Richard Leese has played a huge role in the turning around Manchester. I remember seeing him on Breakfast News when the IRA bomb went off in 1996.

He is also an important lesson for any ambitous little toerags who think the be all and end all is entry into the House of Commons. Anyway he has set up a blog. Check it out here. He is also the man if you need a tyre changing but that is another story….
