The hell? I thought the sun was allergic to the UK.


It occasional shows itself in the south, the northerners are a bit hardier with an extra layer of blubber, to help them through the tougher winters

One of the essential issues to be sorted out is the exact boundary-line between north and south.
I propose that it be defined by the word for "yes".
When people start saying "Aye", then we are in the north?

Just imagine what will happen when the UK get's it's own forum.

Sticky: TEA how to drink it.

Sticky: Bacon how to eat it....

Hmm - a tough one that.. I use "Aye" a lot and I am a born and bred Southerner.. Well, actually, I was born in Nottingham, but my family is from Cornwall/Devon...

Maybe where the letter "T" replaces the word "The" could be the line?

But then we have the Midlands as well, which are neither North or South, but a strange tribe of funny talking folk in their own right...

It will be just banter non-stop... banter and sarcasm and dry wit.

I was born in the midlands, no one ever thinks about us.

In the south I'm a northern monkey and in the north I'm a southern fairy.

Hmm, just spotted this thread and I am outraged to be honest.

Who the hell thinks they have the right to any influence in a new United Kingdom forum if they are yet to find agreement about the correct sauce for bacon sarnies, never mind questions remaining about how to make a proper cup of tea?!

I say to all those who have red sauce on a bacon bap, I will do everything in my power to prevent you polluting the new forum with your barbarous views and opinions.
For now I shall campaign for an ATS poll regarding the correct procedure with both tea and bacon bap making, then after the results are known, and only then, we start discussing who may or may not be part of the new UK forum.

Red sauce separatists have no place in my mind, BUT, if such people learn how to make a decent brew, we could find compromise somewhere...

Teabag in mug
Boiling water poured to 8 or 9 tenths of the way up while teabag stirred
Mug allowed to sit for 3 minutes
Milk added to beautiful light brown shade
1 teaspoon of sugar
Stirred well.

This will be the No Man's Land... the barren, desolate wasteland that divides our two great regions.

Well, no change there, I suppose.

a reply to: DISRAELI I was thinking about that this morning. I decided I wouldn't want to live any further north than Warwick, once your past Warwick your basically in Birmingham, which is too far

Hey, you're Welsh! Your opinion on bacon is questionable - we know what you do to your sheep!

Although you're bang on with your views on tea...

You lost all respect when you reffered to a "bap".

I'm sure that in your twisted little corner of the nation that is ok but your in the big world now.

Agreed on the red sauce though so if you can stop using odd words for what is obviously a COB then maybe a faction could be created.

Who needs sun when we spend most of our time Whippet racing, eating lard and our first born prior to attending our ancient place of worship, the pub, (something that will sadly soon be all but a memory replaced by the modern monstrosities of theme bars, wine bars or bastard nail bars - all of which for the record are Southern inventions!).

I remember as a youngster working for a season at Butlin's in Ayr, which got campers from across the border.
I responded to a request with "Yes, I will" (I think), and the man turned to his wife and said "This lad here's from south of t'Ribble". That brings in both points.

Alternatively there is "sofa v settee".

I once saw a very academic map breaking up the country into regions based on the word used for making tea. It was "brewing" in one region, "mashing" in another, and so on.

See, as a "pad brat" I was brought up with both sofa and settee - I still don't know what is the correct parlance!
