To be honest, no I didn't read the first part of your post, I scanned it.
Is there really any need to be so bloody sarcastic and rude?
In answer to your question, how does anyone else on a.net know whether an OU

If you really want to know, do some research on O&D figures between the two, and maybe find out the numbers of Croatian immigrants in NW
England, for example.
