    We often get a bad press here in Liverpool, think this boss video shows us in our true light! 😀

    It’s been a while since I went through Central station, do they still have girls there who pretend to chat you up while their boyfriend nicks your wallet?

    Sorry Tim, found a bit painful myself.

    Samuri I suspect you have made that up.

    Pigface you do know that your statement doesn’t make any sense don’t you?

    Unfortunately not. I went to Poly in Liverpool and worked there for three years. The girls were more likely to hang around Lime Street but their typical MO would be to approach a likely looking lad as he left the station, first ask for a light or directions and then pretend she fancied him.
    If she started getting a positive response she’d signal her boyfriend/pimp/brother who would then start following the couple. Once outside the victim would either be subjected to a simple mugging or pickpocketing while the chap was distracted. A number of our lads got done in this way until word got around. At one stage you could almost guarantee it would happen every time you got off a train.

    edit: Be approached by a girl that is, not get mugged. In retrospect, I assume a number of the girls were just working instead.

    I could calmly shoot anyone in the face that is involved in a flash mob. The unbridled joy and enthusiasm makes me boil with rage like nothing else.

    Ha – not my thing, but looks like harmless spontaneous fun and that can’t be bad, right?

    It’s not spontaneuos though. I hate organised wackiness.

    oh and I like Liverpool, never had a problem there.

    haha knew this would attract the haters

    Just to clarify, the video title says flash mob, but the descriptions actually confirms its spontaneous which is what makes it kinda cool, just pointing out we are a friendly bunch 😀

    Sounds more like the “wire” to me. interesting anecdote though.

    I grew up in Liverpool and also went to University there, traveling into Liverpool everyday from Fazakerley, either on a bike or train. Never heard of this practice.

    I’ve got loads more like that if you want.
    From the porn films being shot in the Adelphi, through the pubs with proper drug ‘shops’ in the back to the city centre clubs using organised crime, hells angels for bouncers who weren’t adverse to stabbing people up the arse to teach them a lesson.

    I tell you, for a country lad, Liverpool was a massive eye opener.

    Uh, I think it was to spread the good word CFH. 😉 That’s proper public service, that is.

    Macca and Ringo, apparently, still really miss the place. But they accept that their role as Liverpool ambassadors mean they have to be elsewhere, in luxury mansions with cool cars and random hotties. It’s not much of a life to be honest.

    My wife saw Paul McCartney in Heswall Tesco a couple of months back 🙂

    Yeah, he’s got a place there, facing the Dee, or so I’m told.

    Even then, he’s forced to have windows that look out the wrong way, at Wales rather than back at his beautiful spiritual home. Oh the humanity. 😥

    EDIT: I’ve lived in Liverpool for 12 years and I’ve still only heard the word ‘BOSS’ once or twice… but then I’ve rarely seen spontaneous dad dancing either. Maybe I live in the wrong neighbourhood.

    When was this then? Im guessing quite a long time ago

    you know similar kinds of things happen in all major cities don’t you?

    @ timc – Aigburth.

    I’m married to a Liverpool lass, who doesn’t say ‘boss’ or ‘la’. Neither does anyone else in her family or, come to think about it, any of my workmates.

    Not that those who occupy my immediate surroundings speak for the city as a whole, you understand… 😉

    Yep, I’ve got some good stories about Manchester as well.

    During the late 80’s, early 90’s Liverpool was incredibly run down, really a very nasty place indeed. An largely corrupt council teamed with runway unemployment and absolutely no government buy in to regenerate created an appalling culture within the city. At the time Scousers didn’t help by being incredibly insular and suspicious of anyone who didn’t talk like them and having huge amounts of contempt for anyone further out than Widnes.

    The very fact you have post a topic like this just reinforces how much of a turdhole Liverpool is.

    Uh-huh. Well, that’s certainly an opinion. 😯

    You have EVERYTHING about it? You hate the historic waterfront, the parks, the Liverpool One shopping centre? EVERYTHING, huh?

    I’m not over keen on Sheffield, but I’m sure I’d fine SOMETHING to like. 🙄

    Always have, always will.

    And the last time you were here was…?

    Why is Liverpool airport named after John Lennon…..
    …it’s the first place he went when he got some money.

    Sure do. I will never set foot in Liverpool again as long as I live. It’s called illogical pathological hatred.

    And the last time you were here was…?

    15th April 2012. Got dragged to the Hillsborough Memorial Service by my ex who for reasons best known to herself was a die-hard Red Shite fan despite having no connections to Liverpool whatsoever. I only agreed to go because I am a football fan and Hillsborough was a football tragedy, not just a Liverpool tragedy.

    It was pure torture. I’ve never witnessed such a maudlin, hand-wringy, self-absorbed, schmalzy, insincere display of cod grief in all my life. I wanted to vomit. It made a mockery of the whole thing.

    Needless to say this is why she is now my ex and buried under the patio.

    What does ‘boss’ mean?

    I’m not particularly keen on Liverpool either, I thought it was a dump; I was last there in the late 80s, early 90s – maybe I should venture back for a nosey?
