Edinburgh Aberdeen Plymouth Cardiff Hamilton Bradford Reading Stoke-on-Trent Middlesbrough Sheffield 16 PAST AND CONTEMPORARY CONTEXTS It is a matter of remark that so few of these cities in this particular league table are in the South of England which, on many other measures, would emerge as a ‘desirable’ place in which to live, and it is clear that Dr Rogerson’s results are a function of the criteria he adopts for purposes of evaluation and the weighting given to different dimensions of the ‘quality of life’, which do not seem to be supported by any clear social or cultural argument.

One fairly frequent topic, especially for Sheffielders, is the different size of the two conurbations (the population of the Greater Manchester conurbation, according to the 1991 Census, was 2,455,093, whilst the population of the City of Sheffield was only 525,800). 27 Local commonsense talk, however, often goes beyond the fact of size, in its references to the ‘feel’ of the two cities, or Northern cities in general, to discussion of cities as being more or less crowded or spacious. 5). Even more common a topic in popular talk is the weather experienced by different cities across the North, but in Manchester in particular.

Being ‘of the North’, in this sense, has always involved a recognition that one is ‘peripheral’. Richard Burns tided his essay on Sheffield, for example, ‘The City as Not London’ (1991): in a country where so many of the powerful political, economic and social institutions (and the governing and ‘chattering’ classes) are centred on London, being provincial and in the North fundamentally structures and defines one’s life experience. The people of the North, in this respect, constitute an example of what Oskar Negt and Alexander Kluge have recently called a ‘counter-public’ (1993), marginalised from the centres of power, and tending, by virtue of this marginalisation, to develop ‘a sense of solidarity and reciprocity rooted in the experience of marginalization or expropriation’ (Hansen 1993:xxxvi).
