Jeff Reid: Northumberland council boss apologises for calling home town Blyth a "dump"
4 Mar 2013 00:00
A council boss last night apologised to 35,000 people in his home town after branding them dump dwellers.
Lib Dem leader of Northumberland council Jeff Reid angered voters in the historic port of Blyth by saying he would never shop there.
The Plessey representative said at a business forum: “I live in Blyth and Blyth is a dump so I drive to Cramlington to shop.”
Furious Blyth Valley Labour MP Ronnie Campbell said: “Jeff Reid has a nerve. He’s having a go at his own town and talking it down. He is hammering people who are striving to make a go of their businesses.”
A couple of colleagues are from Blyth, I'm looking forward to a bit of office trolling about this when they are in tomorrowCramlington is shit as well. Decent butchers and markets in Blyth though... but it is a fuckign dump, parts of it look like the projects in The Wire.
I had to laugh at this, coley will probably have spotted it too
It is a dump, literally,the CC are trying to dump the GRT community there and many of the people with learning difficulties who are being 'resettled,in the community end up there,as do many with drug and alcohol problems.
