Any campaign to save and upgrade the Victoria Market won’t be anything like the crowd funding of the doctors who are driving the People’s Convoy to Syria, neither is it the kind of issue that’s going to stop people getting married, divorced, arguing or shopping but the Victoria Centre Market (the place where I earnt enough on a fruit and veg stall at fifteen to buy my first pair of ice skates) needs  someone to say that the market is a vibrant and diverse space with links across the world to customers of every background. We should never underestimate the value of this kind of business exchange, it’s naive to be snooty about old types of business and new types of business.

Any campaign to save and upgrade the Victoria Market won’t be anything like the crowd funding of Hope hospital in Aleppo which is the result of many, many campaigns like  the  doctor driven People’s Convoy to Syria,

Neither is it the kind of issue that’s going to stop people getting married, divorced, arguing or shopping but the Victoria Centre Market  is more important than people realise because it can thrive, it can bring in new people, new ideas and it can provide what’s missing form the high street and build new businesses.
