Some are telling it's Liverpool and I don't believe it cos I had a lovely three years their.
I wud say it's Manchester. I visited it a few times and thought it was pretty grim.

They have made improvements to Manchester in recent years with new developments but the suburbs can be a but grim.
I always thought it was Glasgow. Was there decades ago and it looked pretty sad but it's improved i hear since being nominated as cultural city of Europe (?)

Manchester is like really rough. I flew from they're to ISB a few times, good airport and stuff, but when I was studying in Liverpool and visited the Man city center it was just sad.

No, Swindon. They have enormous qty of roundabouts in their roads and all do wrong turns and go wrong sides there. It's a pure dizasta.

I spent some time in Bradford. City is not bad but what makes it stand out is that there is a very large population of south Asians..

Gee since we have a town in Massachusetts with the same name I knew that.


Let me guess but you come from a town called Bashing or Nohumorton.

Times have changed. Today, South Asian, Chinese, Afghan, Iranian, Somali, Turkish, Kurdish,Nigerian, Kenyan, Congolese, Ugandan, Jamaican, Egyptian, Moroccan, Vietnamese, Syrian, Iraqi. Yemeni, Colombian, Brazilian, Polish, Lithuanian, Kosovar, Romanian..are now attractions in every city in the UK. It is where large numbers of these communities don't exist that are considered boring
