I am just about to finish at Leeds. A few people are staying on and I could stay in my house share longer and find a job, my parents want me to as they don't want me back with them. The problem is apart from uni I don't like it here. Apart from a few areas I find it really grim tbh. There are nasty chavs everywhere, the local people are mostly working class and most of the city centre apart from the area around the town hall and the station is an utter eyesore. I really want to move to London tbh. I was sitting in the city centre yesterday and thought it was just total yuck and these two nasty local girls were sitting next to me making nasty disparaging comments about everyone walking past (look at her clothes, look at the state of him etc.). Does anyone agree with me? I just want to leave as soon as I finish.

Why do you have such an aversion to the working class/ the poor?

You really aren't showing your best colours in this thread.
I've been to Leeds a couple of times, I agree that some of the architecture is visually unappealing, but it didn't seem like an awfully city either- definitely nicer than the likes of Northampton.

Isn't that how you are also acting? You should be pals? :confused:

No, Leeds is the height of sophistication.
