Nah mate, it's Corby Asda for you now. You're going to want a proper gas mask, not for the covid, for the soap dodgers who only leave the house over the festive period.

I got lost in Corby the other day looking for the galvanising factory. It's a weird area with rough towns with large industrial zones indispersed by idyllic villages and countryside.

If only Rutland Weekend Television were still going, Eric Idle would be doing investigative journalism into this...'as you might say'...

I know we've been going on about zinc on this site, but it won't do you any good in the metallic form.

Do the Scots segregate themselves in the former only?

I didn't stay long enough to find out, it's someway outside my normal range. I believe the towns in that part of Northamptonshire are also home to the bright young things that commute to high powered jobs in London but can't afford to live there (well used to pre 2020) so it's probably getting gentrified a bit. The Scottish steel workers must be starting to die off by now.

Well , they are, but don't forget they did breed a lot before doing so.

Do their offspring go with Scottish identity or are they English Midlanders?

Takes me back..  the Hardly Dangerous garage was a major landmark on my route to school 30 years ago.  Nice to know it’s still there.

Weird innit.

I'm still waiting to see all these supposed benefits of having an ever expanding population (implemented through mass immigration and encouraging/rewarding our native feckless breeders)

For some reason all I'm seeing so far (23 years and counting) is every possible socio/economic measure of quality of life in this country getting gradually worse and worse... and worse.
