typical oldham council
here's another way oldham council wasted money
they recently errected a huge banner that covers the hole of one side of civic centre it's 15 stories tall (2oo ft or 61 meters)
first off they didnt even have planning permission
2nd the picture on this poster looks like a giant cock!
if you look here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Civic_Centre_at_Oldham.png)
the poster covers the whole of the left side
