The Bbc Just Told Me The West Midlands Is On The Up.

Recommended Posts

sadly, I saw the BBC news briefly tonight.

some waffle about the economy Rebalancing since the 2008 recession. as far as I could see someone had spanked a billion quid on Birmingham new street station and putting a shopping centre above it.

no mention of new factories or real jobs, just more waffle and the service sector.

holy $$$$ do people honestly watch this.

so, I ask, is the west midlands booming and on the up?

im west mids and its the end of the boom, its come and now its on its way out. my top of the pile employer stopped spending a year ago, the last of the big $$$$ are gone and the trickle down effect is running out, fast! lay offs have happened and production is low, no 1 is buying. of course a £100's can be stretched for a very long debt 2 income ratio...

and no, i stopped watchin the beeb when i was 18 cause its bull, sky news very slightly better, never turn on the bbc news, it is poison, sometimes check the top 5 stories 4 gossip but news? might as well look at what tricks a cat is up 2 on msn

I only go back to see my parents who live Stirchley end of Selly Oak. It was never St John's wood but some of it is now just looking 3rd world. Boarded up shops everywhere. Some new hospital they have though. It's about the same size as the Death Star.

Nice comparison. In 300 years when your grandchildrens' grandchildren have finished paying for it via PFI it will have cost the same as a Death Star.

Can we blow it up using an incestious twin with a god fixation?
