Mr Pedantic would point out that the War of the Roses was between the Houses of York and Lancaster, not necessarily the counties:

Quote:
During the Wars of the Roses the people of Yorkshire were mostly on the side of the Lancastrians. The war was not between the counties but between the houses of York and Lancaster. The idea of the people of Yorkshire were mostly on the Yorkshire is a mistake partly due to the fact that the white rose is the modern-day symbol of Yorkshire and the cricket match between Yorkshire and Lancashire being known as the roses match.

But yes, they still do hate each other!

Hahaha, not true, as I said I quite like my Dad and he's a Lanc and I'm a Yorkie. I stand historically corrected metro2000, thanks.

Sorry, forgot about you and your dad! Only speaking from experience of my mates

Now scousers vs. mancs - there's two sets of people who definitely hate each other

I think the Yorkie/Lanc thing is mostly a good natured rivalry (fostered by sporting events such as cricket as you quite rightly say).

He works in Lancashire though.
PS, I'm a Yorkshireman living in Scotland whose Dad is a Lancastrian and we get along fine so maybe Pyndon won't be THAT upset!
There's no difference as far as us southerners are concerned, once you're north of Banbury they're all Northern Monkeys, admittedly some of them can ride a bike though......

Pretty cool images in the latest update, but in all those pictures, why is it nobody hovering over #43?

I always get pretty giddy this time of year simply because of the Dakar. This year I'm as giddy as a fookin preverbial kipper!!! I'm twittered and facebooked up to fook, got the Eurosport player purchased, wiped all my V box clear so I've got 100 hours of recording time.

I cannot bloody wait!!

Lyndon, I think you made the right choice on bikes for the Dakar. The ergonomics on Tami's XT were just a little off.
