Always makes me laugh that the press call it Croydon, Surrey for 'nice' arcticles & Croydon, South London for the more regular 'bad' news.Spookily, I was born in Croydon too but moved out a bit into proper Surrey when a nipper.
My mum moved out years ago but me dad only left a couple of years back. Moved to Norfolk & now finds Croydon like bloody Beirut" when he goes back!I was up that way last month & didn't think it was that bad."
What winds me up is why it offends you so much and then find it necessary to point it out in a sacastic way.I dont like pink cars, but I dont go up to the owners and tell them. I keep it to myself and let them enjoy their pink car!This makes you a hypocrite.
I did that yesterday. I'll be off tonight for two days in a luxury hotel by myself for work - I got unlucky with vacancies at the cheap ones - so have nothing but long evening baths and early nights...
