Then again you have North Shields
A magnificent representation of our wonderful cultural values Ė alcoholism, drugs and screaming at your children like itís an episode of Jeremy Kyle outside of the Metro station, while your husband is off purveying the cheap lager at the local offy.
In the centre of Shields, itís difficult to turn a corner without encountering someone who seems to despise their life.
The teenage boys, when they arenít darting about on BMX's and Mini Moto's, nearly colliding with your grandmaís favourite dog, have a permanent scowl fixed to their faces.
They roam around like outlaws, skulking in the shadows, waiting for the ideal moment to strike with amazingly creative insults
