    Yep. What we need is Parky planting a burning cross in the centre circle a la Souness/Galatasaray And Ken to step up with white pillow cases with eye holes placed under each seat That'll crank up the atmosphere somewhat

    Wouldn't see a reason to take one over the other. Both sound as a pound. Love both of their views on the world considering that they are at complete opposite ends of the spectrum

    In Or Out Again

    Really interesting article that Micky. Despite it's obvious pro-Thatcher bias, it raises a number of salient points, in particular (and I'm paraphrasing here) the clinging on to the industrial revolution (because we invented it) and the lack of foresight in "retraining" to move forward with technology For those old enough to remember the 3-day week, power cuts, and the like. Mick McGahey demanding 35% pay rises for the miners yet refusing to amend outdated working practices. Red Robbo crippling the British car industry that was producing wrecks like the Austin Allegro and Morris Marina that started rusting within a year of purchase For me, regarding Thatcher, you had to be there, and living in the time, to truly understand why and how she came to power. Yes, she was divisive, but she needed to be because, in general, the British public was sick and tired of being held hostage by the unions. Sorry, let me clarify, sick and tired of being held hostage by self-serving union leaders who were feathering their own nests. Those union leaders were cunts. They had a workforce who had to follow them (closed shop anyone - can you imagine that now?) and it was the working class man, the miner, the docker, the printer, etc, that suffered, not the leaders Thatcher changed things for the better, but what she failed spectacularly to do was put any forward plan in place for the unskilled worker, and I have every sympathy for people like leigh-white (if I'm understanding his post correctly). I lived in Sheffield during the miners strike and saw the abject poverty suddenly inflicted on mining families with no plan to help them. Mrs Manc's uncle was a Doncaster miner - fuck me, he and his family suffered - but all he wanted to do was work but couldn't thanks to Scargill. He proposed many working changes to make things more efficient and cost-effective but was basically told to fuck off. And then the pit shut!!! Thatcher made many mistakes but she knew what needed to be done and she just went and did it which in hindsight was the best thing imo I look now at the Brexit arguments and think that is nowt compared to Thatcher, the miners, The Falklands Corbyn? Shit Arthur Scargill. You're just a shit Arthur Scargill. Shit Arthur Scargill. You're just a shiiiiiit Arthur Scargill

    Decent Podcasts

    Justin Moorhouse’s podcast is quite entertaining - nowt controversial and easy listening Have also been quite surprised by That Peter Crouch Podcast. Was convinced that I wouldn’t like it but he’s actually pretty good

    Town Centre Latest

    Glad to hear some positive stuff for once It’s still a shithole from what I’ve seen on my occasional forays into Bolton, but it does seem that an effort is being made, and given time, and decent thinking could return to being brilliant, which it was in my younger days. Days when I never saw the need to drink, eat or shop in Manc
