Who is David Lammy?

Byker Wall 'listed'

David Lammy?

Apparently he's a Culture Minister in Tony Blair's government, and he has just decided that the monstrosity that I can see from the West Park in South Shields on a clear day (known locally as the Byker Wall) is to have "Listed status" following advice from English Heritage!

Heaven forbid, I take it that Mr. Lammy has never resided in a pigeon loft hitherto. If the Byker Wall is to be rewarded with the special protection of listed status, then I guess there is every reason to believe that the ugly lump of concrete and cedar known as The Quadrus Centre in Boldon might be protected too in years to come.
