It Sucks in the City

I wasn’t entirely surprised to read Lisa’s post about morons shouting in the street, especially after the grim events in Liverpool while we’d been away for a week.

As it’s only a year and a half since some hoodies blew up the phonebox down the road from us, it would seem that shouting in the street must now rank pretty low on the crime scale in Liverpool when you have kids shooting each other and pub doormen getting fired upon.

Mentally I’ve already checked out of this city and physically I want out as soon as we can arrange it, which will probably be some time during Liverpool’s reign as City of Culture 2008. Drips with irony, that does.
