I think Laga is from Leeds. His opinion is irrelevant.

Leeds wishes.
I just work there, I neither live there nor come from there thank god.


If you commute there, then you must live near there. And so your opinions are irrelevant.

75 miles away is far enough out to not be classed as "living near there" for opinion purposes.

Fair enough, Leeds isn’t to bad anyway, it’s not like you live in a truly horrific place like Redcar. :dread:

My morning travel to work is a half an hour walk through a park, then along a beach, then through another park. Wales can be a bit third world sometimes but at least it's scenic. Not sure I could cope with a stressful commute personally, fair play to people who manage it, must be tough.

I wish my nails were that good. Years of nail biting have left them an unpaintable disaster.

Funnily enough I never developed an American accent, though I did end up with a fascination for America that's become my career. :slol:

I watched the British stuff too but I've definitely got a fascination with America. A big part of doing my degree was so that I could move there.

I know the negatives of the USA are being highlighted by the likes of Trump but as with most places the people you interact with 99% of the time are really nice.
