Manchester pride

  • Comment

Today programme veteran John Humphrys chaired a splendid event on the renaissance of Manchester through design. (The city had an excellent stand too. ) Humphrysisms included 'Interviewing politicians is like trying to nail custard to the wall'; 'God created economists to make astrologers look credible';

'the first rule of journalism: simplify, then exaggerate.' One of his favourite John Prescott quotes: 'The green belt is one of new Labour's finest achievements - and we're going to build on it.'
