    Erm, can't think of anything particularly Irish, Welsh or Scottish that I like, apart from the people of course :)

    I like the fact that although we moan and drip all over each other on this island about breaking up the union, we still stand together against any common foe, whoever that may be.
  5. Welsh cakes and bara brith is nice lamri
  6. Had some Welsh baps once, they were lovely!
  7. Oh i bet you did PMSL
  8. A pint of Bass in a real pub, a game of darts and a Hamlet
    Fish and Chips on a Friday night
    Not knowing if it's going to rain, blow or shine from one day to the next
    A proper butcher's shop
    The English Channel
    World Cup optimism, followed by 12 months of depression until the next European Championship

    I appreciate that some of these only concern England, but since Britain appears to be on it's way out . . . .
  9. Jellied eels
    Real Ale
    Welsh Rabbit
    Cornish pasties
    Yorkshire puddings

    The forgotten County, the only thing that could improve it would be for all the Yorkies to go back up North away from the County, why are Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales so good to talk about but none of the natives want to live there
  12. Oi! I represent that remark!

  14. oohhh you've opened a can of worms there babe!!
  15. Janner, Please dont be so negative toward folk from differant regions of the country, that wasnt the idea of the thread ! :twisted:

    I have lived in my parts of the country, Scotland. Manchester, Liverpool and worked in Wales and Yorkshire and take people as I find them and respect them for that.
  16. Don't worry Janner, I've done my time down there and apart from the occasional visit I'm not coming back to stay.
  17. So THAT's why they're moving all the engineering training to St Athan, I knew there was some ulterior motive!!!!!
  18. I pondered long and hard about this topic Bob (lacking useful employment - like many of you in uniform) started several replies and abandoned them - this diversion from the topic made me realise what for me think best sums up what is great - its our ability to take the urine out of each other :cool:
  19. Agreed, cat woman
