Royston is notoriously inhabited by strange folk. Isolation provides a means for 'keeping it in the family'

To bob
what a stupid comment would you say that if someone broke into one of your family member home and robbed them at gun/knife point.
I very much doubt it.

No where is perfect every place has it's bad people, good people, nosey people, just the way the world works am afraid.

Maybe so, but my point remains valid. It's a dump populated by the dregs of society. Idiots dragging up cretins

Reply Posted by Nic on Thursday April 10 2014 at 23:47
Jono, Wombwell definitely. Romany scum, drugs, dealers, plastic gangsters, idiots, smackrats. Only the idiots are breeding. Spackers, breeding Spackers who rob the Spackers, to buy drugs from the Spackers. A massive self perpetuating pool of Spackers.

The town as a whole is a complete mess. Reminds me of Mad Max/The Walking Dead. It's not even funny either. Town Centre is horrendous, no wonder folk think we're all backwards and inbred

What a nasty person you are calling kids cretins it's not there fault how their upbringing is it's down to the provide their child with stability etc...

Reply Posted by deary me on Friday April 11 2014 at 09:35
Ment to say down to the parents to provide their child with stability etc...

Reply Posted by deary me on Friday April 11 2014 at 20:31
I work with kids for a living, everyday I see kids who don't have a proper upbringing. I'm certainly not a wet blanket I care about kids and I try my hardest to try and make a difference in their lives but when i people like yourself drag them down because of their parents doing makes me so angry you should be grateful for the things and the life you live cos dome of them kids would give anything to live in a happy nice peaceful home just for one day what a horrid person

@nic what a pathetic narrow minded little woman you are I haven't heard someone use the term "spacker" for about 20 years as to use such a word to describe someone can only come from the thoughts of an uneducated nasty horrid woman....and for your information it is suspected that the person is not even from Royston....I would pee myself laughing if this so called "spacker" turned out to actually be from your gene pool....pull your head out of your backside and get off your high horse
