The Worst Things
  • A life lesson to all Darn Hill Billy's.. YOU THICK bastards, you were moved from the bowels of YOUR city to get you away from the filth and pollution of Collyhurst and Harpurhey. You haven't started ' a new life' like someone moving to say Wales.You have been moved to a spare piece of land in a shitty little beer swilling, chip eating tiny former industrial town called Heywood.. its NOT the promised land... far from it. Since they moved you lot up in the 1960's you seem to think you're different than your other city overspills like Hattersley, Hillock., Langley and other ones. YOU'RE NOT and NEVER will be... you say Bury to rhyme with Berry ( like belly ) , you're still known as 'MANCHESTER THROWBACKS' by anyone over 60 in Bury... Rochdale doesnt give a shit about you ( or Heywood itself )...truth is no one wants you. You plague the 163s.... you all go off to 'The Rock' instead of back to your own city which laughably you all just call 'Manchester' unlike Langley and co who 6 mincheck still call it 'town'....if anybody should be calling Mcr 'town' its you lot : when you came to work on the buses in Bury in the 1970s in your droves, you BITTERLY rejected your home city talking of ..hee yar mayt I'm on a 35 to Manchissdoh... you were fooling NO ONE as the Bury drivers pissed their selves at Mancs trying to stick two fingers up at the city they were moved up from into cold cardboard boxes on Darn Hill and trying to be Bury-ites. Darn Hill ? Youre a fucking JOKE !!!!!!!!!!!!
