The Scotsman reports that there is a row going on in Edinburgh over the placing of a £500K giant TV screen, ostensibly to be used to show the 2012 Olympics.
Not surprisingly people are not that keen to have such a monstrosity erected in view of their backyards.
Aside from the obvious waste of money, the unasked/unanswered question is what will be shown on the TV once the Olympics have finished?
Aesthetically "pleasing" commercials, or government propaganda films?
Either way a giant TV screen, costing £500K, is hardly a legacy worth boasting about is it?
