Been there, did that, infact that is where I received the idea that "Scousers hate Scousers" who make good and move. It was an observation made by a number people, the vast majority being Scousers, one posting from a place called Gundagai, NSW., Australia. A Scouse herself, who emigrated with her husband and two children to Australia. They had two more children born in Australia when her husband died suddenly and prematurely. Having to become the breadwinner as well as the carer of the children she, somehow, made good. She started her own business and now employs others.We need to aggressively promote the City in a positive light on Facebook, Instagram, buzzfeed etc. IÂ’ve seen other cities doing it with sponsored ads etc. As stated above our leadership just constantly promotes negativity with no aspiration whatsoever. ItÂ’s like they revel in it.
She has ceased visiting Liverpool due to the snide remarks she receives from people who where once friends and even some relatives. And, she says, is all because she has succeeded in business, something she never dreamed she would do. But would forgo all the wealth in the world to have her beloved partner back again. I know from where she is coming from.
I thought it was only Scousers who settled in the USA who suffered the brunt of those snide remarks. Strange, because the amount of posts complimentary of the US by posters, usually after a short visit to NYC or the Magic Kingdom, are gushing and profuse.
I started taking notice of how many times I have been vilified on here just for having a comfortable life, without want. Mind you, I have not had anything handed to me and, in the beginning, in Canada I once worked three jobs at one time. I had a full time day job, worked part time in a plant that manufactured garden furniture and drove a cab on weekends and, when/if I had any spare time, delivered pizza, were my pay was tips. I am now enjoying the fruits of my labour and surprisingly, a latent acumen for investing and business.
The snide remarks, mostly from Scousers, on these threads are constant, numerous, repetitive and yes, irritating.
