I quite forget how wide the Mersey is.
I have been standing talking on it’s banks with Mervyn Kohler of Age UK. It’s Liverpool today for a fringe meeting on what local government can do to support local jobs.
Will Hutton signed my copy of his new book, out just today – Them and Us – on fairness. And “very good luck” from him to all of us.
I close my eyes, to fix in my mind’s eye the Mersey’s reach and span.
