I’m in Manchester doing some work.
It’s good for me to get back to ‘the north’ from time to time. Last time I was actually in Manchester everyone had really baggy jeans (like 28-inch bottoms), Madchester t-shirts and curtain haircuts. I was glad, and not surprised, that times have changed.
I’m always amazed at how many people haven’t really ever been to ‘the north’ – there’s a few in the group that I’m with. Sorry to northerners for the use of inverted commas around ‘the north’, but that what it sounds like when the virgins say it.
