I was enchanted as a child by the fairground wonderland of Blackers. The promenade, the pleasure beach, the trams and the illuminations. Now even the thought of visiting this 10th rate smack-scrote infested, grotty, STD happy shi@hole, makes me rather have root canal work done!
I think Blackers has a tolerance limit of 4 hours, then you start to have the joy for life sucked out of you (as if by a Dementor from the Potter films), as you absorb more tackiness in your slowly disintegrating brain.
From the south shore up to the north pier is Chavtown. It’s no wonder you can’t even wonder around the pleasure beach anymore. Most of the pubs have bouncers on them as soon as they open. Go in the arcades and you’re checking your own personal space for pondlife persons of the toothless kind.
The shops design is clearly still stuck in the 60s. The few modern ones are for the chav/micro chav and any other offshoot of chav subculture that spawns on Blackpool’s sorry streets. Security everywhere there too.
The pleasure beach is now a fortress and you can’t gawp at what you can or wont go on, can’t see any pleasure in that. When I used to see that laughing clown in that glass box I used to think..ha! a laughing clown that’s soo funny! Now it’s, shut up you annoying c@@@!
I Don’t really wish to walk on excrement beach nor paddle, let alone swim in that cheap coffee coloured bog-log bobbing sea. Then walk on the pier…what the f@@k for? Walk down the promenade, then walk on another pier? Are you taking the p@@s? Then walk along the front for an hour… this is fun? f@@k that! OK, let’s go up the tower in a lift with folk wearing Eau de BO. Or Eau de s@@t! Even at 120 meters up, there’s no escape!
Maybe I’m being unfair now I’m older. That being said.
…nope it’s a big pile of s@@t by the sea,surrounded by even more piles of s@@t!
