Another desperate reshuffle at the Culture Company

The Liverpool Culture Company attempts a clean sweep of the ineptitude that has cursed the build up to the 2008 celebrations. After lots of public infighting local media has confirmed that TV Producer Phil Redmond will now spearhead the artistic side of the 12 month cultural period. The board running Liverpool’s showpiece capital of Culture year met on Tuesday and agreed most of its members would stand down. Bryan Gray, chairman of the Northwest Regional Development Agency, will chair the new board. It has been also reported that the members of the culture company have not ruled out reallocating money or finding cash to fund changes in the programme.
Mr Gray said: “There will be tight control of the budget, but if there are good ideas we'll look at them as well.”
We at the Liverpool Mural Project would welcome a positive response from the new board running the Culture Company towards our plans for Liverpool in 2008. Like Jimmy McGovern said about our project in The Guardian recently, "God knows the Culture Company needs a winner or two right now."
