What can I say about Shaw that has not already been so accurately written by my fellow wordsmiths? Well, here goes! I have lived is Shaw my entire life.
I have worked on building sites, fenced stolen and counterfeit goods, dealt cocaine and had numerous affairs with the females of this town. I left my girlfriend of over 12 years for a local pig with three future single mothers in the making and an ex council house with a rodent problem.
I lie, steal, take drugs, get into needless fights, stab my friends in the back and I think I maybe a borderline psychopath . All of this in the real world would see me shunned by all and sundry, but not in good old Shaw! Here I fit right in with the **** pond life who call this ****** **** pit home.
Here, a wretched little **** like me can fight, **** other men’s wives and girlfriends, snort coke and behave like a complete animal without so much as causing a single eyelash to flutter!
So if like me, you are an utter [email protected], come to Shaw the ******** of Oldham!
