Trust me Den they aren't all for the better either.
I wonder how much this city spent in the olden days ripping up the tram lines.

I really don't understand why trams were done away with, all they needed was upgrading and modernising. Don't tell me that the economists didn't see the massive rises in fuel costs coming even 60 years ago.

Phil
I doubt if economists see anything ahead that will actually happen, they live only in a world of theories. Anyway, it would have been a decision of the councillors (plus of course those paying backhanders to them). Possibly the same councillors that decided to bulldoze most of the city to build "something new" , only to have most of that condemned a few years later

Exactly right Mike, there will always be change but change for changes sake is just ridiculous
