So it's true.

Bild Zeitung, german tabloid, printed a picture with a graffiti on a bridge, sayin it was real. Someone found out it was from a graffiti picture generator. Bild replied it really exists: in the internet.

No surprise whatsoever. Terrible educational facilities for your children. Despite my level of qualification I have spent 10 months of my 4 1/2 years post uni unemployed. And even when I was employed there I was extremely underpaid and underutilised.

So when I get Northerners who are working in London saying they hate London and wish they could return home, I always think they are speaking out of their arse. I'd never return.

I was back there this weekend, I forgot just how depressing the place is, and how much it depressed me. It seems so soulless now

depends where oop north they're from. York is gorgeous, for instance. There's also a (cliche fast approaching) better sense of community and values in many smaller northern places, as in scotland. Of course there's better employment dahhhn sahhth, but the attitude here sucks arse.

Provost Harrison

Perhaps, I don't mind York myself. Oxford is a lovely place too but it is a boring place to live (I had the advantage of being a student when I was there - without anything like that - damn, it would be boring).

You know, I was talking with my family about the place when I was home and they all reckon the same thing. My mother is sick of the place, not as friendly as it used to be and she said it felt like it was dead, utterly boring. Same with my sister. My worry is that my nephew has to be educated in the place - it's educational authority is shit beyond belief (no, I didn't go to school in Hull thank christ, I went to school in East Yorkshire).

But in not much over 1 year of moving from Hull I earn nearly 3 times as much as I did there!

The Norks

well obviously- it doesnt take a genius to work out that wages are higher in the south. however you also have to deal with the shitty attitude of southerners. I'm increasingly disillusioned with Britain in general but more specifically the south. 500 people a day are leaving this green and pleasant land. I love Blighty, but it doesn't feel like the country i grew up in any more. AT least the North still has places where you might, shockingly, know your neighbours names.

Provost Harrison
10-08-2005, 00:44:45
Oh don't bet on it, it's the same everywhere. People have shitty, bad attitudes no matter where in the country you go. The only exception may be smaller towns and villages but again, this would be regionally independent.

This reminds me of an old kids joke, I hope it works in english too:

"How do you call Hull inhabitants?"
"By name??? One by one????? But.... they're thousands!!!!!!"

seriously tho, is it Hullers? Hullites?

its a generalisation of course, but whenever i've been north i cant help noticing a generally friendlier attitude which is particularly noticeable in shops when you need service and situations like that. Its also true that a lot of northern towns dont have the through traffic that southern (southe eastern specifically) villages have with commuters and business people moving in and out of the area. They're more settled communities. So to that extent I think my theory has some foundation, but of course, cities are cities, and there are friendly places dahn sarth as well.

This thread has made me so happy!

There is a place worse than Nottingham!

Doooooo

I actually like Nottingham, but that's because I'm the meanest motherfucker in the dale.

(Nottingham is too poor for valleys. Although it has Top Valley. Don't ask me why).

Cruddy
10-08-2005, 19:03:19
1 guess as to why she left.



Nottingham, where the Queen's Medical Centre deals with more gunshot wounds than any other UK city, was ranked as the second worst place to live in the programme presented by property experts Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer.

The Midlands city was also found to have the highest number of burglaries in the UK.



Although most of the shot are treated, so I guess most of them survive.

Japher
10-08-2005, 19:44:52
So not only are these gangsters violent, but they aren't very good shots.

Provost Harrison

Cruddy

Actually the gangsters usually don't end up in the mortuary.

They're future usually lies as support in concrete structures and the like.

Provost Harrison
11-08-2005, 10:38:47
Perhaps some day soon a lot of major constructions in Nottingham will collapse with all those bubbles created where gangsters have rotted :D

I've never had any problems in Bracknell or Nottingham (my ex before DH used to live there in quite a posh area). Its all down to the area you live in or visit. Where I live in Bracknell isn't posh by any stretch of the imagination but it feels safe. I thought Nottingham was lovely, its got a vibrant night life, great shops and some beautiful scenery, but basically if you go looking for a fight or you go into a dodgy area, you get what you expect. You live in Reading, and look what happened there recently with that girl being raped and killed. I think you're more comfortable with it because you know it so well, but Readng is rife with crime (more so than Bracknell according to the police), places like Tilehurst, the junction and the Oxford Road aren't that savoury are they? YOu'll be fine in Nottingham.

Cemetary Junction is no way near as bad as people make it out to be.

Debaser
11-08-2005, 12:59:33
I think it used to be bad when the UpInArms was The Jack of Both Sides, a notorious drug dealing pub, but it's become a lot better in the last 6 or so years. The Police Station, despite it being tiny and unmanned most of the time, has helped a lot too.

Gramercy Riffs
11-08-2005, 13:01:56
Yeah, i've heard very bad things about the Jack of Both Sides.

Nills Lagerbaak
11-08-2005, 13:04:33
My parents used to drink at the jack of both sides. Apparantly I was wheeled in their in a pram (when I was little - just before anyone says something)

It was a drug dealers pub, but very friendly and local at the same time. A bit like the Colly A, but with the friendly local bit.,

King_Ghidra
11-08-2005, 13:12:36
all of this talk is a load of cock

one bad pub or one rape or even one murder don't tell the story of the level of crime in a large town

all large towns have drugs and crime problems, these things are facts of modern life - it might suit the meda to say one place is better or worse than another but you can go to any town in britian and get mugged or raped or killed, it's utterly ridiculous to say 'oh someone said nottingham was rough, guess i'd better stay clear' or suchlike

and let's not forget the whole point of this thread, the rankings of best and worst places to live, was based on education, employment, etc. as well as crime

The Norks
11-08-2005, 13:18:34
thats true, and a lot of violent crimes in urban areas are connected more to gangs and drugs than innocent bystanders.

protein
11-08-2005, 15:04:02
I wouldn't avoid an area for its crime rate. I would avoid an area if it's depressingly bleak and hopeless. I'd rather be in a pretty and stable area than a grim and turbulant one.

Lazarus and the Gimp
11-08-2005, 16:08:10
It depends on the crime. Many attractive rural market towns have hideous levels of violence, but that's just pissed-up kids brawling and easy to avoid.

There's no shithole like a Detroit shithole. Abandoned cars missing tires sitting on blocks in the street, gang members shooting people for thier shoes, half the block burned down because crack heads turns them into crack houses and couldn't remember to not light everything on fire. Yep, Detroit is paradise on Earth.

Nottingham took over from Manchester which was guncrime capital when i was there. Burnt out houses and cars, drive by's, rampant drug use, my neighbourhood (Longsight then Moss Side) wasn't very nice but cheap and I never had any issues

Provost Harrison

Hull is bad for the petty crime but has a relatively low level alongside places like Manchester or Nottingham.
