Why are our towns so fucking shit?
They're the most depressing fucking places on this planet.
Basically, villages are great because of community and rural charm and cities are okay because there are jobs, services and access to leisure.
But Towns? Towns are where the British suburb and the urban wasteland exists - they're nothing but commuter's homes at best, usually surrounded by the council housed or brick walled closets from 150 years whose only hopes are minimum wage services work.
They're run down blotches of grey because there are no jobs pushing funds into councils and consumer spending, so there's no reinvigoration or investment, and so they largely exist with one purpose - to continue existing.
I currently live in Leatherhead (small town), and it isn't too bad. Have a
>Chicken express type place
>Genral fast food grill
>Small shopping centre
>Large Leisure centre
>Local football team with stadium
This is a small Town, don't forget. Actual town are places like Kingston, Bexleyheath, Sutton, Sheerness, Medway etc, and they're even better
Pic related is how our towns would look if they were still built with aristocratic taste, and not with intellectual/leftist/nihilistic taste.
Most of Surrey is basically greater London now though, but that hasn't turned into London because of greenbelt laws and high property prices. I wouldn't say Surrey 'towns' are exactly what OP is talking about.
Money, size, self-sustaining jobs markets and opportunities.
Cities themselves, as they are today, aren't a good thing, let it be known. It is just that their major problems, usually caused by the consumption of surrounding towns and villages and creation of housing estates, are ameliorated by sheer size creating a pull factor for investment, and with size comes more likely access to services and leisure.
I make a point of this because many cities are very townish in nature and lack identity, culture and community, but it is the benefits and outcomes of size and money that make living in cities bearable.
Britain was the first urbanist european nation, part as a result of land topography, but also generally how we developed, especially considering the industrial revolution and the build up to it lead to more focus on "efficient" housing built by industrialists.
Because we're far more appreciative when we actually get some sun.
Plus we live in a country that (apart from a few floods about 1cm high in N England) is isolated from extreme heat, winters, wind, earthquakes and crazy man eating plants and animals.
All wee have is a wee bitty rain to whinge about
My town is actually really peaceful and friendly, surrounded by countryside in the west midlands.
Still it's boring as fuck and the only thing I do here is work, gym and video game.
I have to travel abroad for muh hobbies.
villages = inhabitated by Scotts, Irish and Welsh ARYANs
towns = inhabitated by beady-eyed ANGLO BLOOD
cities = inhabitated by Africans and Muslims
Here's where I live.
It was and is still actually being used to film parts of Inverness for the TV series"outlander" even though it's actually 130 miles from it.
Not really, but I'm trying to get a job in one of the stores there since it's walking distance. Get a great view of the bridge from here, too.
Looks pretty good.
I used to live in Bristol and they used areas of that city as a stand-in for London in a Sherlock episode.
Pic related, Portland Square, Bristol, being used as the set for where Watson gets burnt alive, or something.
Portland Sq is actually in St Pauls, a shitty part of the city, in the East where all the Caribbeans settled. Gangs be there.
If you got rid of St Pauls the violent crime rate of Bristol would probably plummet.
Erith. Mostly niggers.
Moving here as soon as I can afford to.
One problem we have is with high streets.
In ye olde times, (I am guessing here:) there probably wouldb't even have been a distinction between sidewalk and road. People would have the entire road to walk down, just having to mind out for the odd horse and cart.
Now tarmac has been brought in to buiild proper dedicated roads, which dominate the high street, and the pedestian walking area is shuttled off to the sides.
I'll tell you exactly why. I live and have for my whole life lived outside of a community. I live on a road in rural Wales not even a village, the neighbours are a serious walk away and the views are fantastic.
Near me is a little village, very close community, very tight. The kids are good and are brought up with good family values, they aren't Mary Poppin's children but they're all good kids at heart.
Further from me is a town and not too far from that another one. These are large enough to have 2 supermarkets each, their own doctors and dentist surgeries etc. There is no real community here with the adults, there are some friends groups and sports clubs but pretty much no tight knit community. It never used to be this way but as the town grows people become more alienated. The kids can get away with murder because nobody knows each other, whereas when I grew up and used to visit the village you couldn't do anything wrong because if anyone saw you they'd say
>Hey that's Dave's kid lets go sort him out
The towns near me because of this have brought up a bunch of wasters with no community values nearly all on benefits with a HUGE drug problem (mainly speed, cocaine and heroine) and nobody cares because there is no communal spirit.
Cities need more money to live in and it is not impossible but at least harder to live off the dole in a city so a lot of the scum move away from the cities, making them more bareable but also flooding the towns again with these shit cunt wasters and perpetuating the problem.
Mate even on the lat ten years It's gone down hill. Full of third world era swaddled in clothe. I used to teach in that borough
My god the recent influx of radical islam need addressing
Never used to get grief of muslim parents. Suddenly they're wearing veils the men are in dresses and all complaining about Christmas and pressuring the nice families to toe the line
>implying he has not the average brown ANGLO look and those beady ANGLO eyes
Eternal Anglo detected
When men could wallop a kid for being an outrageous cunt things were better.
Now they know you'll get in trouble if you do anything they're insufferable yobs
Before a teenager wouldn't greif people because a grown man would sort him out whether he knew him or not
Notice the parallels with Muslims
Now they've twigged they're untouchable they're behaving like townie chavs
We fight in the morning, we fight at lunch time, we fight in the afternoon, we fight in the deepest night.
Never again must the Aryan man be without his freedom fighters!
Very VERY true. And if you ask me it's my parents generation and later's fault (The ones younger than late 50s). They really really want to give their kids the 'best' life and they are taking all the rights of passage and hardship away from growing up to make it easier but really it just generates a whole country of pussies. Meanwhile these pussies import a bunch of battle hardened pissed of sand niggers all of fighting age and with 12 names one of which is Muhammad. But it's okay as long as we keep handing out participation trophies, job seekers allowance and never let our kids learn what failure is we'll be okay.
