What's Wrong With The South (of The UK)

Thu Jan 17, 2008 7:10 pm

As Nighthawk has thrown down the gauntlet in the thread Welcome Back Myt332! (by Nighthawk Jan 14 2008 in Non Aviation) , I am here to ask for your support. He claims, naively, that Scotland is better than the South, and that by starting this thread it will quickly become the most popular thread in Non-Av, as he thinks the South is a dump, and Scotland is beautiful. He is wrong... obviously.

Therefore, I would like to ask you to pledge your support for the South in this thread. Obviously just like the Fox News Channel, this thread will be kept fair and balanced, and therefore all anti-Southern posts will have the Suggest Deletion button pressed against them  Smile

OK, let the Southern-bashing begin...

Oh and for the record, unfortunately I spend my time equally between said North and South, so please don't think I'm being anti-Northern  biggrin

Is this an appropriate moment to quote Dr. Johnson (of dictionary fame)?

Furthermore, where does the South stop? Surely before the Scottish border! As I see it, the South of England stops somewhere south of Birmingham, and the North begins from there on, although it is interrupted by the presence of Yorkshire (whose residents are so resolutely independent that they may well be demanding a flag on here soon), and continues up to the border. Scotland in my mind is something different altogether. It's not The North. It's just Scotland.

The South is the place to be!!

Especially Sittingbourne in Kent, where I spent the first 19 years of my life. Now I've been living a year up in Accrington, Lancashire I miss it so much.

I miss being able to just go into London when I get bored, everyone speaking properly and fully, and I don't know if this makes sense but the South has a better atmosphere. It's cheery and even the place names sound different.

Also I miss being able to see for miles without having to stare into the side of a mountain/hill.

Eugh, please don't remind me about that place, it's bad enough that I live there! If including other regions such as Midlands, East and South West etc... then it does indeed begin south of Brum, aside of that there are no administrative boundaries to definately say something is north or south of that, so I guess we'll just have to have a bun fight to try and decide the matter. Please note - eating the buns will lead to an automatic disqualification.

I was born in Brighton, East Sussex, and now live in Widnes, Cheshire. I work in Liverpool. I love the South of England, and would love to move back down there. Not sure that I would love to Sussex, its far too expensive these days, but I would love to live somewhere like Oxford. However, there are some places in the North that are equally as nice - I adore Liverpool, and MAN wins my vote over LHR any day of the week! I have only flown through LHR once, and hated every moment of it! Okay, it was Terminal One, but I have been forever scarred by this horrendous experience!

There are areas of Scotland that I like, and areas that I detest. All in all, I would say the South wins the vote with me (and even though I have spent all but four years of my life living in the North, I will always class myself as a Southerner!)

Ah, my condolences to you  Wink Actually, the most Southerly mountains in the Biritsh Isles are on Dartmoor; in the UK a mountain is considered to be a pice of land which extends to more than 2000ft over sea level, meaning there are a couple there.

Been a northerner almost all my life; been living in Oxford for about a year I have no real complaints about the south; though it is a little more expensive.

Though one thing that does rile me is people in the Home Counties complaining about poor public transport - they should try living in Morecambe, and then their complaints about poor services might just be heard!

Plus, the south is a long way to drive from Morecambe  Silly

As a born and bred Southerner who has lived all over the country (and that includes Scotland AND Wales!), I have to say I prefer the peace and quiet of Lincolnshire, the solitude of a remote Scottish glen or the wild, wet Welsh hills around Brecon. But, here I am, back in Horley, a place that has changed beyond belief since I left to join the RAF 35 years ago. I'm living in a flat I used to deliver papers to as a young stud (Well, I would have been - honest!)

But even here, with LGW on the doorstep and getting harder to spot at by the minute, I can find pretty little villages that are quintessentially English, I can find quiet rolling hills just a few miles from here and winding country lanes that belie the fact that a dirty great airport lurks only a few miles away.

Fact is, I can find places all over the United Kingdom - North, South, East or West - that I like and would live in. So, for me, there is only a North/South divide in the banter and piss-taking I indulge in wherever I roam.

So bicker and score points all you like kiddies, but just make sure you enjoy it before the whole place is turned into a bloody great car park which the Goverment will charge you for the privelage of using. Big grin

It's like this. The South and the Midlands are boring. The south east countryside is all very pretty and lovely but it undulates boringly so you never know just how far you are from anywhere, and you never really know where the coast is. And it's full of boring 1930s suburbia. Hemel Hempstead anyone....?  Big grin

On the other hand, anywhere north of about Stoke or Derby is God's country.

I thank you.

Not read the whole thread, but the South is crap because they cannot pull a decent pint of bitter. No sparklers on the spouts, so they pull it flat !!!. WTF is that all about ??.

Also too many people in the SE of England, too many cars, too many traffic jams, house prices too high.....

Yorkshire, now thats THE best place in the UK. Rolling countryside, and major city centres can be reached in 10 mins if you live in the right place, and we have the best fish and chips and can pull a decent pint, not as many people living there, cheaper house prices and less traffic !!.

And Leeds has an airport that was modelled on an aircraft carrier - what more could you ask for ?.

It's ok, Her Majesty's Constabulary are on full alert. You won't get past Carlisle.

And Leeds has an airport that was modelled on an aircraft carrier

And so does the South - Biggin Hill.

Even more than Biggin Hill we have London City, where you really do come in high and steep - if you miss you're in the water, and if you don't tell them you're on your way an air defence group comes to shoot you down.  Wink

And just because I have a Southern accent I'm called a cockney

If you're from East Kent like me, half the rest of the country thinks you're Australian.  Yeah sure

Quoting LHRjc (Thread starter):
Scotland is better than the South

I visited Edinburgh and Glasgow, in combination with Newcastle which to me whenever England is in the NORTH, some years ago in July. It in London has been comfortably warm while it up there was rather cold, like in early winter . Edinburgh indeed IS beautiful, and the citycentre of Glasgow is nice at least.

I therefore in Britain prefer Southern England with London, Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter, Bournemouth, Arundel and Dover.

Scotland... isn't that what you see out of the right window when you're flying, say, AMS-JFK? duck

you ought rather to see Wales and Ireland, usually at least

Apart from the castle (which is stunning), Dover's an absolute hole!
