Blackpool is a cesspit

So no good then? I haven't been to any north side sea side resorts (or even up much of north tbh actually). Have only ever been to Brighton, Hastings and Southend-on-sea on some nice sunny warm days as they are close to London. I thought they weren't bad for a day out on a nice day.
Nope, they're terrible, read the posts in this thread. If you found them enjoyable and had a good time in pleasant company it must be because you're a foreigner, blind to all of this. ;-)

Hastings a bit iffy mind, as is Margate but a day out to be had anyhoo. Canterbury is a cracking weekend, good food and pubs.
 
You're doing pretty well yourself, as you have no idea as to the current temperature here, nor the strength of curry I consumed.
I suggest you give your head a minor wobble before posting pretentious piffle in future.
Quite right - if you like red with curry then you crack on. As the 'expert' on my recent whisky masterclass 'there is only one RIGHT way to enjoy whisky - how YOU like it, be it straight, with water or ice, even with a mixer for some whiskies'.

I've drunk white with mild curries, red with stronger - I prefer wine if I've got a hot chilli on the go. Do what makes you feel good and enjoy what's in your cellar...er...that last bit...ignore that....ok?
 
Blackpool is full of smack rats who didn’t have the ambition to reach Newquay where the sun shines occasionally making their begging thieving and sleeping /dying in doorways a bit easier
 
I work with a lad who started with North Wales Police in Rhyl - pretty much as described here - and in the summer the Scousers come!
 
Blackpool is a bit like Sarfend in Essex where all the Londinistan Councils send their junkies and alkies, chaves and ne'er do wells to live. Blackpool is possibly going the same ways with seedy back street B & B hotels being paid to take in local chavs, mongs, alkies and druggies for somewhere to live.
I went out with a woman from Southend for 4+ years.

Despite working for Goldman Sachs give her three large glasses of wine and she went off like a Katyusha. If she couldn’t find any body builders, Eastern European whores, drug dealers or rugby boys to lash out at (leaving me to iron it out) she would save it up and point it at me on the way back to her London home.

I used to just chin her off, literally take a leftbwhen she took a right, head to Waterloo and fuck off back to the Home Counties, leaving her baffled and walking home alone

Back to the OP

Black pool is honking
 
well if they didn't have coupons in the 70s like they did in the 80s when I got back to Germany myself as a spotty squaddie then he certsinly must have got cheap petrol as I remember our caravan trips always included three or four jerrycans of petrol lobbed in the caravan
they had them in the sixties "BP" which our transport sgt had a nice little fiddle going, because we used them if we were away from camp for our landies and the german garage owners had a nice little agreement where we would cash some and our sarge would get a share. there's nothing new in this world.
 
Regrettably not limited to obvious sh!tholes.
I used to really like Bournemouth (stayed frequently on business, handy for places like Bovington).

Last time I went was earlier this year and the place was full of Eastern Europeans, smoking, gobbing and in several cases begging aggressively, along with the local beggars, it turns out that scumbags come down from London on the train to beg in Bournemouth.

Met up with a mate who lives in the area and we must have been tapped up about 6 times in 400 yards in the town centre. It's times like that I feel the need to carry a flamethrower.

exactly this. worked in a few four/five star hotels on the bar and this is what the people who *really* know tend to say.

It's everywhere. When I'm in the UK ( rarely), it's to Torbay mostly for the last 30 years. Way back then it was really great, even tourist season, pleasant atmosphere, then slowly, and with increasing momentum came the...'Northerners'. I won't be apologist...my best mate is from Salford, bit of a wide boy and some of my best mates in Paignton are Old Skuwel scousers, solid gold lads...but an overwhelming number who turned up were smackheads,dealers, petty criminals and downright psychos. I've never bothered to set today's murder rate for Torbay against the national average but I think I know the answer...That and a local economy which has 80% of residents claiming some sort of benefits, businesses closing down all over and orchestrating it all...an 'autonomous' ( outside Devon County Council) Conservative local government which has recently admitted, quite conveniently, that it is bancrupt. ( Call me prescient, but a couple of years ago there was a banner outside the council offices that proclaimed Change Is In Our Hands and I joked Yeah, because you've wasted all the fucking paper money...). I'd never thought about outside influences, but what another poster said about people being shunted to Rhyll...hmmm maybe something similar...fly tipping human rubbish basically.

In the mid-70s, I was led to believe (and it turned out to be true) by the old sweats that when the regiment got back to Germany in 77, we'd have petrol coupons, like there had been for years until we'd moved from Falling Barstool to Omagh in 74.

After transferring, I sold petrol coupons daily until I left BAOR in 1985.
 
I think Blackpool is symbolised quite nicely by the "Funny Boyz" kebab house, which allegedly served up the minced up remnants of a teenage chav in it's kebabs.

Missing girl's body 'put into kebab'

"Soss, salad?"
Did they get done by trading standards for actually having meat in their kebabs, against expected norms ?
 
I have friends who moved to Blackpool years ago,go up there now and again.There is a nice park there and the Tower Ballroom is worth looking in,but the rest of the place is awful,especially the Golden Mile. Lytham is OK.

You mean Stanley Park...my granddad, WWI vet, was a parkie there before he died in a motorbike accident...before I was born. Great park, used to like hiring a rowing boat there...
