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.
