Criticism of web image of Wirral playing field ignores wider question
1:32pm Tuesday 14th August 2012 in Letters
THE criticism of the “despicable” web image of soldiers’ graves superimpose on Ingleborough Fields (Globe, August 1) completely ignores the wider question posed by the image.
Is it morally right and acceptable to sell a war memorial in order to profit a commercial undertaking?
It is the land at Ingleborough Road, which is the war memorial, and as such the use of the ground is legally restricted to use as a playing field.
This restriction is known to Tranmere Rovers and Wirral Borough Council because it is a condition in the agreement which allowed the ground to be sold for a few thousand pounds.
It is hard to follow the business logic as to how the the resubmitted plan to sell their training ground and revamp Woodchurch leisure centre, which they do not own, is going to help the football club.
If the change of use is granted, it will effectively set a precedent that it is acceptable to put a price on the head of anybody killed on active service.
It isn't. It is morally wrong and can bring further disrepute on the citizens of Wirral This plan should be kicked a long way into touch DB by email.
