Hi pit, I'll be working all summer at the cnh plant on an internship and I've no idea what Basildon is like? If anyone could share their thoughts I'd be very grateful. Also appreciate dick jokes.

It's not that bad. No worse than any of the other larger towns in Essex mate.

I just said shithole as a joke. I didnt even know where it is.

Now I see this, I can confirm that it is infact a shithole

Most of the towns in Essex are pretty bad. I've never been to Basildon, but i'm going to assume it's awful.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Never been to Basildon. My Dad lives in Essex and I think it's way nicer than Leicester, I mean Leicester's still home but it is a real dive in some places.

Also who cares if it's a shithole, for the mean time your internship and career is important. If you end up hating the place just remember this internship will probably lead you to newer more exciting places anyway.

Basildon is the arsehole of Essex, and Essex ain't exactly full of roses.

That cheesy sign should tell you all you need to know. It's next to a freaking roundabout. It's an utter shithole.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

been there, can officially confirm, shithole.

there's nothing to do if you're not into the *thump thump thump screech screech* club music...

don't get me wrong, it's not in the list of worst places to live, but that's beside the point

just keep yourself to yourself and i'm sure you'll be fine.

Having grown up there, I can say it's not that great. The Empire cinema however is awesome, do not bother going to the odeon in Southend. The sports village is also top class, nice big pool and climbing wall. Also you are at least only a short train ride away from London and the beaches at Chalkwell to Southend. Also Leigh on sea has some lovely cafes and boutiques if you want to go some where a bit more upmarket.

So many towns in the UK are a chav-infested shithole these days, so it's not big deal to find another

Never spent much time there.

Because I've heard it's a shithole.