We are from many Aryan nations.
We are legion.
And we will crush the Anglo.
All towns look the same now.
Same shops, same little red pavement bricks, same looking people dressed in same looking sportswear.
All the character is gone, used to go to St. Albans when I was younger, lots of music shops and things to do.
Now its like everywhere else with , greggs,charity shops,costa cofee etcetera
You got caught out you shitskin.
Any kid but rich ones knows what failure is. What opportunities do they have at all now they've filled all unskilled and semi skilled with immigrants.
This country should be a paradise where we can all be mellow
clearly you've never been to Scotland.
Scottish towns are beautiful lad
>mfw live in london
>get to live in the greatest city in the world
so long as i don't get stabbed by niggers or killed by muzzies of course
The worst part is every single kid in these towns are red pilled on jews but brainwashed on refugees. I was at my friends house and was watching one guy rant about Jews while calling me a racist for saying we need to vote UKIP and stop letting in Muslims. Another told me they were an anarchist but would vote Labour and another told me they were an anarchist so wouldn't vote at all, but that we also need to help the poor refugees. They're fucking brainwashed and/or completely incapable of logical thought.
Is there supposed to be something wrong with brown hair and brown eyes?
Whenever they bring up being anarchist, ask them whether they would support abolishing the NHS. It's our secular religion so you may trigger them though for even suggesting the idea.
Absolutely right. Any remaining urban architects and urban planners need to be hanged for their hand in destroying Britain.
Architecture influences the way people behave and feel. Architects should never design buildings they'd never voluntarily live in.
I'm gunna give you an example of a town from my Childhood because it's name is also the description of itself.
Look up 'Mold' in Flintshire in Wales. It's a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Another town in Wales that is literally just a benefits dumping ground where 90% of children are on ritalin is called Gwersyllt.
>Yfw you'll never be a well respected man about town, doing the best things so conservatively. In one of these places....
Dog suicide bridge?
Urban planners are so incompetent that urban green space turns into dodgy parts that you should never go in. The sort of place where you'd either get raped, stabbed, or come across a decaying body.
My town got fucked over by leftists
On the other hand, at least the schools don't appear to be stuffed with pakis.
Ive been to UK and ireland a couple of times and have to say your towns really are exceptionally shit.
Especially all living area, suburbs... Look like they were built with the intention of looking depressing as fuck.
I feel for you eternal anglos
I live in Cromer and it's not too bad, but we're lucky and it gets a town of money through Tourism during the summer.
That being said, every fucking job is retail. So not a lot of career work but quite nice to grow up in.
And it's Norfolk so the crime rates and immigration are pretty low.
I would say that most cities in the UK are abysmal actually bar a select larger few, some towns are nice but villages and countryside bestest
here's a nice town
>can't afford even a single bedroom flat or bedsit
>going to have to live in a caravan
Can't wait for the civil war lads. I come from a middle class family and it's impossible to get a home even with their help. We'll see what happens when you have a large bunch of millenials who have had their homeland sold out from underneath them.
Outside of economic factors I predict house prices will fall when the boomers die off, since they own the majority of property. There will be too many sellers and not enough buyers. That will be my only chance to swoop in.
>provided we don't keep taking in thousands of immigrants
There is a better chance of pigs flying into mosques than that.
Do you ever notice on shows such as question time how riled up the crowd gets when the NHS is brought up. I swear some people have an unhealthy obsession, if you even suggest a slight bit of privatisation in areas where it will benefit the organisation overall, all you hear is "Tory scum!". We should change our national anthem to God Save the NHS at this point.
Don't worry it's Russia lad.
Britain has it's fair of shitholes, for a first world country.
As far as I'm aware there's nothing that looks remotely close to that in Scotland or Ireland and I'm willing to bet its the same for Englandshire.
>Why are our towns so fucking shit?
because they are full of shit people like you
if you don't like the place where you live, do something to change it instead of sitting in front a computer whining about it
>if you don't like the place where you live, do something to change it
some places are beyond saving tbf
One my English friends at uni moved here from Birmingham for example.
I don't think there's much he could do
UK Adopted Corporations and Factories early on.
They adopted a Trade Model that had little use for Brtisih CItizens/Workers/Serfs.
Money was invested in Ships to import cheap goods from overseas to make Wealthy Owners, Wealthy Capitalist, Wealthy Investors rich with little Labor Costs, little Property Costs for Estates, Little Management Problems for Estates/Haciendas, little Tax, and mainly the Labor could be low skilled, bonded servants, or slaves.
Corporations were formed.
Responsibilities to the common were cut!!!
architect here. even if we stylistically build in vernacular style, we can never built low density lowrises towns as the medieval era. since we need to cater to population growth.
say there's new surge of conservatism in architecture, what you get is probably a futuristic version of gilded age era new york / chicago
What's wrong with 19th/early 20th century tenements? Pleasant but still relatively efficient.
Born in a little town in the northeast, I liked the fact that we couldn't just shrug our shoulders and blame our problems on immigrants because there weren't any. Of course we just blamed Thatcher for muh mines. Every little area has their own little fucking scapegoat I feel
There's a lot more optimism in America than Britain, I can't really explain it
Who /East Riding of Yorkshire/ here?
>The district is one of the lowest non-white populations, with the census reporting 98.8% of the inhabitants being white
>Full of small villages like OP talks about
>Beautiful countryside as far as the eye can see
>Amazing churches and cathedral's everywhere
>Pretty nice coastline to
Come home, white man.
>see gate swung open on pavement
>see bin fallen over
>put it back up
Done my part m8
