Manchester City Council

Blessed Council

Today is full Council meeting which starts as always with prayers, on this occasion read by the Bishop of Manchester, who then goes all on to be the first Bishop of Manchester, certainly in living memory, probably ever, to address a formal Council meeting, and probably the first person ever to have a speech to Council reprinted in the papers.

Unusually, as well as the normal business, there are five formal resolutions referred to as Notices of Motion for debate on Manchester pride, interest rates, the Manchester crest, scams and Hope not Hate. Later I meet Mike Davies, the new Chair of Manchester Airport Group, who is busy familiarising himself with a business that is essential to Manchester's economic prospects, and the Town Hall day ends with a meeting of the Reification Board, something I'm not going to elaborate on at this point.

There is no response to “Blessed Council”
