Who would live in a town like this?

I dont think anyone else has blogged this, but there has been some discussion today of last night’s Channel 4 programme ‘Best and Worst Places to Live in the UK’.

The programme ranked all of the Local Authorities across the UK looking at things such as educational performance, entertainment venues and employment.

Coming in with the coveted title of third worse place to live in the UK was Strabane. The makers of the programme list Strabane’s infamous unemployment rate as one of the main reasons for its poor showing in the poll but I’m not sure if they measured sheep worrying, as listed in the extended entry in the website, in every area.
