Yes, but as you can imagine Joanne, Old Kemp and the like would be down at Liverpool One and at the arena with the mob trying to stop all that too no doubt had it not already come to pass as a key Liverpool development, screaming about social justice.

Kemp want's to crash Waterloo Dock, Peel and Everton...Christ knows why anymore.
Attention seeking nobody who just has to be in the spotlight.
Spoilt brat, maybe, bullied at school, definitely.
Only logical conclusion.

Not an engineer but apart from the road whats taken them so long....just seem to have been moving earth from one place to another. I am afraid the cost over runs and delays will probably sound the death knell for the new cruise liner terminal .....it’s taken nearly a decade already and they havent stuck a spade in the ground yet and as it was one of Joes few big ideas my guess it will be kicked into touch...the Libs and Greens don’t want it on environmental grounds anyway.

New Isle Of Man Terminal Liverpool

Little video showing the progress of the new Isle of Man Terminal in Liverpool. The land is still being prepped, but you can see the progress. Much work is still ongoing with machinery on site.
they had to strengthen the river wall . thats what probably taking extra time.

cant help but think they missed a trick here they could have relocated the wheel from Albert Dock and made it look like the Laxey Wheel - it would have given the Waterloo Dock nimbys something to look at ;)
Laxey wheel, the Lady Isabella although it's a water pump...

Some dockside fountains perhaps 🤔

The Stanley family were asked by the King to help take control. They were descended from Norman Nobility and were rulers in the Isle of Man.


As far back as 1252 there has been a townhouse on the Liverpool shore. Sir John Stanley pulled down the old house in 1406 and built the first Tower known as the Tower of Liverpool. This was used as an embarkation base for their property in the Isle of Man. The Tower stood at the shore end of Water Street.

After a century of disputed ownership between the English and the Scots the Island was 'given', by Henry IV, to Sir John Stanley in 1405 on condition 'of rendering to our heirs the future Kings of England, two falcons on the days of their coronation'.
