stoke on trent is definitely up on the list-probably not the worst but still a vile place to live.

I would say wherever the ethinc minorities are at their highest percentage. This isn't a racist comment, just a lot of immigrants tend to be rather poor and go for less affluent areas.
If we were in a country where there were poor White immigrants, I'd say the same.

Hull is a well known dive, as is Sunderland and Middlesbrough - yet they are all homogenous white.

Does anyone else come from the hell hole that is the Boro? I've never met anyone on here who does

Kirton-in-Lindsey (North Lincs/S Yorks.)

So bad that it was considered inhumane to put asylum seekers there.

I'm originally from County Durham but have been to Boro a lot; while I'll agree that it doesn't deserve the reputation it has (and I personally believe it is far from worst place to live in the whole country) it isn't the nicest of areas but I have seen worse. I have friends who went to Teesside University and I thought the campus was quite nice.

I live in Rotherham and it's not THAT bad

The town centre is appalling though.
I live at the side of Rotherham.....I can think of around 4 nice places and around 30 bad!

The whole city isn't a dive. The worst areas will have high percentages of ethnic minorities.

You put Milton Keynes on a par with Luton and Tower Hamlets? :eek:

I've lived in MK my whole life, certain areas can get rough, but's it's the same in any large town, generally it's a good place for young people, especially in the centre/ shopping centre.

Your opinion

My uncle lives in Boro - he tends to visit us

The countryside around it is nice though.

:giggle: "no soul" lol.

Well, the place is only 20 years old, still first-generational, you have to give it a chance to develop some character/ history, and the unique perspective that it was a "concept" town

Anywhere in England south of Birmingham. It's souless, bland and full of egg-chasing, fox hunting, tory supporting scum who think they're better than everybody else. - And I should know I was born and grew up here.
