I am proud to come from Yorkshire. Its industrial past and heritage helped nurture me into the person I am. There are some lovely parts to this county. Even greater rovrum has its bits ...

I'm proud yes.... but in a way that I can appreciate Cornwall, caithness, Cumbria Derbyshire and their traditions. Yorkshireman and proud ... but not in a nationalist to the detriment of anywhere else kind of way....

 there is a county to the west we don't talk about like... Its best not to go there.

No one was any more proud than myself, stretching back over eighty years, but I am afraid, no longer. That's as much I am saying, or allowed to say considering all the PC content which is flying about.

Happy Yorkshire day, the county thats poisons dogs and wildlife. If this is Gods own county I’m glad I’m an atheist

Just googled Lancashire animal poisoning. Not a happy tale.

Fortunately Yorkshire gave you Rugby League - and its founding here has been eating away at you bitters ever since.

thats really bad and not just in yorkshire it seems. whats it about?

It’s interesting to note that this particular ‘cocktail’ isn’t restricted to use in Nidderdale; it has also been used on several estates elsewhere in England and Scotland. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to see whether there was a common link between these various estates, you know, something like a shared agent or perhaps a gamekeeper who’s worked on all the estates?

And another so very proud. I love Yorkshire and every thing about it, The countyside and Coast, the people, the archtcture, the food, the accent, our contributions to sport, RL and cricket. Football,.

 

Cannot believ anyone else would honestly have a contrary view. There are LOTS of other counties I also love very much.

Indeed.

And that's why it's seen as the epitome of rudeness to ask anyone if they're from Yorkshire. 

If they're not from Yorkshire,  you'll just embarras them into having to admit it in public, and if they are, they'll tell you soon enough.

If you wish to find a negative in something,  as you appear to be driven, then you will find one. Everywhere will have a dark side if you want to find one.

However, on yorkshire day I was happy to celebrate my heritage and the nice things about the county, just as I'm happy to share other peoples heritage and cultures. Its eid this week. Its been fun sharing that too.

Happy and proud to be a Yorkshireman.... 

Other places are lovely too

Ah. You are referring to The Dark Lands, @Robin Evans. Yes. Best not to go there. Brrrrrr.

What a glorious day for God to celebrate his own county with. 

Well put, @Tommygilf. I imagine He grinned & said "I did that", when looking down from a cloud. 😉
