My local town has turned into an absolute dump with 30% of the shops boarded up and nothing but coffee and charity shops and Turkish barbers. The pavements are so uneven three wheelchair users have tipped over recently. Cobbled streets are like driving over a quarry road and the gullies are choked with debris. Junkies huddle together outside the pharmacies for their methadone then get taxis at huge rates to take them home. Even the Pound shop has closed down and tourists have to walk through Baker Street to get to the castle and the pedestrians look like extras from "Thriller". Beggars hassle everyone for money and an endless stream of golf clubs and guitars filter like ants trying to raise a few quid at the tat shop "Cash Converters". Bins are overflowing and ordinary guys scavenge for dog-ends....I need a holiday!!!
