The people of Aberdeen have been cornswaggled by their council AGAIN.
The big lie that was Marischal Square is exposed.
There is no square. There probably never was any intention of creating a square, by any definition.
We were duped. We were wary of their promises but were duped by that old trick of the public consultation. Look where that’s taken us.
Cast your eyes on this projection for how the Muse Development will look once the concrete is poured and the common land, that belongs to everyone in the city, is turned over to a private development for the erection of tawdry towers.
Which means this development was given the full-hearted support of Labour members of the council willingly.
Not one of them recognised the architectural outrage they were about to impose on the city.
