Another idiotic government who destroy culture. Flatten the beginning of an era for many famous performers and for what. Money and back hand dealing with property developers. Why would such a place interest Gordon Brown. I was turfed out of my house and then they bulldozed it, its now a plot of green grass, instead of 100 flats. (Spence)
