""In 1998 Birmingham renamed its celebrations "Winterval",

Quoted from this message

No it didn't. You're being had by the tabloid press. You are a mug.

'According to an official statement from the council, Winterval - which ran in 1997 and 1998, and never since - was a promotional campaign to drive business into Birmingham's newly regenerated town centre. It began in early November and finished in January. During the part of that period traditionally celebrated as Christmas, "there was a banner saying Merry Christmas across the front of the council house, Christmas lights, Christmas trees in the main civil squares, regular carol-singing sessions by school choirs, and the Lord Mayor sent a Christmas card with a traditional Christmas scene wishing everyone a Merry Christmas".'

Quoted from this message

You said Coventry but didn't specify a year. However the fact that this happened last year means that IF (and it is a mighty big if) there is any truth in your rumour then it has been subsequently dropped anyway.

Gosh, no wonder you're a researcher. You found that out all by yourself.

Actually the stuff in quotes is from B'ham council saying exactly what Christmas decorations they did put up.

intimacy with a minor is illegal. Intamcy between 2 consenting adults is not illegal. Sorry to piddle on your warped ill-informed mindset yet again chris-leeds. :-)

On a diferent not, has middleton, the area where u live, still got a curfew ASBO for all youths under 20, due to the horrendous social problems, violence and intimidation by young adfults in the area?

Um sorry to tinkle on your bonfire ABL but I don't live there and never have I heard anything as ridiculous as that. :-)
