Slide away

Last time I looked it wasn't April Fool's Day, so presumably the reports about there being plans afoot to install slides in the vicinity of St James' Park aren't just an elaborate hoax. Apparently NE1 have been working with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in developing the plans. You do wonder whether members of the Society have been present to witness the chaos and carnage that is the post-match crowd dispersal - quite how access to slides would improve this is unclear...

Still, at least we've hit the news for daft, frivolous reasons, with the Mackems unwittingly finding themselves at the centre of a political storm over James McClean's ill-advised vaguely pro-IRA tweets. That's one trick ASBO didn't pull.
