My grandfather lived in a slum in Townhead before they moved to Springburn (then a very nice place).  I think they knocked all the slums down pre 70s, in my time in the city it never had a bad reputation.

No Parliamentary Rd these days.

Ive worked with people in impoverished backgrounds all over the West of Scotland and in particular Govanhill, can honestly say the shite posted by the right wing about it is no where near accurate. There are considerably worse areas of Glasgow than Govanhill.

However travelling around the west with junior football I’ve encountered some absolute shite holes that make Saracen look like Beverly Hills, these tend to be ex-mining towns in Ayrshire, Auchinleck, Dalmellington etc. Airdrie is also an absolute shitehole of a place, parts of west lothian are utterly horrific.

I think with Govanhill a part of the problem is that it is very close to the City Centre and very close to some of the most affluent areas of Glasgow, so it appears far worse as a result. It does deserve it's reputation however. Around 2005 or so I worked between Govanhill and Cathcart, one branch being on Allison St, the other on Aikenhead Rd. The difference between the two was light years despite being a 15 minute walk apart. We would close around 5:30pm and the girls working in Govanhill were not allowed to leave the branch on their own, unless we had booked them a taxi and it was waiting at the door, due to the hassle they would get when waiting on the bus. A lot of the residents were dumping rubbish at the close doors, with couches and mattresses left for weeks on end, and quite a few just threw their rubbish out their windows. The number of folk walking about looking like zombies, trying to fund their habits was horrendous also. That was just the area directly around Allison St however. The rest of it, at the time, was pretty much like every other housing scheme in Glasgow. (Awaiting comments from Teuchters about me already describing every scheme in Glasgow).

A much troubled place is old Govanhill
I counted its blessings and the total was nill
Maybe because it’s MP is Nic’ Sturgeon
To highlight it’s ills critics need little urging
Yet if you look all over Glasgow’s great and large city
You’ll find other places that are just as bad

Don't think I've been in Govanhill before but it must be third world territory if properties sell for £50k despite being so close to the city centre. Hard to believe living in Edinburgh.

Only because of the lack of bowling clubs nearby.

Doesn't really narrow down which Blackburn you are referring to here.

We were amused as school kids to read a book of World War 2 poetry and come across an anonymous soldier's thoughts on being posted to Halkirk, Caithness:

Oh! Fucking Halkirk

 

This fucking town's a fucking cuss,

No fucking trams, no fucking bus,

Nobody cares for fucking us,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

The fucking roads are fucking bad,

The fucking folk are fucking mad,

It makes the brightest fucking sad,

In fucking Halkirk

 

All fucking clouds,all fucking rain,

No fucking kerbs, no fucking drains,

The council's got no fucking brains,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

No fucking sport no fucking games,

No fucking fun, the fucking dames,

Won't even give their fucking names,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

Everything's so fucking dear,

A fucking bob for fucking beer,

And is it good ? no fucking fear,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

The fucking flicks are fucking cold,

The fucking seats are always cold,

You can't get in for fucking gold,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

The fucking dances make you smile,

The fucking band is fucking vile,

It only cramps your fucking style,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

Best fucking place is fucking bed,

With fucking ice on your fucking head,

You might as well be fucking dead,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

No fucking grub no fucking mail,

Just fucking snow and fucking hail,

In anguish deep we fucking wail,

In fucking Halkirk.

 

The fucking pubs are fucking dry,

The fucking barmaid's fucking fly,

With fucking grief we fucking cry,

OH! f**k HALKIRK.
