    Far from it. Have you ever been to the UK?
    lol, Manchester is a massively influential city, and is growing at a pace that many other western cities would envy.
    Manchester is known throughout the world for its music, culture and its football team.

    Many of the biggest companies in the UK would envy the annual turnover at Manchester United, the clubs influence goes far beyond the pitch :p:

    Greater Manchester is home to around 2.5million people, it continues to develop at an alarming rate and benefits from its indutrial past. Being one of the greatest cities in the UK, it goes without saying that it is an economic powerhouse.

    And this is coming from someone who lives as close to Manchester as you live to Sheffield...

    Because Manchester isnt as big as London if that's what youre comparing it to, and Birmingham is actually the 2nd biggest city.

    Here, we say "safe!" and "off the hook" but the ones up north just grunt :p:

    :toofunny:

    Nobody in the South says "off the hook" but you! :rofl:

    It varies in the north, in the north yorkshire moors the grunt is probably a realistic possibility, places like Manchester tend to shape a lot of British culture.

    If you want to know anything about Britain, don't ask Ramroff, who appears never to have passed the m25... :confused:
