Why should the taxpayer be coughing up £2million for a Beatles attraction. Leave that bet to private investors.
In the old days you were either a Beatles fan or a Rolling Stones fan. You couldn’t be both.
It’s quite clear where the musical tastes of Nadine Dorries, a Scouser and the Culture Secretary, lie.
Unbelievably she has persuaded No.10 to invest £2million of our money into a major new Beatles attraction on the Liverpool waterfront.
Sounds like a good idea. I’m sure it will attract more tourists to the city.
But why is taxpayers’ money being put into this venture?
This kind of punt is made for the commercial world.
Apparently the project could see hologram technology create an ‘’immersive experience’’ of the Fab Four - similar to an upcoming hologram tour by Abba.

All well and good but I don’t want to pay for it out of my money. It might work. It may not. That kind of bet is for private investors. The government has no mandate to start using our cash in this way.
This budget is chucking around our money like a drunken sailor. Taxes the highest for 70 years and the biggest public spending for 40 years.
Watching Boris with his arms firmly crossed during the Budget it was clear he either didn’t approve of what Sunak was doing or didn’t understand the numbers.
I am fearful that middle income England will turn against the Tories. They have nowhere to go right now but a vacuum always gets filled.
The Southern Party is on its way.

PS: If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
