It’s drug crazed inhabitants and influential media and Indie music demigods have been polluting the minds of the younger generations with their evil filth for many years now.
The history of Manchester encompasses its change from a minor Lancastrian township into the pre-eminent industrial metropolis of the United Kingdom and the world. Manchester began expanding “at an astonishing rate” around the turn of the 19th century as part of a process of unplanned urbanisation brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. The transformation took little more than a century.
Having evolved from a Roman castrum in Celtic Britain, many centuries later Manchester was the site of one of the world’s first passenger railway station and many scientific achievements of great importance. Manchester also led the political and economic reform of 19th-century Britain as the vanguard of free trade. The mid-20th century saw a decline in Manchester’s industrial importance, prompting a depression in social and economic conditions.
Even before all that Manchester’s reputation as powerful and influential city for both good and evil largely began with the Hasidic Jews of Manchester and their adoption of the One Whom We All Would One Day Owe So Much: Sir Winston Churchill. Whom they cradled into Labour stronghold politics and ultimate power in the earlier parts of Churchill’s left-wing political career and went on from Manchester and the Hasidic Jews of Manchester’s adopted son in the early parts of the last century to become Britain’s most powerful, finest and most well respected statesman and victorious War Leaders EVER!

[..,]Manchester has been on a provisional list for UNESCO World Heritage City on numerous occasions. However, since the 1996 bombing, local authorities have persisted on a course of economic evolution rather than prioritising the past. This economic evolution is perhaps best illustrated with the 170 metre Beetham Tower which instantly “torpedoed” any possibility of World Heritage City status according to one author. Despite this, areas perceived as internationally important in the Industrial Revolution such as Castlefield and Ancoats have been sympathetically redeveloped […]
[….] The 1950s saw the start of Manchester’s rise as a football superpower. Despite the Munich air disaster, Manchester United F.C. went on to become one of the world’s most famous clubs, rising to a dominance of the English game from the early 1990s onwards.
Mancunian Films had been established by John E. Blakeley in the 1930s as a vehicle for northern comedians such as George Formbyand Frank Randle. The company opened its own studios in Manchester in 1947 and produced a successful sequence of films until Blakeley’s retirement six years later. The studio was sold to the BBC in 1954, the same year that saw the advent of commercial television in the UK. The establishment of Granada Television based in the city attracted much of the production talent from the studios and continued Manchester’s tradition of cultural innovation, often with its trademark social radicalism in its programming.
In 1974, Manchester was split from the county of Lancashire, and the Metropolitan Borough of Manchester was created.
The diversification of the city’s economy helped to cushion the blow of this decline. However, as with many inner-city areas, the growth of car ownership and commuting meant that many people moved from the inner-city and into surrounding suburbs. By 1971 the population of Manchester had declined to 543,868, and by 2001 422,302. [….]
In 2002, the city hosted the XVII Commonwealth Games very successfully, earning praise from many previously sceptical sources. Manchester has twice failed in its bid to host theOlympic Games, losing to Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000.
During the 1980s, the Victoria University of Manchester had somewhat complacently exploited its reputation as one of the leading red brick universities. During the same period, many of those universities established post-war vigorously pursued policies of growth and innovation. The university consequently saw its standing decline and only in the 1990s did it embark on a catch-up programme. In October 2004 the Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST merged to form the University of Manchester, the largest University in the UK with ambitious plans to be one of the world’s leading research intensive universities.
Since the regeneration after the 1996 IRA bomb, and aided by the XVII Commonwealth Games, Manchester’s city centre has changed significantly. Large sections of the city dating from the 1960s have been either demolished and re-developed or modernised with the use of glass and steel; a good example of this transformation is the Manchester Arndale. Many old mills and textile warehouses have been converted into apartments, helping to give the city a much more modern, upmarket look and feel. Some areas, like Hulme, have undergone extensive regeneration programmes and many million-pound lofthouse apartments have since been developed to cater for its growing business community. The 168 metre tall, 47-storey Beetham Tower, completed in 2006, provides the highest residential accommodation in the United Kingdom – the lower 23 floors form the Hilton Hotel, while the upper 24 floors are apartments. The Beetham Tower was originally planned to stand 171 metres in height, but this had to be changed due to local wind conditions.
As of 2011, Manchester and Salford are on a tentative list for UNESCO World Heritage Site status. The proposal centres on the Bridgewater Canal, regarded as the first true canal which helped create the industrial revolution…[Yawn!] Get Lost Manchester! And, SHUT IT u LiLLL’ Coton E-‘ead Tit WanKz!
