I read that wrong for an instant. Made me blush.

Being cultured, in and of itself, does not necessarily equate with being couth. Supposedly Hitler was quite fond of Wagner.

What's wrong with that? These two play Metallica and it is quite cultured!

I'm quite upset tbh on behalf of Paisley. A relative of mine was the first person to write a novel in Doric Scots and a different relative invented the patented dye for turkey red which forms the "must have" of the Paisley pattern. Since the thread company closed production there has been precious little to celebrate in Paisley. I laughed the other day though because someone tweeted that someone was playing a David Bowie number on a harp in town and if that wasn't culture what was? :D

I hope the bidding process isn't as shady as the one for the Olympics...

That explains it, more of a culture awards night. (OK more than one)

I'd have considered that, to be named as a city of Culture, that you'd have to have earned the title by being known far and wide for hosting cultural events. It's not like the Olympics where an event is only held every so often. Sounds more like a plug for tourism than anything else. Adelaide, for many decades, was known as a city of churches, however, I do believe that it no longer can lay claim to that title given the secularisation of society in general.

I didn't see anything in the article re who/what body/process made the decision. Would you point me in the right direction?

The article mentions only 4 or 5 other cities that were competing; were these cities the finalists in some kind of a process of elimination method?

And finally is there some kind of an appeal (of the decision) process?
