    Northerners are a bunch of work-shy slackers who'll nick your wheels as soon as look at you.

    Southerners are hardworking, diligent and far better looking.

    In the interests of not prejudicing your 'report' I wont say which part im from, ok?

    Ok.

    I once saw a program about people from the north, and immediately held an impromptu telethon for the poor blighters.

    Hang in there fellas. We'll get you out eventually.

    Let's see...
    The north gave us the Beatles.
    The south gave us the Sex Pistols.
    The midlands gave us Robert Plant and John Bonham.
    How about we call it a draw?

    I assume this will get moved, but I'll answer now, anyway.

    I'm a Northerner who has lived in London for seven and a half years.

    The stereotypes generally go something like this. According to the stereotypes, Southerners are arrogant, rude, money-obsessed and upper class. Again, using stereotypes, Londoners are nouveaux riches idiots, who flash their cash at every opportunity and are vacuous. They are either that or violent gangster types ( a stereotype usually applied to black males in the inner city) or are pretentious latte sipping types.
    According to the stereotypes, Northerners are less intelligent, poor, criminal, racist, inbred and violent. They are more likely to drink real ale, wear flat caps and breed pigeons.

    I must stress that all of the above are stereotypes. Some people will tell you that they are true. I would argue that you can find the stereotypes to fit your case, if you want to look for them, and tend to treat them with extreme caution.

    Politically, rural England tends to vote Conservative or possibly Liberal Democrat. Inner City England votes Labour, suburban London now votes Conservative or Liberal Democrat (this changes quite a lot) and suburban Southeast England is overwhemingly Conservative. Most of the North, but not all of it, votes Labour. Parts of Cheshire have some of the safest Tory seats in the UK, as they are very rich.

    Here's one thing I have noticed. Londoners care a lot less about "the North", than Northerners care about "the South". When you mention to Londoners that Northerners don't like them, many aren't even aware of the fact. The opposite isn't necessarily true in my experience.

    For the purposes of your project, I would separate out the South-East (i.e. the Home Counties), London and the South West. They are three distinct areas. Equally, Lancashire and Yorkshire are very diverse and quite different from Cheshire. North of this area is different again.

    Miss Gcat is a Londoner, so I'm going to have to be a traitor and say that the South has the hottest babes.

    People from South England have a funny accent. They call it DixieBrit.

    In the north, they talk in a strange way, not pronouncing their "r's" and the eat a lot of beans.

    South Englanders like to date their cousins, or their sisters, and go to the BritCar Races.

    North Englanders, on the other hand, ore far more normal in their dating preferences....but sometimes they stray off course if their cousin happens to look like this [​IMG]

    Other than those differences, North and South Englanders really arent much different. it's the East Englanders, and the West Englanders that really are wierd.

    So, in analogous New England terms, Northerners are are Red Sox fans, Londoners are Yankee fans.
