But you should read some of the things Maconie has to say about Yorkshiremen. Apparently, we're dour, cold, humourless and mean clearly he knew this review was coming. But the truly unforgivable slur is that he thinks that Jeremy Paxman and John Humphrys are closet Yorkshiremen. If Maconie can capriciously decide to exempt Lancastrian Liverpool from The North because he feels like it apparently they're more New York than Northern , why can't I exempt the whole of the North West?
But even Yorkshiremen and Lancastrians have something that can bring them together: the South. As someone who has lived in York, Sheffield, Manchester and London, but who now lives just off Scotch Corner because I reckon that here I might just possibly be out of range of Ken Livingstone's next extension of the Congestion Charge Zone, I cheer on Maconie when he moans about the way that the decadent South loves to patronise the glorious North, the way that the BBC has a "North of England Correspondent" but no "South of England Correspondent" whom is he corresponding with?
Half of the population of England live in the North. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
