It has that. But a very good museum and well kept parks. The area by the University is very Parisien. The bay is a nice area. Lovely old style shopping arcades.

It's a compact and lively city, with a castle at its heart. I always like my time there.

Was in Bath viewing a fine museum of a city house for the uber rich of the day. This onr was the most palatial...built by an absentee landlord from roscommon with money made off the backs of the irish serfs of the time that lived in absolute poverty. But the whole tour stick was best of british etc and not a mention of how the buildimg had been funded. A formal demand for reparations is in order.

I have to give it to them lately. They have a remarkable ability to make all politicians super intelligent... relative to their own.

90% of Irish football fans wank themselves silly over British teams and even refer to them as 'us' in a lot of cases, so there's that. GSTQ!
