CHARLES GRAHAM - Still doubts over eyesore demise

Share this article

I AM still not going to believe it until I see it.

So many times have there been promises that the reviled Borsdane precinct is to be demolished only for the deadline to come and go as further bureaucratic complications set in, that the announcement of another D-Day (or at least a D-month - September) again leaves me waiting with some scepticism.

It has to be said that this time several more components are in place, although there are still documents to sign and that can often be relied upon to stall proceedings.

One thing is for sure: when this hideous Hindley eyesore does crumble under the wrecking ball, I’ll be first in line at the celebration party!
