    So just because you were right you had to be rude about it? I was actually reading the BBC page.
    If you're going to participate in an argument at least get your facts right.

    I wasn't actually starting an argument with you idiot. If you look back at my post I wasn't rude at all.
    That's all I'm saying about this matter.

    Good. Cya then.

    On topic.. Bethnall Green in London was a pretty dire place. It was where my old halls were. A friend was mugged in freshers week by a gang of around 25 teenagers who used to patrol nearby streets at night. It was like a bid for escape trying to get to the tube stop before nightfall, and we never travelled alone.

    To be honest I really didn't enjoy Hull the couple of times I've been.

    However I think the two most awful places I can recall going to are Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe. Jesus. The former is a terrifying netherworld of delapidation and tedium, and the latter is all ****ing roundabouts! I swear to God we drove around Crewe for about six hours trying to find somewhere interesting to go - to no avail. Just roundabouts.

    Are you stupid? Or blind?

    Hull is clearly not on this list. Which is 2006. Hull was on it last year at number one. The evidence that it is not on this years list clearly shows the city has improved out of the top ten.
    Is it really that important? No need to bite mc_hamster's head off!

    No it's not important but is it really that difficult to read a webpage and not quote wrong information repeatedly? If we're gonna spout any old rubbish there isn't much point in a discussion.

    Who's freddy starr? I'm guessing he must be from Hull..

    So if 'Channel 4' decide that X is the worst city in the country, that makes it fact?

    Idiot.

    Anyway, Hull is a complete and utter dump.

    So you've said. What glittering, shining example of an East Yorkshire town are you from then?

    There's a book entitled "Crap Towns" - Hull wins. I've been there and can confirm that it's a pretty smelly place.

    Stornoway in Scotland is so bleh, but paradoxically, it's the place to be on the Western Isles, because the rest of the island is usually dead.

    I'd guess probably somewhere to the east of Glasgow. Deprivation, chavs running around everywhere, junkies, fighting, life expectancies that don't reach 60...

    I seem to remember something saying Slough was the worst town in Britain, but I forget what. Never been myself, but it sounds a bit grim.
