Could I have a statement, please? meloxicam recall 2019 Blackpool, Manchester and indeed the North generally have a tougher time of it. Councils struggle to meet the needs of an often poor and deprived population. Their industrial outlook was desperate for decades and the recent regeneration of major cities such as Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester can’t mask the survival of pockets of real deprivation. Unemployment and low-skilled jobs don’t yield high incomes and steady council tax. With the same priorities – the care of their citizens – the cities of the North have much harder choices to make.
