Dudley could be a really nice town. There's some serious heritage there (castle, priory, SSSI, glass industry, Black Country Museum) but everyone just seems so downtrodden and as you say, willing to blame someone else. Birmingham takes the money, Merry Hill's taken the trade, They've come over here and taken our benefits/jobs/women. Nobody ever seems to want to get off their arse and do something about it.Andy McDandy wrote: ↑Sun Feb 07, 2021 10:10 pmSo, Ian, what is the biggest impact on Dudley?
Dudley has spent the last 40 years blaming everything on something else. It used to be the collapse of the local mining industry (along with a few streets). The it was Merry Hill, until folks pointed out that Dudley town centre was dying long before that.
It's a dump. No reason why it should be, save for the pigshit ignorance of everyone who lives there.
We've got democracy! Who needs solidarity?
