Wilson's Treat 
In answer to a November posting on the Cerysmatic message board, the Manchester Evening News reports that "Town hall bosses in Manchester are already set to re-name Whitworth Street West after music legend Tony Wilson."

According to the Manchester AtoZ Street Atlas there are already 3 x Wilson Avenues; 2 x Wilson Roads; 14 x Wilson Streets; Wilson Crescent; Wilson Fold; Wilson Park; Wilson Brow and Wilson Terrace, all within the Greater Manchester conurbation.

Will Manchester City Council follow the lead of their neighbours in Oldham and reflect their fundamental misunderstanding of the 'Wilson Way'? Or will they choose to commemorate their numerous attempts to revoke the Haçienda's licence with 'Wilson! Avenue!'?
