Anyone traveling south down the A1 heading for the M11 part of the new A14  is open a few miles south of the usual Huntingdon turn off and joins up with the old A14 near Cambridge services.

Fine bit of road, once on the older A14 the usual speed restrictions but traffic moving fine.

And anyone that’s gone/going further down the A1, northbound shut and southbound snarled up because of said accident so traffic stationary...

The ‘new A14’ from the A1 Junction is excellent.  Used to take me 45 minutes to get from Higham Ferrers in Northants to my boat in Fen Stanton, now takes 25 minutes.  Means I get to a place of pleasure much quicker on a Saturday.  Far better than driving to Grimsby for the pleasure of being surrounded by tattooed, pierced, negative, down-trodden, council house dwelling underlings.  Of course, this is just my opinion......

Can't understand the point of this post but do find it disrespectful to myself and would imagine many other people from Grimsby and there's no need for it.

I left Grimsby seventeen years ago when I was eighteen. Putting it like that, it feels weird and also slightly sad that I’ve spent almost half my life outside of my home town.

For work and family reasons I’ll probably never move ‘home’, and I acknowledge that the area has its challenges.

But fúck me, am I proud of where I come from. It’s a fundamental part of who I am. It’s a hard town, it’s grim in places, but you grow up here and you learn a certain work ethic. You graft. You make the most of whatever you’re blessed with.

My upbringing has carried me further than any talent I have might have taken me. Further than many people I encounter who are more naturally talented, intelligent or privelaged than me.

I couldn’t make it to Leyton Orient today, and I’m gutted. But there’s little in life more special than being a couple of hundred miles away from home with thousands of your brethren, going fúcking mental! People you don’t necessarily know, but have this natural, innate connection with.

To disown your own town in the way the previous poster did says more about their own insecurities than it does about the place itself. If you don’t support the town, I don’t see how you can support its football team.

I’m Grimsby ‘til I die.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

Actually feeling just more than a little bit angry now. Like Poojah, I've lived away from Meggies for 29 years now, but have never forgotten what it gave me, and how it shaped the person I eventually became. Hang your head in shame, kunt.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

You see, you've come across as a bit cuntish too.
I'm born Scunthorpe but been supporting Town and battered for it since 1972.
Proud of the town, the steel industry and my 40 year contribution to it.
