Well, 9pm on channel 4 to be exact, the latest mocumentary starts and highlights the plight of our once thriving town and will just clarify in people's thoughts how it is depicted .

Now, this would surely be the right time for defruityarse and his army of nimby minions to see the plight of our much maligned town and do something about it

This is why we need a new stadium. This is why we need fresh blood and new life put into the whole of n e lincs. It is not a selfish move by the club and supporters. This can be the start of the resurgance


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Will the ground be accommodating drop in centres, community and health agencies and a drug rehabilitation centre? The problems on the East Marsh wont be helped by a shiny new football stadium a few miles away.

The whole East Marsh area is a mismatch of housing types in a mixture of private, housing association and buy to let ownership. Low cost, single person accommodation issued to the long term term unemployed with drug issues situated next door to exclusive elderly accommodation...recipe for disaster. When housing associations evict tenants they just go into private rented sector around the corner and continue to abuse property and their neighbours.

Skint will no doubt edit whatever they have to reflect whatever it is they want to show but the problems are real, they are not tricks of the camera or editing. I had previously worked in social housing for many years including 4/5 yrs on the East Marsh up until a year ago and trust me some of the sights in the properties need to be seen to be believed.  
When faced with properties and people who dont have the basic human decencies to clean, wash and are happy or oblivious to the squalor they are living and breeding in then IMO the area requires clearing.

Yes there are some great and good people in the area but they are being isolated by the ever increasing drug and crime issues. Its too far gone IMO but the mixture of ownership means that no one would be able to take control of the area overall and take the steps necessary to start afresh, even the new housing which has been built on there, Roberts St, Guidlford St, Oxford St are ruined by the tenants who have no respect as largely they go to rental/ social housing markets.

I have worked all of the estates and East Marsh is probably the worst of them for all round social issues, the Yarborough was pretty bad and they had to flatten that to improve it.
