Starr's house saved again

After all these years, it looks like a combination of Joe Anderson and Grant Shapps have done what Flo Clucas never could, and saved Ringo Starr's first home.

And actually saved this time, not merely issued some half-asses promise about it being taken down and rebuilt in some ill-defined museum somewhere. It's actually part of a plan to save some of the Victorian terraces in the city which had been due to be demolished, so it goes beyond Beatleabilia in its significance.

Assuming, of course, that this time the promises are genuine and not merely a cheap photo op that won't actually deliver. But, hey, what sort of politician would pull a stunt like that?
