Dartford

Anybody got a good word to say about Dartford?
Went there today to pick-up a parcel.
Oh! what a dump! Thought towns like that were up the NE or NW!
It had of course a lustrous past. In the area was Fraser & Chalmers, Vickers: J & E Hall and not forgetting the Dartford Warbler! All now long gone!

Anybody got a good word?

Sorry rogerxd, did'nt mean to offend those living in the NE & NW, but it's just that down here, there is a notion that above the Watford Gap things tend to go downhill a little.

But it's not so. There are certainly depressed areas down South, which are not usually shown on TV & the newspapers. I would say mostly along the Thames estuary.

But for political reasons, no doubt, there will not be much cash available for regeneration down South! We have it soooo good!

Hasn't it suffered like many UK towns due to the opening of a big out of town shooping centre?

Don't know what's worse, being accused of being a Midlander or living in the slums of NW

That really, really horny girlfriend I had in 2003-2004 went to university in Hull. I wonder if that's what caused it.
