IT’S official, Cambridge is shit.
According to a new study, the ancient university city is the blandest town in Britain, with its historic streets dominated by national chain stores. Apparently, there are only nine varieties of shop along Cambridge’s main high street, making it the wost “clone town” in the country.
“A bland homogeneity and encroaching vacant premises characterise the city’s shopping centre,” the New Economics Foundation said in a report.
Couple that with the high proportion of condescending 20-year-old silver-spoon students who walk around with their toffee-noses permanently pointing skyward and a genetic disposition to feel superior to the working classes and, voila, there’s your shittest city. Not that we’re bitter or anything.
