So you blame your childhood problems on you down there, too? After all, we're no different from you, eh? Then we agree on something.

As well as being illiterate, you contradict yourself, too. Like Brian Gower, I've lived in quite a few places in the south, and whilst it's mainly the Home Counties and London I really classify as the Southern Enemy, I know from experience that northerners are not like southerners. Different values, different approach, different worldview.

For your enlightenment and education:

2. Informala. tough, realistic
b. cynical

Got it?

Next....

a "Gobsh*te" is a specific term where I come from for a northerner who has turned southerner, for example. A Scouse Tory, for example. Someone pretending to be of a social group or class he/she is not.

I once saw the Conservative Club in Bangor, North Wales, sprayed with graffiti, saying "Welsh Tory Gobsh*tes". Says it all, really.

Got it? Good. Next...

I stated that "South Eastern Culture" is an "oxymoron".

Quote:
oxymorona rhetorical device or figure of speech in which contradictory or opposite words or concepts are combined for effect. — oxymoronic, adj.
For example, a short giant. OK with that?

Some noteworthy points intended to help you out:

1. Don't take offence at words and expressions you don't understand.
2. Don't frequent historum if you've had a sense of humour bypass.
3. ESPECIALLY don't take any notice of my posts if you have no sense of humour.

Your post had nothing to do with a sense of humour. Don't pretend otherwise. I've seen enough of your posts to know what you think of the English people. I quoted you, don't make excuses and pretend you were joking. It's pathetic.

I don't think anyone is offended by your post, well certainly not from me and other people that have put their input in this thread. I think you take offense very easily, it is so easy to take the wrong end of the stick.

You quoted me wrong, since some big words and phrases you plainly don't understand were involved.

I AM one of the English people, so I can say what I like about them, especially when specimens like you, who plainly struggle with your OWN language, come along and confirm my statements.

I often say such people are stupid and humourless. Then you come along. It's like pulling rabbits out of hats.

What your type think is of supreme indifference to me. YOU are kidding yourself if you think the England and English you get so misty eyed over still exist, and it wasn't the "immigrants" who ruined it, it was the majority themselves.

I am a northerner but you'll find I'm not actually English. So I blame nothing of my childhood on any English citizens at all and in fact, I AM very different from you being that I'm actually American (coincidentally, I am from the north of the US, technically making me northern). So from a completely third party point of view, looking in on this petty swabbling, I have to say you sound just as bitterly fascinated with and resentful of northerners as you are hypocritically claiming they are of you. I repeat: get over yourself. Do you think resorting to profanity will somehow prove how hardened and working class you are?

I was born in Texas.
Why shouldn't you be proud of your grandfather being a soldier? He fought for what he believed in. These days you can rarely find people who believe in anything and if they do, they don't want to fight for it.

This post and the original by Tokeprophecy got me thinking....How'd I feel if I'm in Toke's place ?!

I thought I'd still be proud of my Grandfather....I'd think he stood for what he believed (or what is available or present) as representing his country at that time....Even today or in the recent past people will differ in how they see their country in the future and what's the best approach....Is Socialism/Capitalism or a mix...Is it the Republicans/Democrats ?
