Also, to respond to the mindless fools who post about 'what a shithole' Liverpool is, I'd like to see where they come from.
The city of Liverpool is currently experiencing investment on a massive scale which is precisely why it was nominated (and won) Capital of Culture for 2008 - the high streets are clean, the people are friendly, the museums are fantastic, there are more art galleries (8 in total) than anywhere in the UK (bar London.)
Agreed, there are some 'scallies' about but tell me a city with 500'000+ inhabitants where you would't find any?
FACT: The Liverpudlian accent is far more tolerable (and, according to neutral outsiders, more endearing) than any Mancunian inbred dribble.
In conclusion, don't stereotype just because of some sketch you saw on Harry Enfield... I don't have a moustache, mullet and say, "errrrrrr" every other sentence.
Rebuttal: "I suggest you research your incredulous, narrow-minded, stereotypical claims before making them, you TWAT"
