Letter: What makes milk so important?
4:42pm Thursday 26th July 2012 in Opinion
REGARDING the decision to go ahead with painting the date ‘1612’ on the side of Pendle Hill (LT, July 24) for a 500ft high piece of art, £1,500 isn't that much.
The piece on the side of the new Mall in Blackburn was £50,000.
It is being paid for by Moorhouse’s Brewery, so it isn't coming out of the public purse, so it's not wasting our money.
It’s not really vandalism as it will wash off in a month.
And I can't see how it is a destruction of natural beauty as in a month’s time, it will be gone and Natural England have approved the paint.
It will garner national press and probably boost tourism, and maybe even provoke some debate about the witch trials and maybe make people now think about how people shouldn’t be quick to jump to conclusions and judge other people if they look different to the majority.
