Ecky thump!

According to 't Mail, that nice Mistress Harperson wants to pass legislation to protect us northerners from being discriminated against by pushy southern buggers. (Nice to be a member of a government-approved victim group for once, in't it?)

I wonder if the sub who chose that particular Last of the Summer Wine publicity photo as an appropriately stereotypical northern illustration for the piece appreciates the irony of his choice. Of the actors portrayed, Bill Owen (Compo) and Peter Sallis (Clegg) are both Londoners, while Brian Wilde (Foggy) was born in Lancashire but brung up in the south.

Ho hum.
