I don’t really know enough about the contemporary aspirations of planning culture now to comment. But if you look at Milton Keynes in the UK as a prime example of 60’s utopianism, its history is hilarious. I got given a tour about 10 years ago, when I was looking to do a project there. Its original planners were entrenched in new-age ideology. They even sited its main artery, Midsummer Boulevard, on the axis of the summer solstice sunrise.

We had a chat with #strike4repeal to see what it is all about.
We saw you put a call out for a strike in Ireland, what is your demand?
Aoife: We are demanding that the government give us a date for a referendum on repealing the 8th amendment. The state’s talking shop on this issue, coming on 34 years since the constitutional change, is dangerous and cowardly. The Protection of Life during Pregnancy Act 2013 just criminalised abortion further under the guise of a totally inaccessible ‘legal route’ which, given the case of Ms. Y, would be pretty ill-advisable for anyone to pursue. It seems the government is happy to wait around, delay and bow down to a minority wing of anti-choice zealots; we are not.
Some of us here at rabble have had quite enough of dry January at this stage, thank you.
