Number two and the better of the two things is that Ed Vaizey the minister for Culture and other things is also the minister in charge of listing buildings. As luck would have it he's a fan of post-war architecture. Put those two things together and the very beautiful/awful depending on your view Preston Bus Station finally received Grade 2 listing yesterday.

Given half the chance Preston/Lancashire County will still demolish it but that task just got a bit harder. The hard work starts today to restore and cherish the one remarkable building in the place*. Hooray! Big applause, cheers and pats on the back especially to John Wilson for all his hard work and FOI requests to get to the facts and cut through the spin. Not to mention this amazing banner.
