Middlesbrough - The Worst Place To Live

Recommended Posts

Channel 4 on nimennyt taas Iso-Britannian karmeimmat kaupungit. Näin Boro-näkökulmasta tietysti ihkua, että kerrankin voitetaan jotain, niin monena vuonna oltu top-kympissä tällä listalla ja viimein osui "voitto" kohdalle...




Middlesbrough has won the least-coveted title going and become 2007’s official “worst” place to live in the UK. The exclusive poll was commissioned by Channel 4’s Location, Location: Best and Worst LIVE! programme.


The 20 “worst” places to live 2007:


1. Middlesbrough – North East (6th last year)

2. Hull – Humberside

3. Newham - East London (4th last year)

4. Nottingham – East Midlands (7th last year)

5. Merthyr Tydfil - South Wales (3rd last year)

6. North East Lincolnshire – Eastern England

7. Islington - North London (5th last year)

8. Blaenau Gwent - South Wales (9th last year)

9. Mansfield – East Midlands

10. Knowsley – Merseyside

11. Blackpool – North West

12. Hackney - East London (1ST last year)

13. Stoke-on-Trent – Staffordshire

14. Barking & Dagenham – East London

15. Doncaster – South Yorkshire

Jostain syystä Worst Places -listalla oli itselle paljon tutumpia paikannimiä...


Enihuu, Middlesbrough'n kaupunginjohtaja julisti eilen Channel 4 -boikotin:


"What we have witnessed is nothing short of a brutal, unjustifiable and unacceptable assault on this town by Channel 4.


“This town will continue to hold its head high and it is Channel 4 that should hang its head in shame.


“This is not a case of Location, Location, Location but a clear case of fabrication, fabrication, fabrication.


“I will be personally boycotting Channel 4. I will not be watching any of their programmes. I will refuse to be interviewed by them.”


He added: “I will call on everyone across the North-east to follow suit. This is the greatest outrage and assault on this town in living memory.”
