who said what

'No other Western city so insolently and deliberately frustrates the appetites and ambitions of large numbers of its citizens and, Ken, I think it's your fault.

The surface mess is evidence of a more profound malaise' Stephen Bayley on London.

Observer, 18.1.04

'I never thought I would say this, but there is a sort of gaiety about the town. Like Barcelona or Bilbao, Newcastle is selling itself brilliantly, and it has something to sell' Matthew Parris. Spectator, 17.1.04

'Now that Brookside has finished, perhaps people will see it for what it really is' Liverpool Council conservation officer Glynn Marsden on his city's architectural riches. Sunday Telegraph, 18.1.04

'Its metamorphosis has been nothing less than astonishing.

Even 30 years ago it was a city no southern softie would have visited for pleasure. Now no regional city in Britain, and possibly none in Europe, has a more vibrant cultural life' Richard Morrison on Manchester. The Times, 14.1.04
