Really feel sorry for your friend, but looks like he hasn't done his homework - 5 minutes on Internet would help him to find a more student-friendly place in Leeds.

Do you think Harehills is worse than Benwell? Or Elswick? Having lived in Benwell, which I believe has the cheapest houses in the country, I can tell you it's far worse.

Anyway it's a ridiculous thread, if the point was to say that there are less wealthy areas in Leeds, well, we kinda knew that, if to have a go at LN1, you need to try harder and find Harehills area in Harrogate first

Yes; its really annoying- when I was in France and trying to type I got used to it eventually, but then when I came back here, I was in French mode! Same with Spain.
