Lou: Spinnaker Pink – it’s what every well-dressed tower wears

What a fuss about the Spinnaker Tower. This is how I see it. Until now it’s always been white, but then Emirates said it would become sponsors and decided it was going to be red. Everyone complained because red is the colour of Pompey’s rival footie team Saints. If you listen to the show you’ll know I have no interest in football, so I don’t understand the commotion.

After a couple of days the public were asked to submit suggestions and Jez reckoned I should have a go.

Out came the felt tips, scissors and glue and an hour later I’d redesigned the Spinnaker. I went for a Breeze Pink theme complete with logo and inbuilt speakers. It went down well, so expect to see painters climbing the tower clutching pots of pink paint soon.
