Autocomplete map of the UK

This post from buzzfeed is hilarious.

What do people most often ask about when they google British towns? How crap they are, of course.


Yes, Brighton is crap. I’m rather confused by that Stafford entry, however…

    Favourite has to be Worcester though, whatever that means.

    The ‘Lewes is racist’ probably comes from a Sunday Times Magazine article by David James Smith, which claimed that the town is a hotbed of racism because it has four BNP members. FOUR. Not exactly Kristallnacht, is it.

    In fairness, I should add that there was a little more evidence – all anecdotal – but it still seemed a strange claim given Lewes’s high quota of North London bien pensants. They don’t call it ‘Islington-on-the-Downs’ for nothing.

    The Earl of Stafford, Thomas Wentworth, was a major figure in the run to the English Civil War. He was a supporter of Charles and Lord Deputy of Ireland. Most famously, Charles signed his death warrant in an attempt to appease parliament after they failed to impeach Stafford. Therefore, Stafford is a man.
