what sort of sights can we expect to see?

The Tropicana wasting away into a predictable wasteland, a car park, the side of some flats, another car park, some more flats, Sands 'nightclub', the pier (well the unburnt bits at the moment) and some roadwork's.

But no. According to Councillor Crockford-Hawley we can also see the town hall (just as in London we can see the Houses of Parliament). Oh joy. The difference is that one is filled to the very brim with people who seem intent on wasting public money and ignoring the electorate and the other is in London. I wonder if we can also see the awful Carrot from there as well, �150,000 worth of concrete and lights which already look as though it should have been built in Slough in 1974, attached to a tiny pointless bus shelter and standing in the centre of a sea of paving slabs like a giant middle finger aimed at Westonians who have forgotten what a green and pleasant place Weston once was.
