Huddersfield has peaked the top of the list as one of the worst places to live in England this year, according to a community website ILiveHere.UK.
The survey, which is now in its 12th year, saw 31, 191 readers take part and vote for the ‘last salubrious dump in this septic isle’ to create a ultimate Top 10 of the worst ‘hell-holes’ in England 2018.
The West Yorkshire town, has believed to be ‘lurking around’ the top 10 for a while, but ended up finishing 50% more votes than Rotherham, beating its nearest rival.
Readers who voted Huddersfield commented:
There’s nothing but pound shops and a few coffee shops. It’s polluted, unclean and full of idiots. It’s a horrible place to live.
Huddersfield it’s a rough, boring, chavvy, crap hole.
For a demo of the chav scooterists trying to impress the scummy lady chavs simply go and look in the Morrisons car park from about 7pm onwards, thousands of the cretins, unfortunately they never seem to fall off.
So in short if you like your car windows, teeth, kneecaps etc. then avoid this s******e like you would a man with leprosy! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
After Huddersfield took the crown, second and third places went to Rotherham and Liverpool, correspondingly, with the website’s voters referring to the former as a ‘worthy nomination’.
ILiveHere told voters: “Let’s get down to business of offending local councillors, dignitaries and meddlesome ratbags plus ruining the trade of slime ball lying estate agents.
“It makes our day when they react to the new Top 10, desperately trying to polish a turd of a town.”
Dover, which took the top spot last year, has dropped to number 10 for 2018 – apparently because ‘nobody wants to live here’.
“If you have never been there, the name of the town probably conjures up images of the iconic white cliffs. The reality is, Dover is one of the biggest dumps in the South East.”
Bristol joined the list as a first appearance, in joint ninth place with Blackburn, one vote commenting: “Beneath the veneer of textbook overdone hipster pretentiousness is the same Bristol of old, where the West Country chavs spew out their own unique interpretation of the English language.”
With Dover and Bristol being the only southern spots to feature, the rest of the list also included Accrington (8th), Hull (7th), Castleford (6th), Blackpool (5th) and Rochdale (4th).
But Huddersfield won out in the end, with ILiveHere explaining: “Huddersfield finished with 50% more votes than Rotherham, thrashing its nearest rival and putting the rest to shame.”
Voters described the city as ‘boring’, with one also writing: “There’s nothing but pound shops and a few coffee shops. It’s polluted, unclean and full of idiots. It’s a horrible place to live.”
Another voter decided to also throw out a mention to the capital, saying: “It would never make it on to any of these ‘worst places to live’ lists, but honestly, I wouldn’t live anywhere in London if you paid me and gave me the house for free.”
