Ashamed of my area! Watch
hmmm lots of welsh sounding places
Merthyr is a mining town is it not? Could be related perhaps?
Not any more, It used to have a huge Iron works but that closed down ages ago. The only working mine near is the one in my village Hirwaun and that's the Tower Collery.
Yeah... sorry thats what I meant hehe maybe the previous industries have had an effect on the population? Bad backs? Asthma? etc...
Lol. I read the whole of that thinking it was about the pubic region.
I would doubt that all of those 16.5% are pretending. Unemployment rates like that can't just be down to mass laziness.
Agreed. Must have been a slow news day or something. So they pick on the easiest targets they can find...those who 'pretend to be ill' in order to obtain benefits. Very courageous. Dontcha just love the tabloids?
It was about 20-25 pages in to the paper.
that blue font gives me a headache...how can anyone read that??
I have just been read the Mirror and I am so ashamed by my area.
The Mirror? You should be!
I usually read something slighty better but by the time I got to the shop it was all that was left!
