Labour: Creative destruction in Manchester…

From Gary Kent at the UK Labour Conference:

Looking around it’s clear why the Labour Party put away its collective bucket and spade and left the seaside for Manchester. The regeneration of this place is wonderful to behold. It hasn’t escaped the attention of some people that this is partly thanks to the work of the Provos whose Bishopgate Deansgate bomb devastated the city centre ten years ago.

The law of ‘unintended consequences’?
