Would you spend £188 million to build a new library only to find you have no money left to fill the shelves with books? No, I wouldn’t either, but apparently that’s what Birmingham City Council have done! Oh how fiscally imprudent, and particularly so in times of national hardship! With no money left to fulfil its role, the library is asking for book donations from members of the public. Someone couldn’t arrange a ‘piss-up’ in a brewery! Hey, I’d love to see where the £188 million went, or to be more precise…in whose pockets! Furthermore, it is doubtful the new building will be short-listed for any architectural design awards any time soon! Why I’ve crapped in a public toilet with more character!
