Melbourne Gangland Tours - a good idea gets Moranned

Disappointing to read that the mysterious "Mick from Ringwood" has shelved his MGT idea.

The tour also would have included Cross Keys Reserve in Essendon where Moran's son Jason and his minder Pasquale Barbaro were killed, and La Porcella restaurant in Carlton where alleged underworld assassin Andrew "Benji" Veniamin met his violent end.

If only Lewis or Benji or Alfonse or Graham were able to lead it...
