Give Derbyshire a coastline

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Ffyll, Apr 14, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Obviously the residents of Derbyshire have for too long been with out a coastline. The only question is whether to get rid of Lincolnshire or Wales and Birmingham to help these poor people.
     
  2. Global warming will do it anyway. But, having been brought up in Lincolnshire, I know that no-one will miss it.
     
  3. You leave Brummagem alone, we are in enough trouble as it is. Anyway, we are to far above sea level for it to work. If you drown Brum, you will lose all of Warwickshire and Worcestershire as well. :D
     
  4. Everybody needs low value casinos on a crappy beach and shops selling beach balls, spades, toy guns, real guns and 13 year old girls. Why do you think people go to Scarborough?
     
  5. Why the fcuk does Derbyshire need a coastline? By all means drown the whole of Lincolnshire. Nobody would miss that. But Derbyshire is probably fine as it is. (Unless taboo wants to be able to sit on her back step and see the sea as she necks taboos quietly on a sunny evening)

    As for Wales, that is God's own country and is perfect as it is.
     
  6. To make them feel good about living somewhere else?
     
  7. How miserable. Look I can't believe people don't support my great idea. I have visited Derbyshire at least twice and it definitely needs a coastline, end of.
     
  8. I say flood Derbyshire instead. Who needs it anyway?

    This way we can have a coastline in Brum and a good time will be had by all.

    Derbyshire, fuck 'em.
     
  9. Half the population of Derbysire already think they have a coastline at Carsington Water and many of those think the other side is the Americas, the word insular is almost as understated there as it is in Sheffield where they think the universe ends at the M1. I only pop in and out Derby for work on the (thankfully) odd occasion, never ask for directions unless you want to be greeted with that "there be dragons" stare.
     
  10. Derbyshire definately needs a coast, then, hopefully, the feckin shithole will slide in to the depths.
     
  11. Oi!!Bloody nice we are ya know!Even if most do talk like Mr deputy :wink:

    Dragons stare? :eek:

    Carsington water?I always thought staunton harold on my doorstep was the coastline.It as boats :D
     
  12. But if you got rid of Lincolnshire, then all the portugeuse and poles who have moved there will come to your county and steal your underpaid crap jobs! Leave them where they are in the arrse end of the country and get rid of wales if derbyshire is in desparate need of a coastline!
     
  13. Here be Dragons

    Obviously living in Rutland I can afford to be a bit stuck up about our near neighbours who hail from Derbyshire, it's all part of the outrageous council tax rule. :wink:

    I've spent a fair bit of time staring at the pretty narrowboats near you at Zouch (whilst I wait at the bloody roadworks to miss my Aberdeen bound plane at the airport)
     
  14. Debris - shire: Went to boarding school there and thought it was a very nice place; some very picturesque cundry soide.

    What's that accent all about? I visited Buxton recently, School Old Boys' Do, and they make me, a Yorkshireman, sound positively well spoken.

    Flooding the county would get rid of the more comon parts (Derby & Chesterfield) and leave the best bits.
     
  15. I like Rutland so maybe we could get somebody to raise it up a bit when Derbyshire gets flooded. I don't think it was any coincidence that 'The League of Gentlemen' was made near Glossop.

    I reckon Cheshire should get it as well.
