After falling over themselves to get it demolished, Gateshead council have had the nerve to ‘unveil’ a plaque in commemoration of Rodney Gordon’s Trinity Square development. Pride of place by the fire exit of the corporate abortion they’ve put up in its place. Arseholes. 

All we need now is a statue of T Dan Smith atop Grey’s monument, and the irony will be complete.

Fuming.

One of the only pictures i’ve been able to find of this monolithic cube building in the background on Melbourne St. Currently home to BT i think. Information is scarce. Old Manors station here too.
