Carlisle should ditch its “dated Border City slogan”, say leading politicians.
Have your say
Carlisle say its time to ditch the New Carlisle City Council leader.
Carlisle is known for that tagline and it's everywhere when you enter the City! Don't ditch it because some man doesn't like it! Ask the rest of Carlisle what they think before you do anything! It's not a knowledge city at all! Don't downgrade the city with pathetic taglines that a child would even laugh at! Come on Carlisle, sort it out.
I attended the conference, and other items were also discussed such as the lack or any suitable broadband at kingmoor park. And that 2Mb connection is apparantly "super Fast"The bit about not being a border city actually sounded ok, and was an interesting thought for the mixed audience. But as long as its only a thought and not a new campaign to waste our money.
Carlisle needs much more cultural substance and a sea change in attitudes before it can credibly align itself with a statement like 'knowledge city'.
