I cannot expunge it from my past. I lived in Moe for year or so. Explains a lot hey. While your mental image of Moe is probably partly correct, Moe is not all bad. Some people were even quite proud of the town and there was much to be proud of. Council elections used to be hard fought between Tories and Labor. There were some posh shops and Mrs Slocombe types. There was an active historical society. It is rather sad that that a response to mentioning Moe now is rather than where is it, as it used to be, to now be 'oh'.
Its image certainly wasn't helped this week by a woman who managed to get her five year old lad drunk, .09, by feeding him shots of grappa. Yes, there are people like her in Moe, but don't judge the city just by the media portrayal.
