Well I call my mother Mam, so I must be a northerner.

I heard a story that the crowd at a Dover v Crawley football match were chanting "Go home you Northern b******s".

Everywhere is North.

If you put a full skip outside your house and it's empty in the morning, you're in the north. If you put an empty skip outside your house and it's full in the morning, you're in the south.

Tamar bridge.

In my wife's eyes, it's Truro.

To me (sheffield) i think bitmingham area is south and anything further north is the mighty NORTH.

Well I can work out whether you're a northerner or southerner in a few simple questions:

What is the ideal accompaniment for fish'n'chips?

When do you eat "dinner"- (around midday, or in the evening)?

How much is a reasonable price to pay for a pint? 


I'll be interested to see how that works SJ! For the record:

  •  Curry sauce.
  • Evening, otherwise it'd be lunch!
  • I don't mind paying £3

I reckon the divide's round-about the Nottingham/Derby area.

Dinner in the north is midday. You have tea (not the drink) at 5-7pm and supper bout 9-10pm

Watford Gap Services on the M1 = midlands border

Chips and mushy peas.
As a kid I'd always say dinner was at midday - these days depends who I'm talking to but in my head dinner is still midday, tea is at 5-6pm,  if I'm eating at 7-8 it's because I've missed my tea.
My local is £1.60 a pint and anything much over £2.20 I think is expensive.

  Passport checks at Coldstream.

Dinner is midday, tea in the evening, and supper before bed.
Salt and vinegar on chips (and whatever random food item has been battered and deep fried to go with them)
No idea what a pint costs.  They're too difficult to drink from the brown paper bag.
