Unesco strips Liverpool of its world heritage status

The UNESCO has stripped Liverpool of its coveted world heritage status after it blamed years of development for an ’irreversible loss’ to the historic value of its Victorian docks. The UN’s heritage body concluded at a meeting in China on Wednesday that the ’outstanding universal value’ of Liverpool’s waterfront had been destroyed by new buildings, including Everton football club’s new stadium.

The one good thing Orban in Hungary did is give that leftist mayor of Budapest a middle finger on the issue of architecture design, forced the building of traditionalist design fitting with the surrounding old remnant buildings, while scrapping all the ugly commie block and also scrapping the mayor's plans to ruin the uniformity with ugly bauhaus, neo-futurism, brutalism, and glass garb. The result is major tourism value and heritage value precisely for these reasons. Hopefully Liverpool gets better management in the future.

To any person complaining about UNESCO on this matter, imagine that a rainforest with incredible biodiversity is a world heritage site. Then, imagine that rainforest is burned down and replaced with a shanty town (but a park with some trees still remains). Would that still deserve to be a world heritage site just because it is the same location? Of course not. Great things need to be protected. If not, they are no longer great. This is a wake-up call that should have happened in the 1950s.

Why do leftists hate history and greenery? They always tear it down to put some disgusting modern art or new apartments. They're doing it all across Southern USA now. Cutting down our forrests so they can have summer homes.
