The highest-ranked British city in the survey is Manchester, which comes up in 42nd place – three places higher than last year. It is followed by London, which is up one place at number 53.

So perhaps AtW should look at buying in Manc? :rolleyes:

The lowest ranked city on the list is Harare in Zimbabwe with 37.5 points.

Where's the full list?

Let me try again. :rolleyes:

<raises voice and exagerates vowel sounds>

Manchester is 11 places higher than London in that list. 42 places is nothing to crow about, but "It's official, Manchester is better than London".

If one of the characteristics gauged is "Culture and Environment" then frankly I find it hard to believe that Manchester is so highly ranked. Unless one of the main judges is a retarded inbred clog-sparking simpleton with a Lowry fetish.

Ssshhh! Don't tell them. They're supposed to think that filthy air, illegal immigrants stabbing each other, drinking each other's recycled p1ss, pie n liquor, Chas n Dave, second string football teams, the congestion charge, terrorism and paying £500k for a rubbish terraced maisonette is normal.

They'll all be wanting to move up here now.

Just a minor correction so Southerners will understand

You mean one of those mould infested draft funnels with rotten oak beams and rattling windows that southerners call a 'charming period cottage'? F**k that. Oop north they invented stainless steel so you don't have to build houses out of mouldy old trees that bend and crack and offer breeding places for mice. Oop north they have proper industrial design so you can build houses with straight lines so you don't have to shove beermats under the table legs. Oop north they have things like mountains, forests, seaside cliffs and dales so you can get real fresh air within 10 minutes bus ride of the centre of Sheffield or Newcastle. Oh, and oop north you can have all this without mortgaging your life for a quajillion pounds.

Don't tell the southerners though.

Everybody needs somebody to hate, life just wouldn't be the same without it. Luckily for us we have the most natural hate for scousers.

I've lived in both.

They are both as nice or as shit as each other.

The best thing is the ring road so you can drive around it.

Unfortunately for me my major client is the co-op...which is headquartered..in M'cr. :(

I've just returned from 3 days in 'that London' .
We had a great time sightseeing and such, but its lovely to be home, and I know Manchester doesn't have the cleanest air - but my God its better than London. I could taste the pollution all the time I was there :sick

Both cities have their good points, the main thing I love about Manchester - apart from the people and cheaper property prices, is that it isn't full of southerners - well until Media City opens the floodgates.... :o

Have they figured out what they're doing there yet ?! I did a gig there about 10 years ago (Funeral Services) and must be the most disorganised and morbid places I ever did work...

Funny that, when I lived up North, I couldn't wait to get back south to avoid the faux friendliness and inane verbal diarrhoea of Northeners.

If northerners are faking it when they're being freindly, does that mean southerners are faking it when they're being arseholes?

Yes. Its harder to make a friend down south, but when you do they are fast friends, unlike the fly-by-night "mateship" of oop North.
It simply what intelligent people do, they have lower numbers and higher quality of everything, including friends.:wink

Well if you guys stayed in Ireland rather than ******* off to the US or UK then you would have lots of large cities as well.
