  1. Amaechi – the man’s a star.

  2. He is indeed.

    And Grayling is typical Tory scum.

    Hmm – Politician speaks honestly about the new labour created disaster of inner city life in sink esates and then some funding hungry, publicity hungry, part-of-the-problem, rent an anti-tory steps up to perpetuate the nonsense that keeps these people desperate.

    How tediously predictable.

    Vince, and he belongs to party of xenophobia and nationalism.

    Vulpus Rex,
    You are so besoted with Tory dogma that you fail to see that the Tory and Labour and libdem politicians have brought this country to it’s knees along with their greedy banker palls. The Grayling tirade is to take the focus off expence hungry barstards who should have resigned the House of Commons when they were exposed by the Telegraph. The Tory’s have always tried to fog the issue with lies, damn lies and statistics.

  6. Life in Manchester is not all bad. But it will only get worse under a Tory-Scum government

    Wrong Brian – very upset by and determined to do something about the damage caused by Brown is a better description.

    Anti-tory moaning won’t change the fact that they are still a thousand times preferable to the scum at the top of the Labour party.

  8. vulpus – you mean the labour that is undoing the tories homophobic legacy?

  9. Fantastic response from John Amaechi, worded so well and saying exactly what I wanted to when I heard the unhelpful, unkind and hyperbolic comments from Grayling.

    Vulus Rex,
    Your flight is on ‘Gossamer Wings’- enjoy!

  11. John Amaechi is my hero. His measured, evidence based tones are an inspiration.

  12. The Wire is a work of genius. Manchester’s a work in progress. All the same, Grayling is a cock, one more politician more interested in headlines than the truth. . .which is one of the themes in the Wire. Is that apt or what?
