“Everton’s Holy Trinity and Liverpool’s five golden stars deserve a place alongside the Fab Four in any discussion of the city’s heritage.”
This seems like as good a week as any to write about the past, and how it’s not always as great as it’s cracked up to be, and how it can be comforting to cling on to the past but if we do so for too long it can weigh us down and prevent us from enjoying the present and future.
I’m referring, of course, to the “threat” posed to Liverpool’s World Heritage Site status by Everton’s plans to build a shiny new stadium on Bramley Moore Dock. Why, what else has happened this week?
The scare quotes around “threat” are there for a reason; because there really is nothing to feel threatened about.
