<b>Thursday 29 May:</b> Council now want United Victory Parade - honest - and Greater Manchester's dirty dining scene

Published on May 29th 2008.


MANCHESTER CITY COUNCIL have said that despite police objections, they do want a Victory Parade for Manchester United in August. Leader, Sir Richard Leese said: "Winning the Champions League/Premier League double is a remarkable achievement. Manchester City Council would positively encourage a victory parade as soon as practical and we are happy to carry out our responsibilities in picking up our share of the organisation."

A MAN has been attacked in his own home in Didsbury by burglars. The 21-year-old saw two men at his back door in Heritage Gardens. The men then threw bricks at his head and slashed him with a blade, before fleeing along Sandhurst Road in the early hours of Monday. The victim was taken to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

CATERING PREMISES in Greater Manchester have come under fire following a BBC investigation. According to the findings, almost a quarter of cafes, restaurants, takeaways, hospital and school canteens in Greater Manchester are not complying with hygiene laws. Over 13,000 catering premises were researched via the 10 councils in Greater Manchester under the Freedom of Information Act.

DINING OUT in the UK is at an all time low, according to new figures by Toptable. However, Manchester is bucking this trend with the number of people in the city booking tables through the website soaring by 196 per cent. Michelle Smith, editor of Toptable, said: “Diners seem to be continuing to make the most of what the city’s gastronomic scene has to offer.”

People won't be so revved up in August, if it'd been straight away then everyone would have come up, August will see much smaller crowds. Manchester Council don't like crowds do they.

So Manchester Council have finally realised how out of touch with public opinion they were and are scrabbling around for a solution to the problem they have landed themselves in. August? It should have been the Thursday or Friday after the game, not three months later. Surely even the retards that occupy the town hall can see that? The moment has passed and all that's left is a bad taste and a deep feeling of resentment. I thought the Council's statement of congratulations on their website was spectacularly ill-judged considering their utter failure to provide against the contingency of a parade. Idiots!
