Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.
Stoke (upon Trent), shocking it hasn't been mentioned yet.
Fairly sure every town in England has been named now, can we move on?
I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
Forever, more than just surviving.
THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND
I thought Bath was nice.
Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
I think it's a bit harsh to nominate suburbs.. All (well most) cities have their good and bad areas, and most of us haven't heard of some of the districts within them..
Sheffield - Thousands of poxy houses crammed onto a hillside surrounded by motorways and disused steelworks.. A bit like Rio de Janeiro without the swanky hotels, the sun and the beach.. Worst place to drive in the UK as well.. The cold just eats into every part of your body.. It's a horrible, claustrophobic city and in my experience the people are more hostile than most in that area when you aren't local.
Bridgwater - A stinking mess of factories and light industry in some of the most pristine countryside imaginable.
Hull - Only one step away from Hell
Camborne/Redruth - What the tourists don't see when they go to Cornwall
Stoke on Trent - Horrible place, Recently visited the university there.. Which is such a godawful place I didn't actually know I was in the University.. Thought I was still on the way in driving through an Industrial complex..
Swindon - Used to be a fairly productive railway center in the heart of England.. And then the 60's came.. The original town is now surrounded by roundabouts, interchanges, industrial estates and crumbling leisure centers. There is no focal point to the mess, no particularly interesting or noteworthy spots in a place of over 100,000 people. The football team are rubbish, which is a shame, as there is nothing else to do there.. It's also the furthest major settlement in England from a beach
Honourable mentions -
Burton upon Trent
Nominate Milton Keynes, yeah...I know it's not that bad, but I can't think of anything about it that is remotely good.

9 more needed.
I nominate Huyton, it's full of people who think they're bigger than the likes of Al Capone, Frank Lucas, Lucky Luciano etc... It makes you wonder what is the young working class of Britain coming to?
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
Don't mean to monopolize this, so discount my selections if you want, but if you are stuck here are some noteworthily poor places to be... Grafted from my own experiences and the Crap Towns website..
