liverpool, the 5th largest populated district in england. the city sits at the mouth of the mersey estuary and is currently enjoying a resurgence in fortunes.
now for all those fools who have criticised liverpool and her people in these definitions, i think its time to address some grievances. i know many of you’ll not like what i have to say, but that’s tough s**t. so without any more chatter lets begin…
accusation: scousers are all thieves!
response: liverpool has a lower crime rate then nearly all the major cities in britain. even taking population in to account, some notable cities which have higher crime rates include manchester and london.
accusation: liverpool has no culture!
response : the city of liverpool has more listed buildings than anywhere in the britain, with the exception of westminster. this is due to the fact that liverpool had the worlds largest port from the 19th century up until the 20th. this meant liverpool was alive with travellers from around the world, all bridging their culture with them. indeed liverpool has the oldest chinese community in europe, dating back 800 years. not only this but the area surrounding the famous liver buildings is a unesco world heritage site.
we have numerous art galleries, two amazing cathedrals, not to mention a great musical heritage. many scousers are also blessed with the ability to formulate a coherent argument explaining why idiots who insult our city are the quintessence of stupidity. did i mention we have three universities, the university of liverpool being responsible for coining the term red brick.
accusation: liverpool is a sh-thole!
response: ever since the second world war, when liverpool was the second most bombed city outside of london (somebody thought we were important), the city had never recovered. despite being the centre for atlantic command and the most important port in the empire, once the war was over we were left to get on with it. the damage to the city was immense and the city did not receive the investment it needed to recover. when coupled with the decline in shipping, the result was many people out of work living in poverty. during a time when you needed money to get ahead, education was not a top priority and standards fell. as time went by, and due to the ignorance of others, little investment made its way into the city and stereotypes began to form. the city went in to serious economic decline.
however there is now renewed optimism and ever increasing investment in to the city, e.g. the £1 billion pound grovesner paradise project. the city is not a sh-t hole, but its not perfect, nowhere is. but i would rather live here than london(filled with many rude people).
liverpool does have problems, it does have sc-m, thieves, and idiots but a lot less than some places i can think of. i am not going to criticise other cities because everywhere has its charms. the fact is that liverpool people are very friendly, we put up with so much criticism that you learn to smile through it. most scousers don’t hate manchester by the way, just the idiots that criticise us. we are not racist, but liverpool fc is the most successful football club of all time. look it up.

place full of the nicest people you’l meet in a city
all you steriotypical gimps should actually visit this city before you diss it, but you probably havent even been cos your too lower cl-ss
the best city in the world. liverpool is culturally diverse and the people are a joy to be around. liverpool is also a fantastic night out mainly due to the fact that scousers love a good laugh and know how to have a good time. unfortunatly liverpool constantly battles with sterotyping usually believed by narrow minded idiots who have never actually visited the european capital of culture. don’t get me wrong liverpool has its problems, but no more than any other big city.
liverpool also has a unique accent with unique slang terms:
‘boss’- excellent/ really good
‘laaa’- mate/ friend
‘maa’ and ‘daa’- mum and dad
a society in which everything works in complete reverse, from what one expected the world to be like as a child, or is that whats called adulthood? have you noticed some invertism lately?
