Arrow Millennium Square

Millennium Square is a large city square in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was Leeds' flagship project to mark the year 2000, and was jointly funded by Leeds City Council and the Millennium Commission. Total cost of production was £12m.
For the past few years during November & December, there has been a German Christmas Market selling Hot drinks & Foods, jewellery and textiles.

On April 30, 2001, the former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela appeared on stage in the square to open the adjoining Nelson Mandela Gardens and was given the Freedom of the City. He famously mis-acknowledged the crowd by saying how happy he was to be in Liverpool.

Being a member of the European Union has been a one-way street for Britain. Contributions from Britain to the EU budget have outstripped the benefits received in every single year of membership.In total since 1979, Britain has paid in about €260 billion (£228 billion). It has received back in benefits just €163 billion (£143 billion). The difference of €97 billion (£85 billion at today’s exchange rate) has been Britain’s subsidy to the European project.

Britain is still giving hundreds of millions of pounds in “development” aid to wealthy countries, a Sunday Telegraph investigation has found.
"how's about that, then?", "now then, now then, now then", "goodness gracious", "as it 'appens" "guys and gals". if your town is falling to pieces this may be "one" of the reasons why...
