    Agree with all comments here. History is important to learn from but we cannot continue to live in the past. Liverpool has some of the most impressive architecture and historical buildings in the UK. Liverpool is not destroying it's heritage it is developing wastelands which now do not have a purpose to provide employment, much needed homes and a sports stadium to bring locals back into the city and attract visitors from over the world.

    UNESCO may have stripped Liverpool of its world heritage status but one thing it can never do is remove the history of Liverpool, as far as I am concerned one of the worlds greatest cities.

    How many times on your life's travels have you been asked were you come from when you answer Liverpool, Regardless to whoever has asked you, will have heard of the place whether it be for its Maritime history, The Beatles, The Arctic Convoys, The waterfront including the River Mersey, Or the many many home grown comedians or the Merseybeat sound. We were on the map many many years before any other cities i can think of. And always will be Terry.

    It is important for any city to preserve as much of it's past history as it can.
    Older style buildings can often show how a city came to be what it is now, achitecture the like sof which the world may never see again.
    Building with great character not like some of the modern day style which to my mind is often soulless.
    Keep the hertiage alive so future generations can see how the city developed.

    I agree with you John, that is why people including the building unions have put a black ban on some of Sydney's oldest buildings in Parramatta because the Liberal idiot we have as Premier wants to pull them down to put up some monstrosities that look like a pack of cards.

    Venice dodges demotion on world heritage list after large cruise ships banned.

    Venice avoided being named a world heritage site in danger by UNESCO on Thursday, just weeks after Italy moved to ban large cruise ships from sailing into the city centre.

    The UK is eroding its global reputation for conserving its “unparalleled” historic assets, culture bodies have warned, with Stonehenge expected to be the next in line to lose its coveted World Heritage status after Liverpool.

    The UN’s heritage body has told ministers that Wiltshire’s cherished stone circle will be placed on its “in danger” list – the precursor to it being stripped of world heritage status – if a £1.7bn road tunnel goes ahead as planned.

    Des, I often wonder where such ideas come from.
    Modern day buildings can live very well along side those of past generations.
    One only has to look at London to see how both live side by side.
    Going back to the time of the great fire of London in 1666.

    But more than that there rea sections of Roman roads and pother architectures buried beneath some of the larger churches and buildings.
    But they have been preserved so the public can still see them, a testament to how preservation can work.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
