Lidl On Equality

The PPR (Participation & The Practice Of Rights) project has called for homes to be built at the Crumlin Road “Hillview” site but the council’s planning council approved a retail park (Belfast Live) by a vote of 7 to 6 (BelTel). The connection to supermarket chain Lidl is unclear, as there is no mention of a supermarket in the plans for the retail park. If you can shed any light, please leave a comment. Their slogan “Lidl: Big on quality, Lidl on price” has been rephrased as “Lidl: Big on quality, Lidl on equality”.

Deep Love

Dublin’s ADW (tw | web | Fb) came north for CNB/HTN17 and painted a mermaid rescued(?) by a deep-sea diver – with a mustache to match her tail. The meme goes back at least to this 1895 Punch cartoon.

Pearl

The female figure painted by Irony (twFb | tumblr) for CNB/HTN was the subject of a naming competition. There were various humorous suggestions but our favourite is “Iris”, to go with “Aether and Echo”, which is the name of the pub.
