Hmmm, I'll wait for the "can only cockneys ever be w*nkers" thread ;)

;D ;D ;D

You'd need to define posh first.
I'd have to question are the Ruperts and floppy fringed individuals actually posh or just spoilt brats or even worse pretentious?

If you look right across the country there are "posh" areas in every conurbation and surrounding countryside. The risk is that premiersh*t footballers tend to live in the posh areas and I'd have to say that northern or southern, they're definitely not posh.

Yep,Shy.There's an enormous difference between 'Posh' and'Chav',and most footballers and their WAGS fall into the second catagory.

if this is going to start a north south divide thing.please dont get me involved, O0
right rant over 

No-one - I think  ??? - said that there was anything 'wrong' with "up there".  My observations were that northerners from all income groups appeared to have the same accents (for example) whereas in southern England there was more of a class divide. The stereotypical upper middle-class type appears not to exist north of Henley-in-Arden.

Re: Nottinham. I'm a frequent visitor (and love the city centre*) but the accent has much more in common with south Yorkshire than it does with, say, Leicester. That makes it north in my estimation, no matter how East Midlands it thinks itself.

I am absolutely not going to comment on this news story from overnight  :-X


Researchers say they have evidence that Northerners have lower hygiene standards than Southerners. Their study suggests that the hands of people in the North of England are up to three times more likely to be contaminated with toilet bugs than those of people in the South.

Hmmm the term "news story" used in the loosest sense methinks.

And talking of loose, perhaps Northerners wipe their backsides after sitting down at the toilet whereas Southerners don't ?  ;D ;D ;D

If you ever watched the F*cking Fulfords you will know that poshness and cleanliness do by no means neccesarily go together
