    Sticks in the throat that comment doesn't it.

    Isn't the actual situation that rich people are something like 64% richer since austerity?

    All in it together my arse!!!

    Manchester is a shithole. The walk from Piccadilly into the centre is as bad as anywhere in the country. There is a spice epidemic in the city. Professional beggars lining the streets alongside the genuine homeless and spice addicts.
    The city council so up its own arse talking about how great Manchester is doesn't bother to give the streets the deep clean they desperately need.

    You just wait until he gets on to the negatives. That was just the plus points.

    It's quite funny really, despite all the trouble and strife the great City of Liverpool has had
    To contend with, it always fights back.
    However hard they try "and they do try" unfortunately for them they have always been 'and
    Will always be in the shadow of Liverpool.

    In a strange way, yes it might be a decent visit for a city break (though personally think Liverpool is far more interesting). It does have half decent nightlife and some good music venues, but living nearby you tend to focus on more what it's like day to day and it's a dump.
