'Best place' to work and live in the UK

Recommended Posts

Slough.
 http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-berkshire-41351549

I have never been to Slough. I might be wrong but it looks like a complete dump that's full of your standard English yob, hate filled UKIP/Brexity types.

Is that really the best place in Britain?
Is it a life long dream of yours to go live in Slough?
Do you already live in Slough and want to gloat?

This is the place to share.

Slough

Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!

It isn't fit for humans now, 

There isn't grass to graze a cow. 

Swarm over, Death!

 

Come, bombs and blow to smithereens

Those air -conditioned, bright canteens, 

Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans, 

Tinned minds, tinned breath.

 

Mess up the mess they call a town-

A house for ninety-seven down

And once a week a half a crown 

For twenty years.

 

And get that man with double chin

Who'll always cheat and always win, 

Who washes his repulsive skin 

In women's tears:

 

And smash his desk of polished oak

And smash his hands so used to stroke

And stop his boring dirty joke

And make him yell.

 

But spare the bald young clerks who add

The profits of the stinking cad;

It's not their fault that they are mad, 

They've tasted Hell.

 

It's not their fault they do not know 

The birdsong from the radio, 

It's not their fault they often go 

To Maidenhead

 

And talk of sport and makes of cars

In various bogus-Tudor bars 

And daren't look up and see the stars

But belch instead.

 

In labour-saving homes, with care

Their wives frizz out peroxide hair

And dry it in synthetic air

And paint their nails.

 

Come, friendly bombs and fall on Slough

To get it ready for the plough.

The cabbages are coming now;

The earth exhales

I used to work in a paper merchants in Slough- Wernham Hogg. Wouldn't say it was the best place to work my gaffer was a red neck and his assistant was one of they boring TA types.

 

Nightlife was Decent though- used to go to a place called chasers after work some times. Plus used to get a cracking pie and an ale in the Gardener's arms.

It doesn't say U.K. Maybe it's the best place in England. Maybe it's the best place in Berks :lol:

Your Swindon lot are little slugs. They're little slugs with no personality. 

You should have heard the way Neil was talking about you all! Should have heard what he said about you. Said you were all rubbish.

Cheers for that, only heard the first 2 lines before, and thought it the greatest poem of the 20th century.  It's even better!

Wiki says it's 34.5% White British and one of the most diverse areas in the UK.
