Silly, nasty and fun - esp in the way it has wound provincials up!
on 19 October 2013
OK, so this is what it is - a silly, funny, nasty book being horrible about certain towns. Some of its judgements I agree with; some I do not.
However, what I find hilarious is the tetchy reaction by the usual provincials - who inexplicably are always so proud of their miserable northern and chavvy non-places and cultural deserts.
Even funnier as so many of these constantly slag off other towns too, and particularly London and the 'south' (which gets constant abuse from the whingers up north who those in the south of England subsidise massively).
