    Just a general question here, don't really know why im asking it

    I'm proud of where I come from but my home-town is basically a sh*t-hole The highest paid job is working at the steelworkers or hospital and these will close it . It's full of chavs and mainly council estates, in fact there is show on tonight in my hometown called Skint on Channel 4 :P

    Can't want to leave but proud of where I come from

    ------
    Realised this is the wrong place could an admin move this to the right place please sorry.

    I'm from Istanbul, don't like it here but not ashamed of it either. Pride would be an overstatement.
    Don't really care anymore either since I'll be moving to Newcastle in September. :awesome:

    It's not where you come from it's where you're going that matters.

    Yeah, I think Istanbul beats Newcastle tbh. Alright Newcastle might be cleaner, less crime, less poverty etc. but Istanbul is levels above when it comes to history culture etc. Anyway, yeah I'm quite proud of Glasgow I suppose. Has it's problems but is good for a medium city.

    Yorkshire: Definitely.
    Us Yorkshire folk are always reet proud of where we come from.
    Although its sort of mixed for Guiseley (my hometown), it used to be run down and chav infested, but over the past couple of years its improved quite a bit.

    Oh, and I'll always be proud to be from Leeds (home city)

    I'm from Stoke-on-Trent and it's pretty dire. Full of chavs and people who are content with a mediocre life. I'm planning to up sticks and move to Edinburgh the first chance I get as my fiancé is from there originally and it's just an amazing place.

    My home suburb? Yes - it's leafy, safe and has some really lovely people and some great amenities right on the doorstep. There are some great views of beautiful rural North Yorkshire from here, too. :yep:

    My home town (Middlesbrough)? Partly. It's ugly and (judging from reports, anyway) rough in many places, but it's got some pleasant green spaces, some nice down-to-earth people and a decent variety of stuff to do for a town of its size. It's definitely not as pretty and cosmopolitan as, say, nearby Newcastle and York, though.
