This town doesn’t just bore the pants off me, it offends me.

The locals don’t leave the town, have never lived, have no personality. Everything shuts at 5. Houses, charity shops, estate agents, repeat that 6 times and you get the gist….

Back in 2000 or 2001 I recall a woman starving her baby boy to death, widely reported in the national papers, and she was jailed. The same year a woman deliberately sat on her baby and ****** him. The town didn’t give a toss, carried on as normal, no ‘Baby P’ marches as in Yorkshire. Nobody batted an eyelid.

The place at least has a Tesco now, one place to go when you’re about to **** yourself from the despair and boredom. Can’t even jump in front of a train – because the locals protested against having a train station built!!

How grim is your Postcode?

Truly, there is no way to get out if you can’t drive.
