The Government support tag doesn't always have to be applied when referring to Manchester. The city does very well via the private sector, especially through vehicles like Manchester University.

Liverpool get's plenty of EU and Government support that Manchester has never had.

Most Northern cities are held solidly by Labour and hate the Tories. Manchester feels like the only Northern city that has 'moved on' and realised years ago moaning was never going to get you anywhere.

I'm sure Bradford has had a Tory council in recent years which hasn't done it any good in comparison to Labour Leeds.

Well that's true if that's solely Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool, but Newcastle, Hull, Leeds and Sheffield have all endured Lib Dem and/or Tory leadership in the last decade or more.

It was or isn't quite moaning, but Manchester has the advantage of keen and clear political actors like Leese and Bernstein, other prominent big name protagonists like Anthony Wilson, an economic of scale to it's advantage and a rush of civic and cultural impetuses promoting the city for a generation annd a persuasive sway that can charm the media and to a lesser extent the government.

Lucky circumstances that could occur elsewhere, especially Liverpool, in future.

This "Government support" tag is an acrimonious, cut-copied-pasted cliche. It is beginning to sound like a stuck record with them.

And if these "lucky circumstances" ever do occur, all the luck of the Irish to them on this St. Patricks day.

Back to Mipim, I was satisfied with the number of large developments being revealed and progressed compared to last two years, though disappointed there was no killer scheme with true wow factor.
