Beatles Day

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.

*Disclaimer: I was born near Liverpool and my parents were both born in Liverpool and grew up there.
