Telford was developed in the 1970s as a 'New Town'.
Keen not to repeat all the errors that made other new towns such dreary crime ridden dumps, such as Milton Keynes or Stevenage, Telford Development Corporation came up with some new and refreshing mistakes all of their own, making Telford possible the biggest planning disaster in the whole UK.
In addition to being the chav capital of the UK, it has the world's largest Primark store, the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the solar system and has only about 30% of the population in employment. These are all Polish.
It does have some good features. Every year without fail it wins the league table of 'The Most Godless City In The World' (True) having lowest rate of Christian Church attendance in the known universe, even beating Tehran.
Telford: Chav Capital, 'Most Godless City In The World' winner 1999 to 2011, dump.
