Video game retailer 'Game" has gone bust! Every local outlet of this large chain is to close. Yet more brown paper windows in Spindles! Yet more people on the dole! 276 stores to close immediately 2,104 more unemployed. This will leave 333 stores still open and employing 2814 workers. Wanna bet how long they will last?
Yet another nail in the Spindles coffin. Or perhaps an opportunity for some astute entrepreneur to step in and open a brand new, much needed, Jewellery Store/ Pawnbrokers / Pound Cosmos.
It won't take much to topple the whole house of cards, especially if another important cornerstone, such as Debenhams were to pull out.
Do the elected cock-polishers in the Tower of Babble care? It appears not. They are obsessed with massaging their egos and pay checks with grandiose pie-in-the-sky plans for the outlying districts (only the Lie-bour held ones of course). Have you noticed the abandonment of the much vaunted 'belt- tightening' budgets with painful cuts and huge savings? Remember last year's talk of 'over 400 redundancies in the new year?
Any of it come to pass yet? Nope! Do you think it will? With elections coming up!!! Not a fucking chance! What do we get almost every day? New initiatives - proposed new deals with developers -
Since the start of the year, Little Jimmy Pudden-Face's band of creeps, misfits and downright barm-pots have done nothing but promise us everything we desire. We're gonna 'spend, spend, spend,' they tell us. No they're not, not, not. They have no cash, cash, cash! After the election you will discover the value of Lie-bour promises!
Never mind! We've got the arrival of Metro-Shite to look forward to. I think - 'Appen -Haven't we?
We've had a reet good idea about that. Seeing as how the 'Richard Knowless Memorial Line,' to Mumps is virtually complete, why don't we say fuck-it to the branch line along Union Street through 'Chicken City?' We could throw up a bridge at Mumps and run trains all the way from Manchester to Rochdale. Mind you, we'd have to scrat about a bit to get back all the bits of Mumps station sold off by the muppets in the great clearance
PS Ruffyed says it would have been easier and cheaper to have concreted over the original track, bought several hundred Sinclair C5's, (ask yer grand-dad), and let everybody do their own thing!
As for recharging them - they could have used Little Jimmy's EV emporium and charging station at Hollinwood.........but that's another story!
