Liverpool is celebrating its most famous sons with its first Beatles Day.
Look, at the risk of going all 'Boris Johnson', this is one thing that really bothers me*. Let's face it, every day in Liverpool is Beatles day. It is hard to escape it as it seems to be the default setting.
Liverpool has a long and interesting history, some of it not great, but there is a lot to be proud of in that city. Yet for years now it always comes back to the Beatles and it is getting really, really dull.
