Thread: Swansea in the running for City of Culture

    Never thought l would ever say this but

    Come on Swansea,would be great to see you win City of culture

    Re: Never thought l would ever say this but

    Current holder of UK City of Culture is Hull. The previous was Londonderry. I don't know what the threshold is for carrying the crown but having visited both then it must be extremely low as both Hull and Londonderry are crap holes.

    Entry into the competition is basically an admission that your 'City' is a little bit shit

    Isn't "City of Culture" basically "Shithole of the Year"?

    Re: Never thought l would ever say this but

    There’s a lot going on in Swansea at the moment - redevelopment of the High Street, SA1, etcetc.

    It was falling apart but progress is being made.

    Pity about the population. That will never develop.

    Good to know about the redevelopment.
    All joking and jibes about the place aside, I was genuinely shocked when I had reason to visit a few months ago.
    So run down and so widespread the decay.

    It is becoming a bit 1984 around here. Such a shame.

    When I was working over at Yate, and being away early in the morning, I was listening to Mal Pope each day, I thought
    he was a very good Radio Geezer, enjoyed his show.

    Re: Swansea in the running for City of Culture

    Yate. The place with the most people with the least culture. Conceived in Spirals nightclub toilets Unlike the toffs up the road in chipping sodbury who were conceived in The Squire Pub toilets after the mop annual high street fair.

    Top nosh in the Squire the sods certainly thought they were up market to the Yaties

    It should come as no surprise that I fell asleep in that little courtyard where you can smoke fags and was asked to leave. Had paid at the bar for my steak pie n chips so didn't get a free meal. Gutted.

    Re: Swansea in the running for City of Culture

    Swansea should take is a compliment that the judges actually deemed that Coventry was more needy than they are.

    The whole competition seems desperate to me.

    Swansea may we'll have lost as they were planning a Bonnie Tyler concert on the beach if they won.

    I kid ye not

    I saw the promo clip where Bonnie Tyler was trying to convince the judges that Swansea was full of creativity... A woman that sang Total Eclipse Of The Heart on a cruise ship during a solar eclipse this year!!

    She wouldn’t know creativity if it punched her in the face (which, obviously I hope it does).

    What a shambles Swansea is!

    John Hartson on the radio earlier saying that Richard Burton. Anthony Hopkins n Michael Sheen were from there. Though they were Port Tablet. If he's pulling that one then he has to own up to Keith Allen as well. Same Rules.

    I was in Swansea recently for a debating competition and I couldn't believe how run down it was

    Richard Burton and Anthony Hopkins are from Port Talbot, Sheen was born in Newport but moved there.

    If they're claiming that lot do we get to claim the Manics, Aneurin Bevan, Tom Jones and Tommy Cooper? Where do we draw the line?
