What tosh Wakefield Council leader Peter Box comes up with.
Instead of doing something useful with his time in his new man cave in Burton Street he’s now re-renaming city squares after Nelson Mandela: Express December 13.
As Mr Box is so fixated with the third world and doing such a great job of turning Wakefield into a replica, you would have thought he would have given the great man the full Del Trotter treatment and named a block of flats after him.
It can only be a matter of time before Mr Box compulsory purchases the Rhubarb triangle and ploughs it up to grow groundnuts, at a financial loss of course.
History shows that Mr Mandela was very fortunate indeed that a true ‘Giant’ in the form of FW de Klerk was committed to bloodless democratic change in South Africa; as of course was Margaret Thatcher who towered above both of them...ah now that is eponymous... ‘Thatcher Towers’.
