    I give it about 5 mins before the lines need redrawing…

    The elephant in the room of course is, what the hell do we do about Birmingham?

    Don’t be so pessimistic. A great nation is about to be born. As leader, I will ensure we take our rightful place in the world.

    Lets be brutally frank: has anyone ever actually noticed it during their lifetime? Exactly! Let us never speak of this again.

    what the hell do we do about Birmingham?

    As official spokesperson for the yet to be named newly formed Northern Superpower, I have a statement from the north, addressing this issue.

    “Not our problem.”

    Thank you.

    Re Birmingham – as per my earlier post – just turn the M6 tolls into a border post, the rest can be ‘no mans land’ like the DMZ between N & S Korea. One side patrolled on foot by men in flat caps with whippets, the other by people called Nigel and their labradors in 4x4s.

    I fell over it by mistake once when I was trying to escape back from the south but the M6 and M6T were shut. Can’t say I’d want it.

    I’m not sure there is an argument for extending the Northern Republic south beyond Yorkshire and Lancashire.

    Seems a bit harsh on the Welsh mind you but neatly sidesteps “The Birmingham Question”

    Be much easier to just include the north, Cumbria, Northumberland Co Durham and maybe a bit of N Yorks.

    Oh, and as a resident of Nidderdale, we could have Janet Street Porter deported as an undesirable alien right?

    I don’t care.

    North Wales is non negotiable.

    I’ll show my arse in parliament before I have to show a passport to get to the ice crean shop and chippy in Llanberis.

    Oi! I’ve been appointed Ministry for Pastry remember. I take my responsibilities very seriously. We have to think of sustainable pie fillings.

    I sell them, but they’re aimed at tourists, so utter gash if we’re honest.

    We could ask Northern Ireland if they’d like to join too, but I suspect that they would politely decline. What do you think?

    Do you not think we have enough problems with a two way choice, another variable would have the place in even more chaos. We are out….

    However we can do you a very good lease deal on water canons, armored Land Rovers and a well trained police force. Recently tested in the field and in good going order, as pictured below.

    The terms of the lease are that the new Republic of Scotnorth doesn’t come into being next July as above resources are likely to be busy. Many thanks.

    Oi!, who said we could lose Lancashire? Lancashire stays, along with the ‘old Lancashire’ cities. South Yorks could maybe be lost if the line goes from the Mersey to th’umber. We could give North Wales ‘special friend’ status, or something. Birmingham cannot be considered North, I’m afraid.

    Carlisle’s the capital then?

    Premier Icon unklehomered

    Good idea from Mark Thomas’ manifesto, the Capital moves every 5 years, making all politicians live in the most deprived area of the nation, and so incentivised to improve things for the people. So long as we’re building a new nation, lets not fall into the old traps!

    Birmingham could be a fenced off game reserve where the Yarkshire rich can go hunting from the back of machine gun equipped Toyota pick-ups.

    The Stockport hat industry could be revived by making trophies that they could wear on their heads.

    So basically, we’ve got the Northern territories (Great Britain), the Southern (Little Britain) and Brum as the Neutral Zone. I like it.

    Hey, we could wall it off and use it as a prison state?

    I’m shocked that someone wanted to exclude Lancashire. Holland’s Pies, man. (And Clayton Park, who are superior but less well known).

    No Lancashire and Yorkshire are included

    Where is Sheffield, that could be t’frontier

    Indeed cougar – You can’t exclude the county that gave the world Warburtons toastie loaf. Simply the best 2 slices of bread you can put a Hollands pie between

    Technically correct, but by the same argument we need to keep Manchester for GH Sheldon’s Lancashire Oven Bottom Muffins. As any Wiganner will tell you, pies are best served in a bottom muffin baked in a Lancashire oven.
