Isn't it disgusting and a sign of how our region has changed since the 1980's that this main-stay of Sunderland's new bridge was manufactured abroad and shipped back ready to instal. We once had the worlds finest bridge building company, Dorman Long, builder of some of the worlds most iconic bridges, on our doorstep, but it didn't, like most of our heavy manufacturing, steel, shipbuilding and mining industries, survive Margaret Thatcher's master plan for the British economy. I only hope that when this structure passes up river to it's eventual final location and passes by the now reclaimed shipyards and closed engineering plants, under The Monkwearmouth Bridge (Dorman Long built) it reminds people of what used to be and exactly what economic price our region paid for a political theory!

Maggie's solution to all ills was to remove all subsidies from tax-paying industries and employees, reallocated it to shoring the non-tax paying banking and other money sectors.

Possibly the only country in the world to do so.
