The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery has to be one of the, if not the very best, of its kind in the country; the Town Hall and the Council Offices are some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture the city has to offer; and it is also home to a fantastic resource centre in the form of our Central Library.
I know that many other residents of Birmingham feel the same way as I do. But it appears to me that we still have a number of young people trudging around the place as though it is some sort of inconvenience.
Recently, I have been witness a number of times to youths spitting on the steps, swearing profoundly and unnecessarily, dropping all kinds of rubbish, seemingly doing all within their power to make the place appear unpleasant and untidy.
I don't know what lame excuses they have for behaving like this, but what I do know is that these people need to be taught to appreciate what a fabulous centre of culture and history they have right on their doorstep.
Not only are their pathetic juvenile ways unfair for the locals who deserve the privilege of enjoying the area, they are also tarnishing the image of England's second city which, despite many opinions to the contrary, our council has worked very hard to put right.
The city of Birmingham is a great one and should not be tolerant of these ungrateful and disrespectful fools.
