Viva Manchesteragas

Manchester has confounded the bookies (ironically enough) and won the bid for the first (and at the moment only) supercasino. There were several reasons the least likely location beat the favourites to scoop the rights to this new attraction, but I’ve heard confidentially the main reason it went to Manchester was because the committee were so impressed with the size and quality of the enormous extension Ariel and his missus (and Hobbes the cat) added to their Mancunian palace.
