Just watched Austin Mitchell's positive film about our town and thought he'd done a really good job.

What do you guys think?

This is the film that was supposed to counteract the sacha baron Cohen film in which supposedly portrays our town as a excrement hole full of rampaging drunken chavs.
Well this short film did nothing of the sort because it kept well away from the real Grimsby, Instead focussing on the commercial side of the town and showing what a thriving port town we have.
All well and good business is booming here then by all accounts!! but what about the image of our town and people Austin?
I was expecting to see filming in and around the town meeting everyday people who actually live here, showing the community projects, our parks, shopping centre, leisure facilities, sports clubs including the famous black and whites.
Also the d list celebs that took part seemed a bit of a desperate move for me, with Kevin who lives in London and supports the scunts strolling along cleethorpes beech, the stinking hypocrite Guy Martin tinkering with his trucks (does he ever get owt done in that garage) and Patricia who is she Hodge narrating although to be fair to her she did a good job, but where was our Tommy? a proper proud Grimmy if ever there was one.
I may sound critical of the film but only in the context it's been made for, because from a business point of view I think this is an excellent advertisement, it shows Grimsby as a booming port town on the up, and can only be Good for bringing in future investment.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Promise a man someone else's fish and he votes Labour.

Agree "Kevin from Grimsby who is actually from Waltham, supports Scunthorpe and lives in London" can intercourse right off.

I didn't actually realise how famous Guy Martin was until I moved away and the motorbike male masturbators (if you ride one you are a male masturbator there is no two ways about it - I'm sorry I've got to break it to you) I saw wearing his teeshirts etc in various JRMs around the forces. He is genuinely world famous though evidently. Although I think his TV stuff uses a bit of artistic licence as many from out of NEL think he works in some sort of olde worlde chariot garage.

I'd never heard of Guy Martin, I've probably been under a rock. I've been living down south for the past year or so and when I mention Grimsby/Lincolnshire his name is usually the name that pops up! I even had to Google him the first time as I looked gone out at a lady questioning me about his life. The film has done the job, but to not mention the football club is a poor show. Could have done with Tommy Turgoose's involvement.

Son in law has Guy  Martin's book in which he apparently calls Grimsby a sh1t hole.
