Late objections from a member of the public were cast aside by Councillors as they removed the final obstacles standing in the way of The Point’s demolition.
Despite claims of fond farewells for one of the city’s signature icons, the plaudits came across as hollow, with no single recognition of The Point being a beacon and cultural backbone to the city for decades. Cllr Baines’ statement was extremely telling; “I am a new boy in the city. I have no fondness for it because I never went there.”
Since when did we start electing people that do not know what it means to eat, sleep and live MK to represent us, and make decisions on our most beloved structures?
