    Yorkshire has all the warmth and welcome of syphilis.
    😀

    Don’t get me wrong,it’s a beautiful place, sadly ruined only in one minor respect.

    British Columbia or Savoie

    I would have chosen Yorkshire, and like the lucky lads posting above, I was. I only live in scotchland cos I invaded and married a local lass.

    Yer just can’t say of in place of have if you’ve been brought up properly. And that means to use big fat flattened vowels.

    It disgusts me…

    Does it matter? I’m just glad to be English 🙂

    Although, that said, Nottinghamshire was about right for me. Wouldn’t want to HAVE been born in somewhere full of grumpy old fekkers like, err, Yorkshire…… 😛

    Liverpool. Yes I know it isn’t a county but as a cultural and geographical reference, it’ll do just fine.

    Don’t consider myself ‘English’..

    You would if you were.

    It’s about pride, a feeling of belonging; that unspoken knowledge that your just better. To the outside world we’re much like the Scots, but with the generosity removed. If your on the inside though, it’s mint.

    Take the 2012 Olympics, for example; if Yorkshire was a country it would’ve been around 9th in the medal table – and we didn’t even use Peter Sutcliffe in the Hammer..!

    Born in Devon and proud of my roots, just wish I still lived there, maybe one day, until then Dorset will have to do.

    Happy with Nairobi on my birth certificate. If it’s good enough for that other cyclist fella from Kenya….

    I’m pretty happy in Surrey, but then I suspect I would have been pretty happy had my mum’s side of the family stayed up in Notts/south Yorkshire.

    And then I’ve enjoyed time spent living in Hampshire and Leicestershire. So I suppose I’m pretty easy to please. Maybe not Norfolk though.

    Perthshire -> result

    Born in Durham & proud of it, & Durham Cathedral makes York Minster look like a bothy.
    I currently live in North Yorkshire, which is great but I don’t get all the ‘I’m from Fantastic Yorkshire & I’m fantastic’ bollox.
    Folk who go on like that sound like Texans. I work with loads of Yorkshire lads & lasses & most of it’s tongue in cheek!

    Anywhere but Essex, I’m not a cockney, I don’t have a spray tan, and I can read and write and tell the time.

    I would have chosen Kent. Parts of Kent are beautiful. Nice and close to mainland Europe and some reasonable riding.

    Anywhere but the south east or midlands.

    One is a horrible place the other is filled with horrible people.

    The one I was born in – Oxfordshire. I’m sure the people are jesting about the south east being uniformly horrible. It is deeply unpleasant in parts, but in others….

    Quite happy with Wiltshire, fairly easy to get to lots of other places, and it’s got lots of history and beautiful places to go.

    Well flamed for not being brought up right
    People not knowing that country is different to county
    People wanting to live somewhere because its closer to another country
    Worserist of all someone thinking Kerry is better than Cork
