    Despite the claims all of the Northerns I’ve ridden with in Wales can’t see to live up to their claims, the Southerns were still going 🙂

    I DONT have multiple coffee devices! but otherwise that fairly accurate
    im so southern im not sure i get the dinner and rolls references..,

    Oh and I live in Kent

    good choice 🙂

    Pissing down- yes.

    erm. just along the road is officially one of the driest places in the country afaik. certainly noticed it rained a lot more when I moved away.

    proud to be 100% kentishman dangerously close to being a londoner, but I’ll stick to pie-n-mash, and let them keep their jellied eels tyvm, while the northeners can keep their congealed, fried, pig’s blood.

    and I have a Spanish Audi.

    All seems very passive aggressive to me. I’m from brizzle, never even heard of the north/south divide until I joined the army. I was genuinely confused by the cockanees and yorkshires harping on about flat caps and shandy. They all liked the phrase “coider I up lan’lorrrd” 😀
