The Worst Things in Oakham, Rutland*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Oakham.

The Worst Things
  • Too many chavs
  • The townies and the speed bumps that are EVERYWHERE.
  • the ever increasing band of dense local youths whose time is devoted to wearing the donnay winter collection and starting fights with anyone not claiming benefits.
  • Cso officers, theyre like citizens that play at bein police
  • the fact Joe is from there
  • All the little twats
  • Drivers. This area has plenty of arseholes with Audis / Mercedes etc. who are so important that they do not have a second to spare. They take absolutely no notice of speed limits anywhere and consider anybody who has an inferior car as scum who have no right to be in their way on their roads.
  • Lack of things for young people to do. American tourists in the summer calling everything they see quaint!! My advice if you still live in Oakham is get out, quick! There is life outside, your head won't blow up if you leave the boundries of Rutland! Trust me I'm living proof. And if you are under 60 and thinking of either visiting or moving to Oakham then my advice would be don't.
