There are a lot of disadvantaged people who are stuck there but the majority are lowlife scum who would be better parted from this earth.
My opinion of course.
You must have had a bad experience there to be able to say something like that (possibly voiced your opinions at the wrong place and time).
I have relatives living there (my sister who has bought her house and my niece who is a solicitor and nephew who has degrees) and for 40 years I collected football coupons and money on there and never had a bit of bother.
Just because a few bad apples cause trouble on council estates which get highlighted in the local press and media sites everyone gets tarred with the same evil brush
my opinion only
