About thirty years ago, Kirklees Council published a streetmap of its area. On the back cover was an advert for a firm (Brook Motors?) superimposed on a tilted globe so that Huddersfield was right at the centre hub of the world surface.

:D


That's cos it is ;)

I'd move to Australia if I came from Lancashire.

Obviously I'd have to steal a loaf of bread first.

Goldcoaster - there was a book out a few years ago, called "###### Towns", might be worth a quick glance before you decide (I'd take it with a pinch of salt though as it was a semi-pi$$ take)......

Note Hull's ranking!!

If you're in the business of hiring/firing it's prob worth bearing in mind that most of the UK (bar London) is financially bolloxed so if you're in London you may well be doing some hiring but everywhere else it's likely that you'd be drafted in to do the firing

The place you want to move to has to be Cumbria (west Cumbria), the beautiful lake district on your doorstep, it is also a rugby league hot spot, albeit no super league club but we've managed with out a super league club for 15 years now but the game still thrives, ive also heard that sellafield are employing. What more could you ask for, nuclear waste, natural beauty (as in the lakes) :o :lol: , and rugby league.... :D

Jeeez, just read through this thread in its entirety and it sounds like the dialogue of Blind sodding date.

"Pick me, me, me...."

Don't knock it, you can get four pints and still have change left over from a fiver in Fleetwood.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
