People often move away from Yorkshire and then move back because the modern world scares them :P

As my kids say "Epic Fail" ;)

Never use two or three words when a couple of thousand will easily do.

im yorkshire first and formost and i suppose that makes me english but its only yorkshire i feel any aligance to in my heart.
my son and his wife who had been living in the usa for 3 years came back to yorkshire so my grandson could be born in yorkshire and his wife loves the county so much they have moved here back for good now..

after all theres only 3 kinds of people in the world those born in yorkshire, those that wish they were born in yorkshire and those that dont count.

its also a fact that if hitler had come to yorkshire instead of liverpool there would have been no 2nd world war as he would have soon realised there was already a master race there called yorkshire folk


And people say education standards have declined and grammar and spelling ain't wot it waz.

I have heard it said "Yorkshire born, Yorkshire bred, strong i'th arm, weak i'th head"

I've also heard it said that they Yorkshiremen's motto is , ‘Hear all, see all, say now't, tak' all, keep all, gie now't, and if tha ever does ow't for now't do it for thysen.’

Not true I'm sure.

Anyway , counties past present and future are merely administrative constructs designed to make running an area more convenient for whoever was, is or will be in charge. So no, no loyalty.

Life is like a sewer: What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.

It's YORKSHIRE,there is no A in it,and even when it's pronounced it doesn't sound like an A, :rolleyes: :P
And a previous poster complained education standards slipping,they certainly have on the cold, wet,miserable side of the Pennines(that's Lancashire by the way).
All good fun.

It said on the news this morning that the M62 in the Leeds Bradford conurbation is the busiest road in Britain.

I reckon the congestion problem could be solved by limiting the amount of outsiders desperately trying to get here every day.

Of course, it could be argued that the traffic might include people trying to get out. But that theory can be readily discounted because, when you think about it, there's really not many other places worth going to.

;) :D

My observation was based upon deducing the poster's age rather than his geographic origin. I'm a very proud Yorkshireman who's sure that education standards have risen dramatically in all English counties.

Listen, the history of season '45/46 has been written (and re-written) so many times no one has a clue what the #### was going on. The only certain thing was that the far-northern counties had a great regular season, but got absolutely stuffed in the play-offs.

But their spelling (they're not there) and lack of appropriate capital letters proves otherwise.

Born in a industrial town, first generation of my family not to build trains for a living (that'll be manual labour) and that was only because the railway works were shut down, never worked behind a desk (apart from at school) never pushed a pen (apart from at school), worked in a couple of factories and now self employed (if I don't work I don't get paid, no holiday or sick pay) and didn't need a dictionary to notice your errors as I remember things I learnt at school.

But as a born and bred southerner I obviously fall under your southern stereotype so I must be mistaken.

Also, Wiltshire is God's County!
