Nice to see Neil McArthur has found time away from Blancmange to sit on this board. I see they have a new album out too - busy man.

Do tell us ManCan who is really running the show since those mentioned surely are only giving two minutes a fortnight!

Could you run a comps to guess the name or is it too easy?

Nice to see the Co-op getting involved eh?!! How honourable! Some co-op when several of their top execs were receiving 700k in earnings last year? surely there's some conflict of interest here with this? Peter Marks must be rubbing his hands of the thought of creaming off 1.2m+ next year??? Will he be sharing that with his employers i wonder? Read too that the council is funding their new H/Q around Miller St, costing them/us the taxpayer 20m!! plus the landscaping around amounting to 12m.....no wonder they are laughing all the way to the bank! literally....wonder if they all vote labour by any chance?? This kind fo nepotism is why the city is in the doghouse now! Its got to be stopped, seriously.
