I am a proud Mancunian (as the people of Manchester are known), despite the fact I haven't lived there permanently since I left school for university when I was 18 .I chaired an economic advisory group to the Greater Manchester Council, and then served as chair of the Cities Growth Commission, which advocated for the "Northern Powerhouse," a program to link the cities of the British north into a cohesive economic unit.In the past couple of years, Manchester has received much praise for its economic revival, including its position at the geographic heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and I am sure this will continue.The distance from Manchester to the center of any of those other cities is less than 64 kilometers, which is shorter than the London Underground's Central, Piccadilly, or District lines.It is what I often inelegantly call "Man-Sheff-Leeds-Pool" that distinguishes the Northern Powerhouse, and Manchester, which sits at the heart of it, is certainly among the early beneficiaries.I do not claim to understand the world of terrorism, but I do know that those who live in and around Manchester and other cities need to feel part of their community and share its aspirations.Now more than ever, Manchester needs the vision that the Northern Powerhouse provides.
