First scalp to an urban ethic?

The British Government’s decision to unceremoniously ditch the Blairite supercasino dumped on east Manchester gives one hope that substantial policies of urban regeneration might be expected. Ok, we might now be seeing the nationalisation of a bank and a downward slide in domestic property market speculation, but allow us a sly smile at the evaporation of another example of glazed junkspace. The advance of the scavenger economy has been at least temporarily halted, leaving the Thomas Heatherwick designed ‘B of the Bang’ looking preposterously forlorn as well as insecurely constructed. When the city fathers recover from this public relations disaster can we hope that they might, at last, become admirers of Prudence?
