I found something rather interesting whilst scanning t'internet this morning.

Chester, my home city, is apparently the 5th prettiest (or best, depending on your interpretation) city in Europe, beating such giants as Prague, Budapest, Santorini, Venice and Bruges. Now, seeing as the list was voted on by American's, we can assume it is 100% accurate and fully informed, seeing as they do enjoy travel so much, and has to be considered as exhaustively researched and fully comprehensive a survey as possible.

Can anyone trump Chester as the prettiest city in the UK? I can only think of York and Bath that perhaps come close, but Bath is too southern to be considered and York is too Yorkshireish to really be worthy of comparison. So it is official, Chester is the greatest city in the UK and by extension, people from Chester have to be considered as the greatest citizens of the UK.

I think you'll all agree.

Gone from 5th to 1st in one paragraph.........That's impressive

Must admit once I've got past the irritational aspect of being dragged there I do like the ambience of the place.....

Great place..Shame about the people..

Nope. I have said prettiest in the UK in the second paragraph. Read the article, Beefcake, the 4 that beat it are not in the UK.

In all fairness Chester is lovely. York is very nice though as well. Genuinely could not pick between the two of them. Would like to think it goes without say that should Rotherham ever be given city status it will romp to top of the league.

As an aside me and TSMR went to York for our first anniversary and Chester for our tenth.

I was born in Fulford Hospital York and lived just outside so I guess it is my home town, and makes me considerably better than Tina.

I must admit, I did enjoy Bath very much. Independant shops, restaurants and especially pubs in abundance. Lovely, lovely cricket ground there too. I went to that spa place with the rooftop pool and all the aromatherapy steam rooms. Sounds a bit homo but cracking for copping an eyeful of knorks / minge.

Would make no difference to me Galted, the fact you are not from Yorkshire means I hate you pretty much unreservedly anyway, once you are outside of Yorkshire where outside is a complete irrelevance to me.

I once went near ipswich by accident horwich hulwich maybe - was trying to take the scenic route to luton from hatfield - through hertford and stevenage - instead of going the 2nd exit towards wheathampsted - carried on going straight and one of the signs proclaiming the next few exits to be closed for works had been blown down so missed it. Then my mate tried to be clever and we ended up at colchester and his stark refusal to get directions or even slow down to take stock made us do a O turn rather than a U turn and we got onto a120. Weirdest coincidence - the petrol station i'd ended up was manned by the guy who had sacked me from my weekend job with bestway. Rather an awkward moment!

Chester, my home city, is apparently the 5th prettiest (or best, depending on your interpretation) city in Europe, beating such giants as Prague, Budapest, Santorini, Venice and Bruges.  Now, seeing as the list was voted on by American's, we can assume it is 100% accurate and fully informed, seeing as they do enjoy travel so much, and has to be considered as exhaustively researched and fully comprehensive a survey as possible.

Can anyone trump Chester as the prettiest city in the UK?  I can only think of York and Bath that perhaps come close, but Bath is too southern to be considered and York is too Yorkshireish to really be worthy of comparison.  So it is official, Chester is the greatest city in the UK and by extension, people from Chester have to be considered as the greatest citizens of the UK.

I think you'll all agree.

Assumption is the mother of all c*ck ups, old chap.

Absolutely, old fruit. I couldn't agree more. How can anybody possibly take such things so seriously as to take the trouble to start threads about them. Beats me. Toodle Pip.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you know the thread was tongue in cheek.

Either that or you're a desperately pompous tw*t but I'm sure that's not the case...

Instead of thinking about Peaches Geldof all day I may devote some time to wondering whether it's better to be pompous or stalkerish.

Of course it's tongue in cheek. Everybody knows that. My replies are all just a bit of fun banter.

And, I'm sure that, as one of the self-proclaimed greatest citizens in the UK, you're not really getting cranky about it at all. It's just a good act, eh?

Have a pretty day.

Bit of a tangent here but I thought FL could help me. Is going to a fancy dress party as Jimmy Savile acceptable these days?

A bit on a par with Prince Harry wearing a Nazi costume to a university party. You might get away with it at the ball, but you really don't want word to get around.

Go as a gorilla instead. It works for me.

There were the two girls, coincidently in Chester, who went as the twin towers recently. As my friend in America put it over there they would have been shot before she had the chance to say dumb f**ks.

There may be kids there. I think it'll be ok as long as the couple who didn't like my Savile joke earlier in the year don't come again.
