@KingMob explain yourself
@zacharius Newcastle upon Tyne, you may know it from the ale, is a small city in the North East of England. At the moment, it's size is a negative, because it means we can't compete economically with Manchester or Sheffield or Leeds, similar kinds of Northern post-industrial cities.
But, a smaller size makes it easier for residents to have a shared experience. My friend is a charismatic guy and we started messing around with clown makeup recently. Maybe that's the basis for a social movement?
