Intelligence comes in many forms. Having social intelligence and being mature enough to see someone else's view point may have some merit over your own well worn prejudices is indeed a a form of intelligence Annie but as you don't have that I believe you may be the 'thick' one as you say.
I don't think I'll have the last word as I guess you'll angrily and bitterly try to respond yet again...yawn.
I think a dog may help with your anger issues, they've very calming you know :D

According to the Council, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED in Beech Road Park. All transgressors can expect a call from the appropriate authorities (Dog Catchers?), as I am forwarding this thread to the DOGS NOT ALLOWED enforcement squad in Albert Square. You dirty f***ing tw**s. :mrgreen:

blenkinsop's right, y'know.

I should have used that as a more concrete argument for my anti-dog rant. I stand humbled.

I'd have thought that the website's meaning was that dogs are not allowed in the childrens' play area or games area. Why would the council install dung bins if dogs weren't allowed at all?

I was going to point that glaringly obvious point but it was so obvious I thought they were joking.
No dogs are allowed in the fenced off children's play area. They should ban kids from the dogs area. :wink:

I think we had a conversation about this before but I reckon that's a good idea. If there was any area reserved for dogs in the park then I certainly wouldn't want to take my kids into it and I probably wouldn't be the only one. How about that corner that is served by the gate off Wilton road ? That way the dogs/owners could be totally segregated from everyone else. I imagine we would probably disagree about the size of the dog area vs the size of the non dog area but i like the principle.

Well the way it is now works. Everyone can use the main part and only kids are allowed in the fenced off play area/basketball/football pitch.
In my experience you very often have kids in both areas (especially when it's sunny) but they can choose as there's plenty of room in both. (I was only joking about banning kids, it works fine in practice).
Even if there was a will to change how things are now by the majority (and there isn't) there are no funds to change anything or re-fence it anyway since the Tory cuts.

That's not what I meant. I would like to see dogs kept on leads in any public areas and only allowed off in designated 'dog parks'. A bit like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_park

I agree though, irrespective of ones opinion of the desirability of such a thing, the chances of getting funding are probably minimal.

I believe that in most other public parks in Manchester, (Wythenshawe for instance) dogs are not allowed off the lead in the majority of areas. Of course this is never actually policed.
In our park (generally), people tend to be a little more considerate and responsible with less scary/aggressive dogs.
But as you say there are no funds and if there were to be a rule like this, there certainly wouldn't be the funding or the will to enforce it. The dog control orders (certainly in Chorlton Waterpark) I've never heard of ever being enforced, there's just nobody about or anyone paid to do that.
I'd like to see a reintroduction of dog licences (but this would never happen as it would cost) where you'd have to prove you could look after a dog properly (as many rescue charities insist on).
