Re: Manchester Tourism dealt crushing blow

Lived there and in Salford for a decade.
Now I live here.
Both places are equally racist, just in different ways. I think that in the Brits are more open about their racism, I remember a delightful conversation I had with one Salfordian (obviously of Irish decent, her Irish mother was there too) complaining about bloody forigners thinking they can put their pushchairs in the wheelchair space when that's where her mother wants to sit, What's her mother meant to do? stand? (I pointed out that she could let her mum sit on the seat she had) And what about the shopping bags? where are they meant to go? (in the space infront of the seat she had? in the little metal shelf thing that everyone puts their bags on next to her seat?).
Here they just tut, stare and grumble, which is harder to take a stand against. btw, the main reason the woman was peed off was because Manchester City Centre had banned drinking in the street on St George's Day after some racist attacks the previous year.
I miss the UK, sometimes.

Try going back to Preston Lancs, when you moved to Switzerland. Not only a traitor but a "who the bloody hell does she think she is"!
