The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round

You come out of the Manchester Arena after a great night watching the legendary Leonard Cohen. Of course the Metrolink normally finishes at 1030, but they’re obviously running a later service. Aren’t they? After all, they wouldn’t leave thousands of people stranded in (very), cold Manchester, would they? That would be really silly. Er, it appears they would. The slinky, blonde eye-candy isn’t happy-I think her tassels are starting to freeze. Luckily for us there’s a late bus back to Bury. As we pass hordes of revellers facing a scramble for taxis, I can’t help but reflect on the joys of an integrated transport system.

Since when was Metrolink part of any integration? (Not that there is much to be part of).

was it as good as the one at the opera house?

Equally good, but different. The Opera House was more intimate, but he managed to really bring atmosphere to the Arena-something that not everyone does. Plus he played even longer at the Arena.
