    I always found Manchester a cheerless place, by that I don't mean the weather, I  think it is the architecture that is very dull and uninspiring, it is bad enough living in an industrial environment but if the buildings have nothing to cheer you up it can be a bit depressing, just my thoughts on the subject  Bollocks... 2024858757

    I agree, there are some impressive buildings, but there's no structure to the place, meaning you have a very nice building, and next to it is a sixties monstrosity...
    Right in the city centre there was a piece of greenery (Piccadilly Gardens), they had been the gardens of an old hospital which was knocked down some years back and replaced with a hotel/office building that looks like an alien space ship gone wrong, the gardens were a bit run down, basically a scruffy piece of grass about the size of a football pitch, it was decide to tidy it up, there were various articles in the newspapers at the time about the infighting in the council as to what should be done with it, we'll, there must have been some big brown envelopes going around... A big square red brick office block with two or three bars on the ground floor, a concrete thing like a wartime gun emplacement which become a coffee shop, a water feature that kids play in, a lot of pathing slabs and a patch of grass not big enough for a dog to have a decent shit on, to sum it up, a fu#king mess...

    Just remember, I'm. Scottish, an atheist, and don't give a shit............

    Oh, girlfriend at the time daughter worked in Clinton Cards in the Arendale Centre, nobody thought it was for real, they were made to cash up etc, they were just exiting the building as the bomb went off, great threat to the world, a girl working in a card shop...




    Not having a dig at the Irish, love the good ones, hate the twats...




    There ain't no god you wankers, sort it...

    Yeah, can't condone or defend those wankers. Luckily they were a tiny minority. I see there are still a few nutters that want to drag us back into the mire. The more the economy improves the more these dickheads will disappear.  Can't tar everyone with the same brush though, otherwise there wouldn't be an Englishman safe in Ireland. Btw, we seem to have a huge English population over here, English in particular, not Scottish or Welsh. When I collect the kids from school, you wouldn't believe the amount of English accents I hear. I wonder why??? Must be the weather.
