NW forum xmas quiz no. 24b

guess who came up with this piece of tripe from the social centre press release....

Quote:
"The reputation of Manchester's Northern Quarter is of being a vibrant, happening community but a lot of the new additions have been shops with trendy branding. We feel we can widen the spectrum a bit. We want somewhere to represent the energy and ideas of people who think there is more to life than just shopping. There are loads of interesting things going on in Manchester. There always have been. We want to make it easy for people to find them and get involved. We're not just a shop, but a gateway to another world."

activism- the cool alternative to shopping

no it would be only fair in the circumstances. redyred might be a little putoff that beanis isn't quite as working class as he would ideally like to get down the pants of, and beanis might be a bit pissed that hes got a commie in his knickers, but he seems constantly pissed anyway, so probably won't notice.

and it involves no animal abuse so that'll please spike.

they wouldn't touch you with a bargepole, drunken rat hater, probably cause they'd find it difficult to grasp.

i always asumed that 'gateway to another world' was the underpass by the red bricks, but maybe this one leads to naniha. So does this mean our embargo on not publically criticising the socil centre is over then?

i reckon beanis is so deseperate at the moment he'd do anyone (for a pound), and redyreds probably one of these middle class southern jessies pretending to be dead working class and shite, like the others we met at the bookfair tongue

the place is nice, bookshop/library/cafe- and once it gets its events licence its gonna be a useful place for meeting and events. But the process behind setting it up has been a bit shit. Closed working groups, failer to involve anyone beyond a core group til the last moment, lack of transparency. Also some people in te manchester anarchist scene are invloved in the public/voluntery sector funding quaqmire tpye business- that sort of knowledge is useful for dealing with legal stuff but that spills over in to other stuff- for instance in putting up art there theres people that want tight control of it and only allow 'proffessional' artist.

but if you're friends are thinking of doing the best way to get funding is to sleep with someone in a certain group of anarchist millionare philanphopitist. Think lazlo woodbines only a couple of fucks from that group so there'd be a good 'entery point' <snigger>
