Read and Eat for Nowt!

Praise the Lord, our saviour has arrived. No, Manchester Confidential hasn’t swapped online for the good book, but we believe there must have been some divine intervention for the arrival of The North West Enquirer to save us from the drudgery of the MEN and bottom-burping Metro.

Manchester Confidential hails itself as a disciple of the North West Enquirer and with good reason. This publication has been a long time coming. It’s a quality read for the sophisticates of the North West and with the explosion of urbanites and professionals in Manchester, it was about time there was a newspaper to match the North West’s IQ.

It’s got the approach of a national with worthy global news, but bulging with local stories, events, arts, business and sport. Editorially led, you can actually flick through without Shane Ward or equally tiresome C-list celebrities' mugshots dominating 90 percent of the pages. Radical, we know.

Where newspapers like the MEN, or the ‘evil empire’ as Gordo affectionately refers to it, dumb down their copy and insult the intelligence of their readers, The North West Enquirer injects the brain cells with rocket fuel and reassures the reader that journalism covers more then cats up trees and pie eating competitions. We may be northerners but we’re not stupid.

So as we see it, there are decisions to be made. Will you stand firm with us and join the North West’s finest in support of the biggest thing to hit Manchester since the IRA bombing, or sink into early retirement, play puzzles and nod off in front of the…MEN. It’s not difficult is it?

To mark the start of our beautiful friendship with The National Enquirer, (after all if it’s as successful as we think it’s going to be, we want to tag along when they’re handing out the awards) The North West Enquirer are offering six Manchester Confidential readers a year’s free subscription to their publication.

This Competition has now closed: Congratulations to Michael Prior, Ricardo Fransisco, Nicola Howcroft, Julia Powell, Jon Keighren and Ben Waterhouse who all correctly answered the question: Which brand of cheese is used in the ingredients of the £350 slice of cheese on toast....?

The answer, of course, is Creamy Lancashire.

Each of those six winners have bagged a year subscription to the Enquirer along with a £100 restaurant tab to spend at their leisure at either the Yang Sing, Sam’s Chop House, Establishment, Lotus, Mr Thomas’s Chop House and the River Restaurant courtesy of Manchester Confidential.
