Joint 9. Blackburn
As one of our contributors said, “Where would one start in trying to disassemble the pile of crap known as Blackburn?”. Thankfully others have had a good crack at describing this former mill town in Lancashire. Here’s what they had to say:
if you live here, I’m sorry for you – and if you haven’t ever been here, then stay away.
[the] estates make Syria look calm, you can guarantee if you dare to walk down these downtrodden dogshit ridden estates (mind the needles), you will almost certainly spot the inhabitants walking freely in dressing gowns, fluffy slippers, undoubtedly pregnant, with a fag in their gob going to pick up another free prescription from the overly used clap clinic.
Drug dealers, dole wasters, bums, guttersnipes, fallen women, young slappers and their steroid pumped teenage boyfriends. It’s a f*cking nightmare! A cross between ‘Shameless’ and the Star Wars canteen at best.
