Smiths guitar legend Johnny Marr says George Osborne should stop patronising northerners with “thick” slogans.
Marr slammed the Chancellor’s “Northern Powerhouse” slogan, branding it patronising to Northern people.
Taking to Twitter, the guitarist said: “Do Cameron and Osborne actually think that people in the North are OK with the term “Northern Powerhouse?”
“Patronising and thick or what?”
