Rob Liddle, Sunday Times columnist wrote he would rather live in Pyongyang than Brighton, the fount believes Mr Liddle may have a point! Brighton is dirty, smelly, polluted...crime is a big problem...as is alcohol abuse and drugs...every Friday and Saturday night the streets are filled with drunken chavvy yobs creating mayhem...where would you rather live?

Brian the Braindead,

'You've forgotten or are unaware of one other unfavourable aspect of Brighton......David Groom originates from there.'

I made it what it is - one of the coolest places in the UK to live. I now live in the second coolest and am working on improving its standing still further.

Brian the Braindead,

'Not so cool to answer my post within 15 minutes showing you are a permanent pest/presence on this forum.'

So? You seem to post plenty on here, little of which has value, but I don't complain about your presence. I'm quite tolerant of lower forms of life - they are to be pited and indulged.

'Or did you just happen to be browsing Az when my comment appeared, as I've often seen you claim many times before on here?'

Like a lot of people on here, I drop in regularly. It's always nice to see the animals at the zoo. If something takes my fancy then I'll respond to it - you mentioned my name and I responded. If you didn't want me to you should have used some discretion and shut up, shouldn't you?

hi peter,i do not know about your statement "no country can beat UK" i really do believe its where you live and the conditions in your neighbourhood that count,if you live in a set of 6 flats and are surrounded by yobbos and morons,and not high enough on waiting list to transfer yet,it gets a little hard most week-end nights,and getting up to take your dog for a walk having to dodge all the puke!!

This subject is so 'gay'. (A politically-incorrect Kemp Town resident).

There are lots of queens in Kemp Town. Have a gay day, darling.

The problem with living with Pyongyang is that you presumably have to be dedicated to your government and the personality cult of your leaders, and any disloyalty might just incur you and your entire extended family being thrown in the gulag.

Do you want freedom of thought, belief etc., or do you want freedom from crime etc.?

richard do we have complete freedom of thought living in the uk? or do we have freedom of thought but not freedom of speech?

In reply to an earlier post on 3 May 2013 19:11:32 BDT
We have more than the North Koreans probably do. There are certain things (like percieved threats to people, so called "hate speech" and threats of terrorism particularly, though other things like Christians street preachers have got into trouble) that could get you into difficulties with the police or maybe get a public order offence slapped on you. Or at least saying the "wrong" thing at the "wrong" time. There are certain cases where you need a permit to protest, like in and around Parliament. But most of the time you can say what you like and not expect to end up in jail.

Spin says:
stu: I mean it is OK for our citizens to emigrate to other nations but unacceptable for other nations to emigrate to the UK... (We are, after all, intellectually and financially superior. They want us more than we want them)
