    I'd count Sheffield as the midlands although I suppose it does have the kind of working class vibe that the North West has. I live in Blackpool, a good 10 minute drive from the town centre, we don't get any of the drunks etc, that the town centre/attractions bring. I think its a nice place to live, there is little gang related crime etc, saying that though I do live in one of the more 'middle' class areas. The only thing that is missing is that there isn't much going on but with Liverpool/Manchester not too far away and there is Preston not too far as well, thats not too big of a concern.
    How many many hands does it take to count the amount of times you've been stabbed by a drug-addled mugger, two or three?

    I love the North West. Much better than London for me.

    I agree with you on Chester. It will be upstaged...

    Preston Tithebarn
    I had a quick browse at this 'Preston Tithebarn Scheme', tbh it just looks like a copycat version of Liverpool One. In classic Preston style, I bet it won't be as successful. Also, what kind of name is 'Tithebarn' - what were they thinking?!

    Good universities, good music, good cities, good sport, good women; what more do you want?
    Sunshine

    In Kent, the average sunshine hours are something like 1750 - a lot more than the national average (1339) and substantially more than most places north of Birmingham.

    I am not sure about what they were thinking. It will be successful, cos the same people who did liverpool 1 are doing the tithebarn. It is near the motorway as well. Also, it has got planning permission. Agreed, It is a copycat version of Liverpool One.

    I am going to try it...

    Tesco is exotic...lol. Tesco is better. Hate Morrrison- everything is so pricey. Asda tends to be chavviest- it is up the road from tesco (only 5-6 minutes away).

    The Co-op is great. It is between Tesco and Mark's and Spencers. It not so chavvy but it is not so classy. Just between.

    Hollyoaks-Still counts...
    I think Tesco's fairly pricey tbh, definitely more pricey than ASDA. I guess if you were one of those housewife types that collect all of the Clubcard points then it could work out cheaper, but meh.

    I agree that ASDA is generally more chavvy, but in my town it definitely seems to be the Morrisons. Which is weird, because they hire security guards there and they don't in ASDA. It's probably because there's a Maccy D's nearby. :/

    Ahh, so all those perma-tanned chavettes that waddle around that part of the world are actually sporting natural tans? I always thought they used sunbeds...



    Srsly though, it's not exactly frickin' Barbados, is it? :teehee:

    :ahee: true

    But 400-750 hours of sunshine difference definitely makes it a bit less grim down south.

    PS: we hate perma-tanned chavettes, too. Perhaps more than you fine Northern chaps.

    Tesco has more choice...the food taste better.

    Strange you mention mcdonalds, tesco is near it yet asda has no mcdonalds and attracts more chavs.

    You might have sunnier weather, but us Northerners have sunshine in our hearts. Unlike you dead-inside, stuck-up, pretentious, Southern tossers. :pierre:

    Although at least we share a mutual disdain of lady chavs.

    Also, I have some experience re: Tesco Vs. Asda Vs. Morrisons. Tescos is actually cheaper than Asda for me when I'm buying exactly the same things, which I found really surprising. I think Morrisons is the preserve of students (WAHEY ) and those who are actually on a very tight budget (actual chavs included) and Asda is the preserve of lower-middle class pseudo-chavs.

    I was very shocked to walk into a Morrisons in Leicester and see security guards. Debenhams, John Lewis - sure - but Morrisons? Who wants to nick anything from Morrisons!? :lolwut:

    Same, I never noticed but I was a kid. lol
    Same, TC is amazing, but arndale - scallies. On the plus side, the Arndale has bigger stores...
    Still go to trafford centre.
    I live Liverpool One, cos it is different.

    When it comes down to shopping, it is just tc all the way.
    Eh?
    TC has way more 'scallies' than the arndale.
    I think the TC lost it's appeal to everyone when the arcade did :p:
    It just doesn't have the buzz of the centre..

    On second thoughts, I won't piss you off for fear of an angry Lancastrain with a grudge against me. I'll probably get knifed or summat behind the Job Centre Plus knowing you lot.

    Pfft, whatever. ASDA will always have a special place in my heard. Tesco can go suck a chode tbh.

    Whoa, what's with all this ASDA hate? In my town, ASDA is the main haunt of the local intellectuals. We gather on the whiskey aisle and discuss whether Katy Perry or Shakira is fitter.

    And I do agree, Morrisons employing security guards is weird. They also tend to be fat and distinctly un-intimidating. I swear one of the ones that works at my local branch is Peter Kay's brother.

    No, no, that's a Kentish female in her natural habitat, partaking in a mating ritual with a Kentish male. It's a phenomenon not often caught on camera.
