I seen a few videos of muslims, pakis rioting and demostrating over there, thats fked up

I guess theres millions of them living over there, Im glad theres not that many over here trying that crap.

I say If they dont like it get the hell out.

We have an expression over here:
America love it or leave it:)

The whites have all but abandoned the cities.
Come on man???
Actually its turning the other way around in Chicago.

Sledge; Have you ever visited Detroit, Flint, Baltimore, Philly, Pittaburg, Richmond?? just to name but a few. Go into google and read their papers. You live close to Detroit.Why dont you spend a day there and see what is happening. (And just hope that you come out alive).. Two weeks ago they had five murders in South Chicago.In your eyes is this what you call turning around? What are you smoking?

Oh yeah those places suck, I wouldnt live thier either, I see your point.
Sorry I was just thinking about Chicago,even though were the murder capitol of the country I still feel safe, I know the places to stay away from, and it really has been improving.

This is one of the places I never go too, The Southside I hate it!

Have you been downtown or Lakeview,Ravenswood, lincoln park neighborhoods latley just to name a few?
The whole northside is practically being rehabbed, I see alot of white ppl moving there.

Too bad the Polish hood is disappearing the mexicans are taking it over:(

Sledge! The only place left in Baltimore that is safe is the old Polish section which we call Canton. People have inflated the price of 150 yr old homes to a price that minorities could not afford. The home that I was born in. My parents paid $2,500.00 for just sold for $635,000.00.

The cops patrol the streets and follow the thugs .They call it racial profiling. FUK UM.. It works

This thread is a complete waste of time. There are far more things to do in London than any other place in England yet there are people who don't even live in London and want to criticise it.

Maybe after their first trip, they saw what a schidt pit it was, and would never go back. London is a Cesspool

Uncontrolled immigration in this country is out of control

I'll repeat again: there are far more things to do in London than anywhere else in England.

London is principally geared towards Tourist hence more to do ... but when you've seen it once you dont need to see it again and to be honest there is things to do in other areas outside London if you know where to look and go :)

I'm sure it's a fabulous place to live if you have tons of money since it's a world class capitol that nearly everyone loves. If you are filthy rich London would be a good choice. It's only a cesspool if you are poor.

Really, how much of England did you visit Wyspy?

yet there are people who don't even live in London and want to criticise it.

The thread isnt about London, the thread if you read it sweety is about England.

but when you've seen it once you dont need to see it again and to be honest there is things to do in other areas outside London if you know where to look and go :)

York? ;0)

Hmm being filthy rich doesnt protect you from being mugged or knifed, in fact it makes you more of a target.

If I were rich and in London I bet I could figure out ways to protect myself. With money all things are made possible.

I don't recognise this England that you refer to `Shelley.

Sure there are places in England where there are issues but it is the same in most Countries.

I've travelled extensively across the UK in my time although there may be one or two places I haven't been too but the majority of places are good. I live in the North West and it is a great place to live.

It's not dirty, it's not that expensive <admittedly house prices are> but I remember when I bought my first home I had to scrimp and save for ages as well as taking on an extra job in order to save for a deposit. It's always been hard for first time buyers.

It was in the news last week that first time buyers are struggling because there aren't enough first time properties or starter homes on the market for them to buy !

It's too easy to single out one place and then state that England is like this.

It is your opinion and you are entitled to it but I can't identify with your comments.

I've spent a lot of time living and working in London and it's the same as any capital City. There's places you don't wander around after dark on your own and you need to be fairly streetwise. I would expect it's the same in any capital City around the World.

Moss Side has always had a reputation, but it hasn't stopped Developers from building very expensive properties on its borders......

North Manchester has it's shady areas too but then most of it is fine as well......it's like that everywhere and not just in the UK.

Most people enjoy a good lifestyle in England I think compared to some countries.

another tit! take her govno to random!

Gosh I wish I had two brothers with lst degrees, Phd's Cd's and Dvd's the list no doubt is endless. ShelleyS you must be so so proud!

As we like to say it's all relative J, you're average family is suffereing and struggling in the UK...Most young couples cant get on the property ladder and more and more houses are being respossessed because of the rise in utiltiy bills, interest rates and general day to day out goings...Why do you think the average family size for an English couple has shrunk from 3 kids in the 1970's to 1 in the 2000's?

I have to say one last thing before I leave this forum. This person speaks through her a..., just look at this quote and make your own opinion! Nothing to do with being over-committed before they took out a mortgage then ShelleyS! Edited

Me neither, she was merely conveying reality. Tough times for the UK, it is a recession remember? ;)

There is a big difference between offence and studpidiy. I am offended by stupidity.

It's a nice city but it's not the best in Europe.

It's congested and that's what I don't like about it. I like the nightlife, the daylife, the shopping, the fact that I can commute right out of there at the end of the day. I like London, but I'm never living there.

For some, yes.

i would agree, i like London a lot.
Yes it is dangerous and over priced and dirty but it's great!.
I don't want to live there but i like to drop in for the theatre and the museums, the Brits stole so much cultural historical artefacts, the museums are very impressive.

Love it or hate it, it is. And i like the cockneys, great bunch of people, who rightfully don't care about what the rest think, why would they?, they got their own stuff to deal with :)

no i looked at it and i can't see what the fuss is about either. as for surviving on £600 a month, it's hypothetically possible if you don't have a mortgage and share a flat/house. there's no chance i will ever get on the property ladder with my salary ha ha, and i'm not really tempted to because why should i work my ass for for 25 years to pay it off and then my kids get it for free! and put me in a home!! fat chance ha ha!

Good shot Justy. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I think so...what do you say?

I think it's pretty logical to conclude that in general, big cities all over the world are usually more of a mess than all the smaller towns out there. I really don't think Manchester or London are any dirtier than Rotterdam or Amsterdam!

:)

As for those of you who dont think England is dirty, Ive travelled enough to see how other European countries look and we are filthy in comparison and should be ashamed!

I don't think so. You should check out your rural areas more often, and you'll see that most people have nothing to be ashamed of.

Id have to say that Irish people (i am one) are as dirty, as a culture, as the rest of the British Isle's.

Especially with Ciggerettes, Chewing Gum and Litter on boozey nights out!
It is disgusting and the recent economic boom, resources were spent on frequent cleanup so as not to see it - it is a pity that the culture of not dropping it in the first place doesnt exist.

I would think UK/IE cities are good looking and on a par with other EU cities. But I feel that we spend more via city councils to clean up after ourselves.

I know places like Paris, Warsaw can be dirty too and as said - all big cities have this problem.

England is cheaper than Ireland for instance and seems more expensive than Poland.
As for Dangerous. Ive lived in the UK & IE for most of my life and would say its no more or less dangerous than any other EU city (having been to my fair share) I think danger is increased when in unfamilar territory and exposing yourself to risk.

Well said Miss W!

Paris is much dirtier than London, crimes worse, the people are ruder and there's sweet fa to do. London has the best underground party scene on the planet.
