Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

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

  8. Yorkshire.......a beautiful piece of real estate marred only by its inhabitants. Much like Wales, really, but slightly less so. Ay Oopers. The Aussies used to call the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry "The Fookers".

    It was the only thing about your strange dialect they could make out. Everything was "fookin' this an' fookin' that." :lol:
     
  9. I always thought it was Yorkshire on merit!
     
  10. and deep pockets. :lol:

    It really grips me that the Government introduced entirely fictitious administrative areas in 1974 in an attempt to split Yorkshire up. The true Yorkshireman still refers to the Ridings (even some of those in Sheffield, so far south they're almost cockneys), and since these are geographic areas they still exist, despite the politicians' attempts to wipe them out and assign bits of God's country to Cleveland and Humberside.

    The Ridings Society maintains the rights of Yorkshire. Yorkshire Day is 01 Aug, when the following declaration is made:

    Yorkshire is three Ridings and the City of York, with these Boundaries of 1124 years standing;
    that the address of all places in these Ridings is Yorkshire;
    that all persons born therein or resident therein and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshire-men and women;
    that any person or corporate body which deliberately ignores or denies the aforementioned shall forfeit all claim to Yorkshire status.
    God Save the Queen!

    It's still the finest part of all England, and so much better than a) Laandaan and b) that hideous industrial complex on t'other side of the Pennines.

    Bring on the Yorkshire Assembly!

    The whole country is full of ragheads. Thankfully the opportunities for people smuggling, benefit fraud and drug-dealing are few and far between in my bit of Yorkshire, and thus the raghead population is very small, so I shall await the formation of the Assembly and the passage of Bernoulli's Law at leisure....
