But don't forget which city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2008... It will make a big difference to Liverpool...

I wish Liverpool the best of luck on this one - but will it make such a big difference - I doubt it ! For instance which city is the European Capital of Culture for 2005 - or for that matter 2006 and 2007 ? I've absolutelty no idea! Do you get my drift ! Pardon my ignorance - this thing may be done every four years etc - but I just can't name a previous Capital of Culture.

There's a 'Capital' every year and it's mainly awarded to cities who require major regeneration. I know generally not many can name what the current capital is or last years for that matter. I do know that Glasgow held the title in 1990 but that is because I believe Glasgow was the last British city to have it. It made a significant improvement to that city and I think it has had subsequent positive ramifications ever since.
It's success probably depends on how the host city handles it, I'm sure Liverpool will milk it for all its worth and glean maximum brownie points.
It will have benefits for the whole northwest as well, thats why Mcr backed Lpl to get it against tough competition from the favourites---Newcastle.
It was a close race.

Capital of culture, pah. This sort of titular sop is no substitute for proper city government instead of the deliberate divide and rule that keeps places like Liverpool weak.

Another hit TV programme for Manchester! Superb!

Great shot of the derelict building's around Anocats/New Islington.

Seeing those orange and white buses brought back memories!
