Duckie is a jugger thing (stokie) They have crossed the border into Derby up the A50. Everyone in Stoke is called Duck, ducky, ducky egg. Maaaarmate. Thickest people on the isles Stoakies are. I think they were the first to get sent to Australia.

Yes. I'm actually sat in Derby right now as it happens. I've been called duckie three times this morning. At first it's all quite quaint, but soon turns sinister when it's an 18 stone bricklayer who's saying it and you're both standing at a urinal in Mickleover Tescos.

Aah, Mickleover Tescos...I worked there when i was about 15..Your inlaws must live near my mum. Its Derby, we are probably related!

Re: Worst UK accents

Always found there is a huge black cloud overhanging Birmingham whenever I go up North which I take as the North/South divide marker. You go into a dark, colder climate and pissing rain that you only come out of at the exact same spot on the way back down.

What year was that mate? I think every cunt worked there. It's like a wanky badge of honour in Mickleover.

The North of England is a fantastic part of the world.

It's down south that people are grim, unfriendly, downtrodden and cold.

Was commenting on the weather, Dave.

Re: Worst UK accents

But the weather's shit everywhere in England.

Except possibly Torquay.

Yeah, but the weather's better and I get to swim in the sea every year. I would be a moody fucker if I lived in Leeds or Bournemouth, so I choose more sun, better outdoor living and no one calling me pet or ducky every time.

Re: Worst UK accents

The weather in London is a damned sight better than up North. I lived in Liverpool for 3 years and regularly travel from sunshine in London to rain in Manchester via the North South divide.

Statistically more sunshine hours in Bournmemouth than most places in the UK. I have the skin of Paul Hogan and the physique of a gazelle.

Re: Worst UK accents

I reckon it is about 10 degree warmer in the South.

Re: Worst UK accents

Beat these stats, Millsy, you fucken preck...
"Shanghai has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen Cfa) and experiences four distinct seasons. Winters are chilly and damp, and cold northwesterly winds from Siberia can cause nighttime temperatures to drop below freezing, although most years there are only one or two days of snowfall. Summers are hot and humid, with an average of 8.7 days exceeding 35 °C (95 °F) annually; the most pleasant seasons are Spring, although changeable and often rainy, and Autumn, which is generally sunny and dry. The city averages 4.2 °C (39.6 °F) in January and 27.9 °C (82.2 °F) in July, for an annual mean of 16.1 °C (61.0 °F). Shanghai experiences on average 1,878 hours of sunshine per year, with the hottest temperature ever recorded at 40.8 °C (105 °F) on 7 August 2013."

Agree with Millsy. Sussex had great weather, Yorkshire seemed like a horror show in comparison.

Admittedly, it's difficult to get a tan when you're in a version of the Truman Show where the 'walls' are made out of brick dust and chemical plant emissions.
