Report Aberdeen - Why? in Scotland Posted November 22, 2012 [...] unless he has some serious scotch blood or a hankering for the lowlands, as well as a rather thick skin (both physically - ideally with some subcutaneous insulation - as well as emotionally) i cannot think of a worse place to go. Well, Leeds perhaps. Or Corby. When I lived in Aberdeen, I must have been suffering from a sort of Stockholm syndrome, coz I just know I'd have taken exception to that remark. Now that I'm in recovery, I have to say, I couldn't agree more. If I never visit the place again, it'll be too soon. I only wonder how I managed to endure the indignantly abrasive mindset of the provocatively insecure inhabitants for as long as I did. I've not been to Leeds, or Corby, so I can't comment. What's worst in those places, Is it the urban environment or the people?
