Whilst it;s certainly true that British towns and cities have more than their fair share of moronic binge drinkers and the problems of general decay and rubbish, this selection is still totally skewed. On another flick through I put them into general types - 9 featuring drink/fast food etc. with another 6 I'd categorize as gritty urban - 5 feature mainly old/er people on seats and benches - 5 are best described as slightly eccentric [and a welcome lift from the squalor of the previous photos!] - 3 feature someones Dad and his kitchen and bedroom - 5 are sort of scenic to various degrees and 2 are a bit hard to place!
There is just so much more to these islands - so much more to the people - and a far wider variety of people asnd what they do than the ones portrayed. Irony is good - realism is good. But the category was'nt This is Run Down Britain. I wonder if any other country would come up with such an overall depressing selection.
