Joint 9. Bristol
Our first new entry this year in a top 10 that has seen some classic s**t tips fall out of the charts. This ‘cultural hub’ of the west country maybe in the midst of gentrification, but our contubutors have a more, let’s say, realistic view of the place:
The faces of pensioners with black eyes peering off of the front pages isn’t news it’s just sad, ‘beaten for the price of a bag of fish and chips’, was one headline that I remember.
beneath thhe veneer of textbook overdone hipster pretentiousness is the same Bristol of old, where the West Country chavs spew out their own unique interpretation of the English language and the estates surrounding the city are looking more and more like the bad parts of Mogadishu.
the CEX [allagedly] smells like hangover piss mixed with wet dog, and the shops are opening and closing down faster than you can say ‘Bristol is gross’.
