The people of Bedford and Kempston are not of the same human race as normal people, as they are the result of generational fear and paranoia, like the Stasi in East Germany or the the KGB, like in the fallen Soviet Socialist Republics. They watch you like Hawks, treating you with total suspicion and like a bit piece of s**t at the same time. This happens every time you walk the streets, day and night.
It’s not a place where honest people can that speak their mind, or be a individual. Don’t forget that that Witch hunting is still legal here and one word in the wrong direction, you could be faced with a Lynch Mob long before you can say “When is the next bus out of here?”.
There will always be that climate of fear and apprehension. It has existed for, 21 years or so due to people’s narcissism and self loathing. It’s now at a point where it’s out of control. Where a rude, bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic and sexist, inbred bunch of zombie automatons live their low life, vile and scummy lives, in a twisted world of their own.
The streets of Bedford are a dangerous hazard due to high levels of crime. There have been shootings and murders, in a couple of years or so. The news of this has heightened the fear in the local papers. So it’s generally a roundabout sort of sad existence. Where people are fearful and unhappy as they just exist from day to day.
