City cen­tre is noth­ing for us to be proud of

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

I COULD not agree more with ‘Puz­zled, Beswick’ (View­points, Novem­ber 7).

As a Man­cu­nian, I am also puz­zled at the praise of Manch­ester.

Do they never walk through Pic­cadilly Gar­dens (although it ceased to be ‘gar­dens’ long ago) and see the muddy grass, the drug deal­ers, the al­co­holics, the rub­bish?

And don’t get me started on that hor­ren­dous wall – at least they pulled the Ber­lin Wall down!

The walk into Manch­ester from Beswick and An­coats is noth­ing but street after street full of rub­bish, over­grown weeds and trees spilling onto pave­ments.

Why do a lot of other cities here and abroad seem to be so much cleaner?

The Labour coun­cil has been in charge of this city for decades.

For the city cen­tre to still look so scruffy and mis­er­able is a dis­grace, not to men­tion the sur­round­ing streets.

I have long since given up on it look­ing any bet­ter. An­other mug­gins coun­cil tax payer
