I love MCR, jumping on the bandwagon?

The Cooperative really loves Manchester

Since the English Riots there’s been a campaign which I believe started on Twitter and Facebook by Manchester City Council, to kick start Manchester day. But recently big business has jumped on board.

I’m not saying its all bad. For example Co-operative put up a massive poster recently with a few delays.

But I’m not certain everything I’ve seen is a good idea… Most businesses are simply hanging up posters but without calling out certain company’s, there’s some who are simply cashing in on this… Then again what’s new?
