Late Booking

On the day that the Guardian reports on plans by Birmingham to build the UK's largest library, the cuts in Wirral's libraries were due to kick in. It now appears that Culture Secretary Andy Burnham will now initiate an Inquiry, which may or not bring a reprieve. At least there should be some proper debate now as clearly this issue has been watched by councils throughout the land.

I did visit the Wirral Museum a couple of weeks ago and did draft a post on this, so I'll dig it out once my horses have lost at Aintree.
