  • Man I thought that East Belfast was a narrow minded we UFF'er wanna be scum hole, but Lisburn is the crown holder in that. For that wild west " we don't want yer kinda around here stranger" feeling, Lisburn can't be beaten. Cep't with an iron bar or a hammer and some spent casings. If your out late watching a knife fight at the ever so charming Pipers Quay, then why not use local Wee hoddy McUFFer's 'Death driver cabs' to get home. Once you step over the fresh corpses of those who couldn't dive outa the way fast enough, you can get into the cab and admire its 1980's Ford Capri style, all while the world hurtles past at about 90 miles an hour. Don't let the odd bump of pedestrian, or the fact that yer on the pavements distract you from chugging bucky and feeding the horse in the back of the cab with your delightful died blond Lisburn 'bone smuggler' companion. Lisburn, fuck me if it ain't just paradise!
