Default Really quite cross indeed

I live on a council estate and have done since 1996. I am looking to buy my place this year. I like where I live, I like the people and I like the community spirit we have.

Most of the homes have at least one person in employment. Those that don't belong to retired people.

We had some trouble about 4 years back which culminated in a murder, after which we set up a Residents' Association and reclaimed the estate from the troublemakers. We have beautiful communal gardens and a wonderful communal centre where people can go to watch sports on a large screen, play ping pong or pool, and we have a couple of computers for those kids who don't have access to one at home.

All in all, I think we live in a very nice area.

So when I wrote a letter to my local paper, I was quite happy and proud to state where I live in my address.

The bit that has made me VERY VERY CROSS is that the newspaper took it upon themselves to edit my address to show that I lived in a posher adjacent road.

Who the bloody hell do they think they are?

Cheers for that link. I might very well use it, as I am really quite annoyed by this.
