    Lightbulb Cities on the Edge

    The main European project of Liverpool 2008 is Cities on the Edge, featuring five other cities with similar characteristics Naples, Marseilles, Istanbul, Gdansk, Bremen.

    They are all ports, cities with great histories, cities which have battled with their capital cities over many centuries, cities famous for their creativity, humour, distinctiveness, love of football.

    They are also cities which are sometimes considered by their countrymen to be difficult and unruly. Throughout the year there will be a series of collaborations, exchanges, conferences, debates, performances and activities.

    I agree with that about Liverpool.

    Liverpool don't seem to give Into things so easily like other cities like the recent postal strike for example.
