I'm not sure anyone does - it seems the idea is that by removing all neon from the city the lovely old architecture hidden beneath the glare will shine through instead...

Compare the comments here to the comments on the BBC. Are they better informed and more literate or am I seeing it through rose-tinted glasses?
