Gods Own Country, Or Is It? in The Broadscot Lounge Posted May 10 4 hours ago, chameleon said: in the national poll of the 10 worst places to live in the uk 6 were in yorkshire, ... I was born in Yorkshire yonks ago, leaving (=being taken away) for Cheshire when I was 5. I read through these 10 "worst places". Did I really consider returning to the UK at one stage? Note: whenever my wife & I visit the UK we really enjoy it - the last time in April 2019 where we stayed a few nights in Keswick & then Buxton. Great until our disasterous encounter with the security folks at Manchester Airport on departure (a combination of really unhelpful people & their computer system crashing causing a holdup that meant we missed our return flight AND they refuse to accept responsibility for it).
