My beloved grew up in Wythenshawe and her parents still live there. She maintains it's a tough but solid part of Manchester, I claim it's soft and is really in leafy Cheshire rather than real Manchester. I maintain that Gorton Manchester, where I grew up, is much tougher. We both agree that both places have problems but they are basically sound.
Looks like Duchess Fergie is off to patronise the peasants of Wythenshawe on telly tonight though, so others can decide how grim it is, or isn't. Having seen the trailers it looks sadly like it will be condescending, stereotypical bullshit in the extreme.
As it's next to Manchester Airport why not visit for your next holiday. I know a lovely little council house with a spare bedroom in Woodhouse Park, then you can make your own mind up.
Bet the snooty cow won't be venturing into Gorton for Part II!
