    La Machine is coming

    I noticed today that they've taken out the roundabout at the Birkenhead Tunnel entrance. Completely flattened it. A pretty major piece of work, perhaps in preparation for the arrival of La Machine, a closely-guarded secret but which, rumour has it, is a massive, magnificent mechanical assemblage nearing completion in Cammel Lairds at the moment. Tomorrow, they say, on their website, details of the weekend's events will be revealed.

    Wednesday update 07:39 - a giant 60ft spider has appeared on the side of the soon-to-be-demolished Concourse House tower block on Lime Street. It's breathtaking, according to morning radio reports. BBC website has pictures, and details of the weekend's movements of this creature around the city. La Machine website promises more later.
