    I suppose I'm proud of myself for forging something for myself out of a pretty bad area. I don't think I'd have the same drive, ambition and work-ethic if I didn't come from Immingham and have to go to the school there, so I think that living in a poor area instills certain qualities within us that those in better areas might have to develop in other ways.

    What's wrong with that? We have the nearby town-to-town banter, but I don't think it's THAT bad. It's deprived, but so are a lot of places?

    I suppose I'm proud of where I came from in comparison to where I am now; I hold no love for the place itself although I realise there are far worse places in the world (I come from Bolton btw)

    A fellow Brummie!

    I'm proud of the city I come from. It has pretty much anything you could ever want (Bullring shopping centre, LG Arena, MASSIVE QE Hospital, Lickey Hills park...) and I love the diversity, one district of Birmingham will be completely different to another district.
    Like London but cheaper? Birmingham has a bad reputation throughout the rest of the UK but really, It's got the nicest people and it has so much diversity in both people and places.

    I used to be till I realised how stupid it was to be proud of being from a place when it wasn't something I did on purpose.

    Another Cov person

    yeah, Coventry has some great history and some great people. There are definitely pretty rough places too though
    Yep its rough in parts has some complete nutjobs, City center getting better though I guess. But i've sit and watched my childhood friends turn into druggys, I've seen 14 year olds on cocaine.

    I get sick of it

    Im not sure proud is the right word. I love Spain and its culture and food, but I wouldnt say it's better than any other country.

    Tunbridge Wells: Meh- a place for retired Major/Colonels, Middle class families (think grammar schools, doctors/lawyers). Pretty safe, but awfully dull (and a worrying immigrant population )

    Depends. I was born in Cornwall, grew up in Scotland but my Grandad's a Yorkshireman so I've picked up quite a few Northernisms. I wouldn't identify myself as Scottish, although having said that I'm making a list of Scottish words to teach my housemates when I go back to uni. I'm just a mongrel really, I've accepted this. I'm not really from anywhere.

    Hmmm, where I was born, where I was raised and where I live are all completely different places!

    I'm not proud of any place, as I had no part in any greatness the location may have. I am, however, honoured to be in London (which I've always considered to be my home).

    Well I was born in Bedford but mainly grew up around Devon and Cornwall. I can't quite say I'm proud... there really isn't much going on around here and I much prefer being elsewhere. People always tell me that once I'm older and am living somewhere more busy that I'll want to move back etc, but I currently can't envisage ever actually wanting to be surrounded by cows/grass in lieu of people.

    Taking a slightly different angle, I've always said that being born and raised in Greater Manchester compared to for instance London, where I now spend quite a bit of time working, is something that I'm really happy about. This is based purely on the cost of living of the 2 cities.

    I hardly know anyone living and working in London (with partners and who both have good jobs) who are able to afford anything like the standard of living that people have (houses & families in particular) in the north west.

    Thanks to Mr Branson I can live up in Manchester and afford a ton more than I could living in London, yet still be in the centre of the capital in 2 hours to do business as and when required.
