    Not sure I have ever heard of Kirky or Mirfield.. But I'm voting for Kirky on the basis that Basingstoke is alright, just fairly average..

    And King's Lynn struck me as an industrial ****hole of note when I visited on the way from Great Yarmouth.. And in order for you to be upset after leaving Great Yarmouth must take some doing.. Great Yarmouth is one of the worst places ever, bitter and windswept, like Stoke on Trent with sea

    King's Lynn and Basingstoke, simply because I've not heard of the other two!

    Kings Lynn's a cess pit. If you crossbreed chavs with yokels for long enough that's the result.

    Abstain in the second. Basingstoke seemed unremarkable and dunno the other place.

    Has Loughborough been nominated yet? Lived there for 3 months in 2006. That town sure is a festival of nothing.

    Yeah, thought it would be once I saw the picture. I vote for Kirkby, not an area I am hugely familiar with, nonetheless Everton will be playing their soon, reason enough. Abstain in the other.
