Stems from the Noel Gallagher article + debate someone on here.
although i hated it when iwas there
your called northern from southerners
and southern from northerners
thats why midlands folk seem to hate everyone
Midlands = North.
Deal with it.
it's called the northern line for a reason; anywhere above camden is the north.
It's the Midlands.
Midlands = North
anything north of cambridge is north.
north of enfield.
actually, even enfield has a bit of the web-toes about it.
Londoners are the Texans of the UK.
are guilty of having completely distorted percpetions of the other end of the country. Southerners tend to think all northerners are stupid. Northerners often seem to base their view of southerners on things like Notting Hill and Eastenders. Also I have found northerners sometimes don't really 'get' the scale of Greater London.
isn't stoke on trent about the dividing line between north and south?
derby, stoke, leicester, nottingham, birmingham... they're all in the midlands, and anything roughly north of that (sheffield?) is northern, and anything south of that (northampton?) is southern.
geographically the centre of the landmass is about where york is, innit? or isn't it somewhere in northumberland like haltwistle, even?
I consider Derby, Nottingham and Stoke to be the North...
you're from a similar part of the world to me. if i was pushed i'd say north but from experience i know that they like to self-define as neither.
incorrect to think that.
stoke perhaps is a bit more northern but still is midlands really
derby and nottingham however? east mids yo
also i don't know who i prefer. i guess i don't really.
has anyone ever seen a southerner drink shandy?
i've only ever seen three people drink shandy, and they were all from the midlands.
does this mean to 'northerners', the midlands is in the south?
Birmingham definitely isn't the north...
I saw my mum drink shandy, and I did once when i was a kid
go back there then, COMMUNIST!
Southerners, southerners, southerners...
more than 100 miles west of Great Yarmouth.
EAST 4 EVA
No, I just Eva N' Dando!
talk to inbreds?
and I have webbed feet.
What do YOU think?
think if I ever need tax advice or swimming lessons that I'm coming to you
quack doesn't echo though, did you know that?
you have three legs like the flag?
They call me 'hoppity hop hop' for a reason.
scouse is just the language of love, isn't it?
in the same way that an overly posh southerner sounds awful.
tish and piffle.
WE'RE GOING TO SMASH THE OIKS! RA RA RA!
...to you Northerners and Southerners. Unless we're from Birmingham (its own sub-genre) we have no imitable accents, merely some annoying colliqualisms, and we're happy to mix southern modernism with northern not-giving-a-shitism. In a way.
So fuck off. We're Midlanders, Northerners are too obvious, Southerners are too pretentious.
Unless you're from Stoke on Trent, that place needs wiping off the earth :)
London is considered the North...
but in Cornwall and Devon electricity is also considered to be the Devil's work
and it's very definitely in the (East) Midlands, rather than being 'North' or 'South'.
Most Nottingham people prefer Northerners because we're more friendly...
Or maybe that's just what they say to me cos otherwise I'd punch em in the face. ;)
that sounds like a southerner. Does that make me a midlander?
accents are much better, i'm afraid.
the 'north' begins at york ... the idea that places like sheffield are in the north is LITERALLY 'insane'
Don't talk funny.
and they all smell.
