Ha ha ha...yes I'm up North ... says Consett!! Not grim neither and nothing a gin don't put right....

bit more location info needed for some of you....being a geographer I am just interested but also it is interesting to note whether there are spatial patterns ... albeit not very scientific due to mega migration.

I posted on fb yesterday a fab poster saying...we eat southerners up here and dip them in gravy!!

North by birth and London by adoption but I have never seen chips and gravy. There is this pagan custom down south of occasionally serving them without vinegar.

Hi Folks....Us Northerners are by far superior...there is life north of Watford....I realise I may have been rather insulting...grim up North? (was really meant as I'm up North and was having a grim time, feeling down coz of a cold and lost me mojo and just hd stuff getting me down). Sorry...ooh and now I've insulted Southerners!!! Tip to self: engage brain before twiddling...........

The penchant round here is for chips smothered in curry gravy...and sausages deep-fried in batter....not tried either. The choice of alcohol though Banda seems to be gallons of lager for the young men, bottle after bottle of WKD for the young ladies and Jagerbomb it all up before staggering down the chippy for a kebab on a Saturday nite!! That's why I stay at home....

Me too...like it at home with hubby...a bottle of shiraz or similar and a proper beer (brewed locally of course!) for hubby. I agree we have it grand up north.... lots of mates down south are very jealous of our landscape, standard of living and disposable income....but then I'm biased....

My six-penneth with scraps

I managed to escape from the cold, wet and windy North over 50 years ago. I return regularly - and it’s not quite as grim as it once was – they’ve been introduced to indoor privies and central heating [each member of the family has a turn at sucking a Fisherman’s Friend]. The coal mines, the shipyards, the mills and factories, the iron and steel works have all, in the main, migrated to China.

The biggest difference, as sub-sections of the UK, is that Northerners, individually and as a whole, are much more friendly, engaging and accommodating than those South of the Great Divide [that’s my son’s view too]. That’s not to say that Southerners are less friendly – but, possibly, less neighbourly. People from Wales and the West are equally as friendly as Northerners, as are East Anglians. So, I think those with a true identity and knowledge of their local\regional history would always come out on top.

Here are Amanda’s proofs: www.pendlewitches.co.uk + www.pendlewitches.net/page8.html!!

Cor blimey, mate! What a load of tripe! N, S, E & W – I love ‘em all!
