Yorkshire - outside of Raqqa, the world centre for Muslim child-rape gangs.

The Zimbabwean police force is actually not very corrupt.

Usually they'll just politely ask you to buy them a coke.

If you remove York, Yorkshire would be right up there.

My grandmother's grandparents were from Halifax or thereabouts. She would say to my mother "He wants a good spanking." (To which I would mentally reply "That's the last thing I want!") I later learned that that use of "want" was Yorkshire English. I think it comes up in Billy Liar.

The gggrandparents came over about 1850, so a memory of their speech has survived cisatlantically for about 187 years.

My father's father's family came from Yorkshire. I liked Yorkshire. The people were warm and friendly.

I came from there. And my mother's family. Most of us are nice folks.

Degreed, but York is full of assholes. Equus excepted, of course.

However, in their defense, it's a small town in the middle of nowhere that attracts tourists by the mega load, so you can be sure they are not on their best behavior when you the tourist shows up.

E is from Huddersfield ( #HTAFC #WeArePremierLeague and all of that jazz yes, we were at Wembley for the Championship Playoff Final v. Reading back in May), so the West Riding (Kirklees and environs) has a special place in my heart.
