Interesting Australian article on Domain, best described as their version of Right Move and online property magazine. It was sent to me by a city planner from Sydney who will be visiting me next year. It's fuelling his eagerness to visit. Nothing in depth, but positive reporting can never be a bad thing.

We get more positive stories from other cities than we do our own, sordid rag...

Our news is extreme....

"End of the World"

or

"Look at this NEW FILM with Will Gompertz"

or

"Child/Baby/Puppy Lovey Dovey" crap.

99% of the viewers must either be OK reading morons or silver foil cave dwellers/Hang wringing hypocritical lefties.

I'm just bitter and despair at the dumbing down and bias.

The bloody news the other night when Printworks was evacuated, cue messages of omg is everyone ok? scary world, stay safe etc. The fire alarm had gone off in the toilets.

The MEN had made no attempt to find out what was happening, it was then picked up by Sky News

Looks like even Gandhi isn't 'woke' enough for this generation.

Quote:
A group of students at the University of Manchester are calling for a statue of Indian independence figure Mahatma Gandhi to be scrapped due to his 'well-documented anti-black racism' and 'complicity in the British Empire's actions in Africa'.

The 9ft statue is set to be unveiled outside Manchester Cathedral on November 25 and is intended to promote peace in the city following the Manchester Arena terror attack in May 2017, which killed 22 people.

Gandhi was a racist and a hindu supremacist. Of course if you want to go off the movies that whitewashed his character then that is your problem.

I would too call for is statue to be removed, and I am someone who has heritage from the Indian subcontinent.

Not sure I agree with revisionism. However, what is of note, is that you seem to have to massacre millions, certainly thousands, to be cast in bronze, is there anywhere in the world where there are statues to people who achieved by merely words? People like Mandela were murders but the ends justify the means.... Northern Island peace deal as an example.

Gorby for removing a totalitarian state, albeit for about 10 years?

Ill just register my profound disagreement with that statement, and then leave it there.

Why? They released murderers, that is a fact. On both sides.

Did I say I disagreed with that and the resultant peace? I will leave that there, as you would say.

Article in the Guardian.
Probably quite a bit to discuss in this one.

https://www.theguardian.com/artandde...ry-skyscrapers

Quote:
‘H
ell upon Earth” is how Friedrich Engels described Manchester’s Angel Meadow. This violent, squalid, disease-ridden district was one of the worst slums the revolutionary German thinker encountered on his tour of Victorian England. Everything about the place, he wrote in 1844, “arouses horror and indignation”.

Visiting today, he might be tempted to use the same words, for very different reasons. On either side of the leafy park, which undulates over the graves of 40,000 Victorian paupers, the bulky concrete frames of new apartment blocks are beginning to rise. They will ultimately become 17- and 22-storey slabs that will in turn be dwarfed by a 41-storey tower, all surrounding the park with a glacial wall of “ultra-sleek urban homes”. And not a single one affordable.
Edit: I would avoid the comments BTL, for a supposed liberal newspaper some of it's readers ain't that liberal.

The article was hysterical clap trap... even the comments reference the historic core being ripped out... erm, nope, not even within 1km of the centre.

Written by a 20year old Guardian Click Bait liar. Why do you live sunshine? Go on tell the readers about your central London flat that is not allowed in Manchester because only Cockney's can get to use mass transit systems.

Toe -rag journo.

I tried to see how much research he had done on council homes in GM, as Manchester is the centre for the region but alas there was none.

An old friend sticking his oar in again.

Quote:
“I’m sick of my city being strip-mined,” says Sam Wheeler, councillor for the Piccadilly ward, where the blocks are sprouting. “If you’re going to trash the nature of the area, but you’re doing it to address the housing crisis, maybe we could have a conversation. But these schemes aren’t even providing the homes Manchester desperately needs.”

Trash the remaining derelict buildings! Luckily for us, he fails to understand basic demographics and his agenda will see him voted out of office... attacking his own constituents, good politics there. Perhaps that is why he is a Councillor, I wonder what his expense submissions look like online, do we know where he lives, as in within his parish?

Just wondering if he has all his ducks in a row.

I believe he lives in East Manchester, which is an area where there are quite a lot of affordable housing being built.
