    There's a permanent memorial being built outside Manchester Central as we speak.

    Yeah I know, mentioned it above or on page one, it has took long enough though, remember the council were accused of dragging their feet for years

    It's barm so STFU.
    Disgraceful if it's been removed, the Corn Laws and their impact on ordinary people - which led directly to Peterloo - were a key part of 19th C history when I did O-level back in 1970.

    Did they alter the plans? There was a bit of a stink a few months back when the plan was revealed as it excluded wheel chair users
