    Little Britain's Vicky Pollard is a particularly good representation of Manchester townies. Even down to the pink Kappa
    Well, apart from the fact she doesn't really sound very Mancunian...

    No I was walking to my hench "rugger" friends....
    Yes, I had five....
    I was walking down Ken High at about 10 o'clock this morning....but to be honest I woulnd't of helped me either, I have to admit I did look like a posh prat...!
    hehe, that still sucks though!

    being poor has nothing to do with them being total arsebandits; but you shouldve done something! and if you see someone in the same position you should try to help!

    bloody scumbags !

    Not so much an accent, more a lack of accentuation

    How I speak depends who I'm with. Yeah, I live on a council estate, but it is in Surrey, and I do have some frightfully posh friends.

    London's a curiosity though. More so than other places, the nice areas and *****y areas are all mixed close together. Kensington quickly turns a bit crap.

    Ah Kings Rd is THE WORST! I have had loads of phones nicked, they ride round on their "peds".....a guy got shot the other day. We used to live on the KR but it started getting rough so we moved. The houses are like 10 mil but then you have council estates right next to you, where all the scum live- its proper crap. Pikeys get everywhere, yes EVEN Ken High....Liturally no is safe :rolleyes:

    Minding my own business walking to a friends down Ken High street, pikeys start walking towards me, I look- think in head "oh look pikeys walking towards me...." and carry on walking. They stop I carry on and there it goes a big piece of gob lands SPLAT right on the back of my head....
    Dirty Commoners!
    So didn't you react? Man, your really calm, if somebody did that to me I would turn around and **** them one prefferably with a brick. Anyway, spitting is a nasty habit. Are you sure it was spit, and not some bird **** outta the sky?

    And if he's actually serious, who gives a flying one? Certainly not me (as Ms. Dynamite might say).

    i spose that's true. i was at KR (well, parsons green) 2 wks ago, and i turned a corner and found loadsa council estates, and a notice from the police appealing for info about a kid from an estate who was shot recently.

    it seemd so hard to believe that the Hurlingham club was just on the other side of the wall!
