On the way up I popped in to see the exhibition "Titanic and Liverpool: the untold story". Basically, the untold story in question seems to be "we have this model of the Titanic, let's jump on the Titanic bandwagon".
This left me slightly irritated.
My mood did not improve in the slightest when I when to the slavery exhibition. It was a "vibrant celebration of African culture" with loads of words carved into walls, loads of twats talking UTTER shit on video screens and only a handful of exhibits that actually related to slavery.
I really can't see where Liverpool gets its reputation for mawkish sentimentality from.
