Politics and hotpot - next week on the old Coronation Street set

This coming week sees Manchester hosting the Labour party conference. 

Kevin Maguire, associate editor of the Daily Mirror, reports in political magazine The New Statesman that on Tuesday 23 September, "... there’ll be a battle of the parties... The Sun is throwing a bash at the same time as the Mirror’s hot ticket on the old Coronation Street set, where the paper’s editor, Peter Willis, will pull pints in the Rovers Return. Miliband is expected at the Mirror extravaganza. Liverpool Labour MPs will be waiting, should he pop into the Sun’s, after that photo with a promotional copy."

Coronation Street has been used by politicians to win hearts and minds - and votes.  Blair and Thatcher have been on the Corrie set for photocalls in the past. And politics has of course played its part in Coronation Street storylines.
