The Manchester Guardian
« on: 06:06:40, 23/10/06 »
The Manchester Guardian was founded in Manchester in 1821 by a group of non-conformist businessmen. Its most famous editor, Charles Prestwich Scott, made the Manchester Guardian into a world-famous newspaper
in the 1890s. The paper's name was changed in 1959 to The Guardian. It tends to be read by liberal left wingers .. generally teachers and social workers. Our local library has The Guardian every day but it always looks as though no one reads it as it is always neatly folded. People in the part of the world where I live (Northern Ireland) seem to prefer The Daily Telegraph which is a much more right wing paper.
