TWAJ: Provincial attitudes

In the last couple of years, I have produced two rather boring proposals on how to turn around the diminishing communities of two cities I have lived in, Sheffield and Edinburgh. The stultifying majority of the content was designed to cover up some of the more radical suggestions I had to make, but even so, neither was pursued by either community. This could be because the ideas were daft or unworkable, or of course because the decision-makers have already chosen the path of dying out with dignity, with the last Jew in town turning off the lights as they head off to London.

The truth is likely to be somewhere in between; I leave it at your discretion as to where. In any event, rather than let several bum-numbing evenings of typing go to waste, you can download them using the links below and feel free to pinch any handy ideas:

Sheffield: A New ReGeneration

Edinburgh: If Not For Ourselves
