Oh I hope not.... I find him utterly irritating and unfunny. There's only so many ego-related nob and sac jokes you can take. He's a bit of an arse, altold. You should have seen his interview with Dawn French the other day, he's actually articulate and I think he's pretty clued up. At first he irri...

The Esso on Manchester Road opens and closes randomly, and the shop is usually fairly rubbish. Getting back to the point, (much as reading the bickering has woken me up on this Monday morning), I would rather see a petrol station that is open all evening, even if it is Tesco, than one that closes f...

1. Barclays Bank - when you finally get to the front of the queue. They lost my change of address form on two separate occasions, so I've had lots of personal letters and a new card and pin sent out to the old address. (I'm not convinced the other banks are much better in Chorlton, from my limited e...

Walking into pubs now is like walking through the wall of smoke on Stars in their Eyes.
(Tonight Matthew, I'm going to be...)
... Except the crowds don't cheer for me when I walk into the pub. (We don't have a Cheers bar in Chorlton.)

King's Ransom might be in the middle of a refit, you should check if you want to go there. I think it was that place

Surely if Didsbury want similar festivals/events to Chorlton, that should be a credit to us here, that they are worth imitating. If the Didders' versions aren't as good, then she might be pleased, but why should it matter? On a related note, I'm looking forward to the Food & Drink festival next ...

Asian Fusion was great the one time I've been. Fast too.

My fave Indian restaurant at the moment is the newest one in Sale though, opposite the town hall. Can't remember the name - has anyone been?

There have been many, many millions of things that science has proved, but religions cannot prove their dogma and therein lies the core of the issue. Depends how you understand the term "prove" - at one point in history, the science of the day "proved" that the Earth was flat, a...

Still not dragged myself up to the Carlton club....must try harder is it an old Polish club?? It's not Polish, but there used to be a number of Polish drinkers there. Just a singing group that rehearse upstairs now. It's historically a snooker and bowling club, but lots of music events go on there ...

Gay people can be homophobic too. I know it doesn't quite make sense, but it does happen.
