Liverpool, the 5th largest populated district in England. The city sits at the mouth of the Mersey estuary and is currently enjoying a resurgence in fortunes.

Now for all those fools who have criticised Liverpool and her people in these definitions, I think its time to address some grievances. I know many of you'll not like what I have to say, but that’s tough S**T. So without any more chatter lets begin...

Accusation: Scousers are all thieves!
Response: Liverpool has a lower crime rate then nearly all the major cities in Britain. Even taking population in to account, some notable cities which have higher crime rates include Manchester and London.

Accusation: Liverpool has no culture!
Response : The city of Liverpool has more listed buildings than anywhere in the Britain, with the exception of Westminster. This is due to the fact that Liverpool had the worlds largest port from the 19th century up until the 20th. This meant Liverpool was alive with travellers from around the world, all bridging their culture with them. Indeed Liverpool has the oldest Chinese community in Europe, dating back 800 years. Not only this but the area surrounding the famous Liver buildings is a unesco world heritage site.

We have numerous art galleries, two amazing cathedrals, not to mention a great musical heritage. Many Scousers are also blessed with the ability to formulate a coherent argument explaining why idiots who insult our city are the quintessence of stupidity. Did I mention we have three universities, The university of Liverpool being responsible for coining the term red brick.

Accusation: Liverpool is a shithole!
Response: Ever since the second world war, when Liverpool was the second most bombed city outside of London (somebody thought we were important), the city had never recovered. Despite being the centre for Atlantic command and the most important port in the Empire, once the war was over we were left to get on with it. The damage to the city was immense and the city did not receive the investment it needed to recover. When coupled with the decline in shipping, the result was many people out of work living in poverty. During a time when you needed money to get ahead, education was not a top priority and standards fell. As time went by, and due to the ignorance of others, little investment made its way into the city and stereotypes began to form. The city went in to serious economic decline.

However there is now renewed optimism and ever increasing investment in to the city, e.g. the £1 billion pound grovesner Paradise project. The city is not a shit hole, but its not perfect, nowhere is. But I would rather live here than London(filled with many rude people).

Conclusion:
Liverpool does have problems, it does have scum, thieves, and idiots but a lot less than some places I can think of. I am not going to criticise other cities because everywhere has its charms. The fact is that Liverpool people are very friendly, we put up with so much criticism that you learn to smile through it. Most Scousers don't hate Manchester by the way, just the idiots that criticise us. We are not racist, but Liverpool FC IS the most successful football club of all time. LOOK IT UP.

Liverpool is a coastal city in the North West of England, it has a long history as a trade port within the British Empire flourishing in that time predominantly due to its part in the slave trade and has been in decline ever since. Liverpool was awarded the title "European Capital of Culture" in 2008 after gun, drug and gang were introduced in the scoring system and the city wiped the board.
Liverpool is known for its rough, ugly and self-pitying people who will band together and indulge in huge amounts of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth rather than just picking themselves up and getting on with it. The best example of this is the 96 supporters of Liverpool Football club who were crushed to death by their fellow fans 20 years ago who they people from Liverpool still can't shut about for some reason despite them being killed by their fellows.
All in all Liverpool is a horrible little city devoid of any charm and is best avoided.

A stinking shithole of a city populated by the lowest people on the planet. If you arrive at Lime Street Station take my advice and get on the first train out to anywhere else. This place makes downtown Baghdad look like Venice at the height of summer. As soon as you step out of Lime Street you are greeted by a decaying concrete monstrosity and the most chavs you will ever see in one place. True there are a couple of niceish buildings but would you travel to Kabul to see one pretty building?

Forget anything you have heard about scouse humour. If your idea of comedy is robbing grannies, begging in the street, sniffing glue, stabbing anyone for anything or shoplifting then you will have a ball. Otherwise stay away.

Another warning is avoid these scumbags when they travel abroad. I live in Amsterdam and due to those twats at easyjet these arseholes can now travel abroad quite cheaply. They are easy to spot as they come here with one pair os shell suit bottoms and one liverpool FC top. They generally hunt in packs ie they come in a bar bringing a liverpool flag, sing for an hour and fuck off. They are hated by all (especially the dutch)and should not be allowed passports. Build a wall round the place and do everybody a favour.
Try playing spot the scouser at Schiphol going back to Liverpool. My Dutch mates think it is hilarious that people should be allowed to dress like they do.

The most boring football team in the history of the sport.
The only team known to play with 1 keeper, 9 defenders and a striker.
Yet another defeat for Liverpool.

A scruffy little city with a chip on it's shoulder and a persecution complex. Liverpool is within close proximity to it's regional capital, Manchester.

A complete hellhole. A town full of sordid, tango-tanned scrubbers and thick, ignorant, aggressive scallies. If you've ever seen the Burt Reynolds film 'Deliverance you'll have some idea what these people are like. These slackjawed, shaven-headed morons (otherwise known as 'friendly, witty scousers') are amongst the most violent and bigoted people on the planet. If you have the misfortune to live here ( and I do), for god's sake don't show any individuality, and try not to be from an ethnic background because they'll very probably kill you. Laughably this dump was awarded 'European City of Culture' for 2008, notwithstanding the fact that its so-called 'culture' consists of the 'Beatles' who left here in 1963 and never came back, and some of the worst clubs on earth playing the cretinous 'scouse-house'. Here are some tips for fitting in if you have the bad luck to end up here. These tips should ensure survival:

1. wear a tracksuit (women may wear pyjamas)
2. shave your head (women should be bottle blond)
3. develop a guttural whine (both sexes)
4. gob on the floor frequently (experts recommend at least every 10 steps) (both sexes)
5. try not to finish a sentence without using the F word at least fourteen times (again, both sexes)
6. steal anything that isn't nailed down
7. talk in an extremely loud voice (as you're so 'witty' everyone will want to hear your opinions)
8. glare at everyone in a threatening manner, especially students, 'goths' and anyone perceived to be'gay'
9. Call anyone not wearing a tracksuit 'gay' then beat them up
10. tell everyone how 'scousers are the friendliest people in the world aren't they though?'
The earth has to have an arse and Liverpool is it.

A football Club. It is supported by a bunch of 'glory boys' from the late '80's and other times when the club was actually any good. Few of the players are English, none of them have a brain and the manager is foreign. The supporters are trendies

Gloomy, grey, depressing: basically a complete and utter hell hole. I'm not even a narrow-minded tosser who has never visited, I've lived here a while and it's dreadful. St. Johns is scally central...you call that a bloody shopping mall? The locals screech and whine with their god-awful accents and I get a headache after listening to one of these creatures for more than 3 minutes. The place somehow won "Capital of Culture 2008" even though it's crap and the only culture I've seen is yob culture. The only vaguely nice area is the Cavern Quarter. I avoid going out at night because the sight of tangoed scally female clones with poker straight hair and skirts up to their waists and scally male clones with shaved heads and their neanderthal walk truly disturbs me.
I even saw an elderly man throw a crisp packet over his shoulder while sitting on a bench in Liverpool. He thinks it's crap too no doubt.
