The Stuff We Can't Fit In Somewhere Else
  • Seriously, don't come here. Treat is a s living Chernobyl with residents to match.
  • Does Barking really need any more greasy heart-attack causing take away stores? They keep on springing up and they should be illegal,you might as well eat poison. No wonder Barking is full of fat slags with 7 kids in tow and fat thick slobs. Billy Bragg once said that playing guitar was his passport out of Barking. Good for him. I have worked like an idiot for the past few years trying to get out and am finally on the way out (and probably paying for most of those 369 passengers to buy their fags) and I am proud to say I hate Barking
  • What they should do to Barking is wipe it off the face of the earth, with every scrounger, druggie, pikey, scumbag in it.
  • Used to be a nice place to live and I'm glad I moved away!
  • A man was once arrested for cutting a lemon anti clockwise in violation of the ancient by law set up in 1900 to stop German lemons being sold. It didn't work as British lemons are too sour and lack the flesh of a ripe German lemon. French ones are worse though.
