I read it.
Seems placing the casino in the POOREST area of Manchester was better than Blackpool or the Dome, as it's location puts it in easy reach of 3 Million potential gamblers .
Surely, it would have been better to place it where it was easily accessed by a lot of RICH people
Manchester needs to ensure the motorway network goes straight to it, and easily - I can't imagine high rollers wanting to drive through deprived parts of Manchester in their BMW's and Rollers to get there, let alone PARK!
This is *fantastic* news...
Manchester have always done things better than anywhere else... Football, Music... Now casino's!
East Manchester in January, right next to the City ground, on the outskirts of Openshaw and Beswick (think "Shameless") - it'll be just like Vegas
Apart from the football bit actually.
Arsenal rock on that one!
I wonder how long it will be before the licencing procedures are relaxed and Blackpool and the Dome get permission as well?
BBC Interviewee said:I have always wanted to visit Las Vegas but now it will be on my doorstep
Yeah 1-0 and 2-1 says he's right
That's like saying "I don't need to support Arsenal now, someone gave me a Spurs season ticket"
Lords scupper super-casino plan
Peers have rejected a decision to build the UK's first super-casino in Manchester by just three votes....
