You get a knighthood for:
Ignoring vulnerable youngsters getting abused in Rochdale.
Allowing the city centre to be policed so poorly that private patrols are needed.
Buying art for your office.
Encouraging projects in Africa, not Manchester.
Not having any actual police patrols on the streets of Greater Manchester.
Believing that Greater Manchester is such a safe place for your family to live, you reside elsewhere.
The list could go on, in fact please add to it.
