Pool plans are a dead duck.
Quite incredibly, Robson (pictured) goes on to tell us that it doesn't need to be heated.
Really? Well all I would say to Mr Green is simply this, anybody who ventured into that swimming pool in October, November or December would have hypothermia within 20 minutes.
Furthermore, the temperature of the pool in those months would induce heart attacks. That is not an opinion that is a medical fact.
So please, Robson, we love you to bits, we think you're a great ambassador for the North East but let's just keep real here.
This is a dead duck and it will never be anything else but a dead duck and no amount of ridiculous nonsense talking to bring this pool back to life will succeed.
