    Covid Memorial

    they're building a covid memorial here in Bedworth
    and burning it next weekend...
    local feeling is mixed, but most would have prefered a memorial that lasted.

    feels like they are saying have your 'moment' then shut up about it and move on...

    Seems a bit pointless when the government insist they can't help people out with their outrageously overpriced energy bills!

    The happy clappy brigade love it...
    The rest of us just think its a waste of money.

    I'd rather have a bronze plaque and put the money to a food bank for struggling families...

    Council put up 100,000 and the organisers have been begging money from the locals and local businesses....

    Agree with you mate some it lasting and at 1000th of the price would have been more fitting memorial with some feeling behind it . Not just one quick flash and it's all forgotten

    Let me get this straight. They’re building it...to burn it, is that right? Yeah, great idea. I’m off to kick my own ass, that’s a great idea too.

    it's just completely wasteful...
    why not just buy half a million quids worth of petrol and set fire to that?

    the word locally is it cost over 200,000 in private, 24hr, round the clock security guards,
    just to stop some local toerag with a box of matches from torching it...

    Some times you just get gobsmacked on how so called educated people can be so thick as to put money into something like that they walk among us.

    Never underestimate the power of the stupid if we allow them to form into groups - this Council should be removed from office at the next election.

    the organsiers probably have so much money they have no grip on the harsh realities of life for 'normal' working class people...

    they probably spend more than 650,000 on eating out at swanky resturants a year....

    a conservative council that have just been re-elected with an increased majority this month...

    it's actually out of character for them,
    the labour council that have ruled the roost for decades wasted so much money it was unreal,
    they even lost a 30 million pound government grant because the finance officer couldn't add up!

    but no, just a local labour councillor who lost out on goverment funding because the figures submitted simply didn't add up.
    Bedworth used to be a 100% staunch labour seat, and still is...the vast majority still consider themselves labour to the core.
    but even they can't stomach the ruin the labour inflicted on the town.
    and it's now 100% tory...council and MP...
