Haven't a clue, maybe there isn't one, maybe they are fearful that their country will one day end up as a multicultural hell hole like so many European states.  :-\

Bulgaria 0  England 6

England defender Tyrone Mings says he could hear the racist abuse "as clear as day" but "everybody made the decision" to continue the Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia.
Play was halted twice in the first halfbecause of abuse from supporters.
In line with Uefa protocol, England had the option to walk off the pitch but played the full 90 minutes and won 6-0.
"I am very proud of everyone for the decisions we made," Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live after his England debut.

A plan to take Greater Manchester's bus network back under public control could be given the green light next year.
London-style system] has been proposed which would see bus operators bidding to run services on a franchise basis.
The plans have now been put out for a three-month public consultation by Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
Re-regulating the network would result in a "massive" and "unnecessary" 134m cost to taxpayers, bus companies have warned.

The answer to the question is no she doesn't care about the electorate,  she cares about keeping her snout in the Westminster trough, the people should stick with Mr Brady, he seems like a decent bloke to me, as for her stopping Brexit, if I remember correctly an opportunity to do such a thing wasn't on the ballot paper either.

She changed to Lib/'dems' as Change UK had no chance of getting elected, her reason to stop Brexit - opportunism, she's obviously been scratching around for her best chance of securing a job next time round - does she really care about the people of Altrincham/Sale?

The economy of Manchester is among the largest in England. Manchester is a city and metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester. It lies within the United Kingdom's second-most populous urban area, with a population of 2.55 million.[1] Manchester's commercial centre is in Manchester city centre, focused on Spinningfields, Mosley Street, Deansgate, King Street and Piccadilly Gardens.

Historically, the world's first industrialised city,[2] the region was once in economic and population decline.[3] In 2012 Greater Manchester South, which includes the cities of Manchester and Salford and three other metropolitan boroughs, was the largest NUTS3 area outside London in economic terms, and growth was 3.8% vs the Core Cities average of 2%.[4]

Between 2002 and 2012 Greater Manchester South grew 45% vs. national growth of 44%.[5] Meanwhile, the 2011 census also showed that Manchester was the fastest growing city in the UK in terms of population.[6][7] Manchester is also a city of contrast, where some of the UK's most deprived and most affluent neighbourhoods can be found.[8][9] According to the 2010 Indices of Multiple Deprivation Manchester is the 4th most deprived local authority in England.[10] On the other hand, Greater Manchester is home to more multi-millionaires than anywhere outside London, with the City of Manchester taking up most of the tally.[11] In 2013 Manchester was ranked 6th in the UK for quality of life, according to a rating of the UK's 12 largest cities.[12]

Manchester is considered to be a 'beta' global city, rated as the second most globally influential city in the UK after London.[13] The region is now an economic knowledge-led centre, with research and enterprise clustered around the University of Manchester,[14] where research ranked as the third most powerful in the UK behind Cambridge and Oxford.[15] Typical industry areas include: digital and creative, financial, legal and business services, biotechnology, advanced manufacturing, environmental technologies, tourism, global sports brands, media and real estate. The city is also a key location for many foreign owned companies and headquarters, and almost half of the Northwest's Top 500 businesses,.[16]Manchester City Council also plays a uniquely active role in business, where it owns key infrastructures such as a 35.5% stake in Manchester Airports Group, which owns other UK airports such as London Stansted Airport, and is the owner of the City of Manchester Stadium, home to one of the world's highest earning football clubs.[17]
