First time i have seen that in its entirety. The local library has only a small portion of it and my gaff now stands more or less where that tree swing was   and just over 5 mins walk from the Livingston Inn. Good food, sh!te beer is how its described.

Livingstone - Central Scotland's answer to Mos Eisley, "a wretched hive of scum and villainy"

Went to live there in 2004 to be closer to my work, lasted about 5 months and headed back west having had my house mud balled, my son mugged and my car damaged, would never move back if you paid me a fortune

Spot on!!, we were told that it was the good end of Knightsridge, but to get to the school you had to walk thorough a fair representation of Beirut, and the roving bands of neds paid our area a regular visit!

The wife has worked at the primary for more years than I care to remember working with kids with difficulties. She has applied to go to Afghanistan this summer to escape the violence.
