On a recent visit to Belfast, I noticed a spherical oddity being constructed out of what appears to be chicken wire on the Broadway roundabout. A local informed me that it cost nearly £500,000.
Dublin, during the economic boom, used to be badly blighted by similarly ridiculous and pointless erections. Really, do we need to waste money on such silly things when it is now impossible to obtain an evening GP appointment?
