Postcards from Welwyn Garden City

screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-11-42-58Dalrymple points out (from 4:10) that boredom is a way of life in Welwyn Garden City, which, he notes, is

a pretty terrible place.

The worst thing that can — will — happen to you there

is that you have nothing to do. That is the permanent condition of the people of Welwyn Garden City.

into those where the population takes heroin and those where the population takes amphetamine. You can tell by the housing. If it’s Victorian housing or tower blocks, it’s heroin. If it’s small houses in suburbs, it’s amphetamine.
