Manchester & the War on Terror – Spies and Spooks

Next tour: No dates will be set until that guy from MI9 stops following me around Manchester. Oh, okay. It’s on Wednesday 10 August 2016 at 2pm.
Meet: Manchester Visitor Information Centre, directly above the secret state cold war nuclear bunker (believe it).
Beware: Guides who may not be guides. Fellow walkers who may not be fellow walkers. Tour locations that aren’t tour locations.
End: Citing diplomatic immunity in a third world banana republic while watching a DVD of Our Man In Havana on an endless loop.
For More Information: Please send an s.a.e. to Mr. John Smith, Whitehall.
