I have to say I don’t recognise much in Manchester on the rare occasions when I go back - and what I do recognise has often changed. Finally saw the new look Hacienda - now sadly converted to flats and surrounded by lots of buildings full of glass and chrome. But whilst the city centre is looking sprucer by the visit, it’s not always true of elsewhere in the city.

Oh course you can never say never. Who knows what the future may hold - especially in five years time. But there are times you have to think about that future. And right now, it doesn’t matter what the BBC says or does. I don’t want to go back to Manchester.
