I think they need to relaunch the Morris Minor for the 21st century. It’s not as iconic as the Beetle, Mini or 500 but it is as loveable.

City Centre property crash?

With all the flats (sorry “apartments”) going up in the centre of Manchester over the last few years I’ve been predicting a price crash for a while now. It may now be happening, with a 15-20% drop in values in the last year, according to one property firm. I still don’t have enough money to buy one of the newly cheapened properties, so I’m not going to investigate any further than the MEN story about it. But I know a man who might, and I’ll see if he wants to give deeper analysis.
