TITANIC as a wow factor? No, it was a big boat that sank because of the incompetence of its officers - hardly a subject of celebration.

Some people are becoming obsessive about this wow carry-on, does it really matter what Portsmouth spends its money on?

What we need here is a clean, decent, well-run, prosperous and unflooded place to live, not a tall pole surrounded by shops.

Southampton already is a wow city.
