The saying goes, things will get worse before they get better.

In my eyes things will get worse before they will get worse still.

I had some time on my hands so I went for a walk around Sunderland. What I saw was Sunderland is becoming a dump, Southwick Road is a big mess and Southwick Green is also a dump. High Street West, Holmeside, even Fawcett Street are ruined.
