    Oh I'm sorry, I clearly misunderstood! The article makes it sound like people were BOOING because they thought half an hour of FOGHORNING WASN'T ENOUGH, when in fact it was QUITE THE OPPOSITE!

    THIS rather LOW-RENT thing happened in the postcode next to mine, I think I may have to MOVE. From the ads you'd think it only happened in very COMMON AREAS

    I mean REALLY

    I cannot imagine how SOUL DESTROYING it must be to be a journalist for one of these local papers constantly writing articles like this when dreaming of hitting the big time.

    Imagine you've slogged all that time, finally worked your way up to the big leagues, only to discover your big story is 'old man wanders round garden'.

    They pulled it down ages ago. It's just bare wasteland next to the market place parking entrances/exits now (or it was in March when I last drove past).

    :disco: I’m going to have to look at that lovely place in Glasgow again, although I can’t for the life of me remember where we talked about it. I think it was on a particularly mental lockdown day when we were posting about similar things across various threads

    @COB What’s the name of that fabulously grotty derelict club in Glasgow we talked about a while ago which we’re going to reopen as the Moopythèque with darkroom, dwarves and sex dungeon?

    Whenever I go into Bolton (Which is rare, I run with the Westhoughton set these days), I seldom go up that part of town. I was at La Salsa last year and I'm sure Ikon was still standing then.

    We'll add that to the many other patches of wasteland in Bolton with big dreams but no budget. I remember when they were going to build exclusive apartments with a continental dining area next to Lever Chambers. Last I checked, they'd not got round to it.

    It was definitely gone by last August as that's the last time I dropped Mr F at work so went past every morning on my way to work and night on the way to collect him. So I googled it and it came down in October 2017! Can't believe it's 2 and a half years since I watched it reduce bit by bit every day.

    "Appeal after man seen". I like to think that ends with "... and hen party begin terrifying pursuit".
