Dickie_Gr, don't forget one of the best bands Britain has ever had come from Manchester: Elbow they opened (or did they close) the UK Olympics.

At least Manchester has some redeeming features (oh and Coronation Street).

Manchester regularly get a pasting in the toffy nose press, simply due to the fact that there isn't a Michelin star restaurant in the centre.

I don't think people understand the fun loving culture in Manchester, honest fun loving. There's nothing honest about Michelin starred food, it is ridiculously priced for what it is.

But there are at least three Michelin standard restaurants in the city. It's the snobbery of "not London" that stops them being awarded.
