The Zimbabwean police force is actually not very corrupt.

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

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.

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.

I think central York suffers a bit like Venice. It can get so crowded with tourists it feels like Disneyland during school holidays. You can't walk down Stonegate or Petergate without stumbling into hordes of ravening zonb, er, tourists. That's a very York perspective though. Other tourist cities have it much worse. There's. I dunno, 4-6 streets in York that are bonkers with tourists. In York's defence, if you are meeting unfriendliness in the city centre it's probably not from a local. And tbh I've not had a single moment of unpleasantness since I moved here.

We are probably moving to Selby, 10 miles south. Much more laid back and very Yorkshire.

Yorkshire.
If I had a blank map or a may that showed districts but did not label them, I would not be able to say for sure exactly where Yorkshire was. (I do have a rough idea)
But some of my way-back kinfolk must have come from there. And every other part of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. And France, too!

I like Yorkshire very much. I love the warmth of the people and the random chats with strangers. My MIL's house in an ex pit village is being sold right now, and I feel sad. There's a real community there and I always felt at home.
Our plan was always to move up there. We were a Yorkshire/Derbyshire couple who only came down here to the south east for work, and it was supposed to be temporary. But here I still am, four decades later.

They put french fries on shitty white bread and call it a sandwich, so not exactly genius-central.

They put proper hand cut chips (not crisps, or french fries) on bread.

Speaking of chip related food, the quality of the fish and chips here is outstanding, and I should know, I've tried a few.

Of course when the Vikings beached their boats on the very same beaches 300 years later, in order to massacre the Angles, it was a crime against humanity.

Beef dripping frying was on the way out when I arrived in '02, and non-extant when I left in '09 in my Suffolk backwater. It was great, tho. The fries would puff out like little souflee's.

I had properly shitty chip and butty in Doncaster. I also saw a Sex Pistols tribute band in that shithole. On the same day. That's nostalgic travel bragging rights.

In the Daily Mirror, they wrote about a guy who accidentally batter fried up a rubber sink stopper and served it in an order of onion bhajee. I met him.
