The Mancunian Way: Silly season

Reading now: 297

In the newspaper trade the summer months are known as silly season. It’s the time of year when, with Parliament not sitting and everyone on holiday, the papers tend to be filled with fluff.

But this summer is something else. Over the next three months we’ll have a General Election with the likelihood of a new Government, the European Championships and the Olympics.

Add into the mix the usual summer fare of comings and goings at United and City and it promises to be a feast of news. And, of course, the M.E.N.

will be there every step of the way. Our election coverage is already well underway. By the time the polls open we’ll have been out on the streets of every constituency in Greater Manchester talking to voters about the issues that matter to them, we’ll be analysing the key battlegrounds, putting the manifestos under the microscope and grilling the candidates.
