Outameni was not bought
THE EDITOR, Sir:
Simple question: What justification do the media, various public bodies and the public have for referring to the current cass-cass as the 'Outameni' transaction?
The National Housing Trust, rightly or wrongly, has purchased a property - Orange Grove. It has clearly not purchased - not as yet, anyway - a failed, defunct theatrical production called 'Outameni', which, once upon a time, operated out of buildings on the Orange Grove property.
One of my favourite World War II movies was titled The Man Who Never Was. This strikes me as the 'Outameni' transaction that never was ... and may never be.
