The English port of Liverpool is famous for three things: soccer, music and violence. Historically it falls within the boundaries of Lancashire, but culturally it has never fitted there. It’s always been too self-assertive and idiosyncratic, so much its own place that its inhabitants go by two names. Formally, they’re Liverpudlians; informally, they’re Scousers.

As the media clichés have it, Scousers are fiercely proud of their city and fiercely tribal in their politics. And their politics have always been left-wing — sometimes very left-wing.

May the force of Hillsborough get ya, may you trip over stolen hubcaps and shopping trolleys. I don’t live there, I’m halfway between there and Manchester but I do understand how non Scousers have it all wrong.

    Nottingham? I believe it is a semi mythical town somewhere near Hull (Hell?) although perhaps nearer to the border with England than that geordie metropole and populated by a race of orcs called ‘chavs’?

      Seems the land of a mythical or semi-mythical people in the mists of bogs – most atmospheric and old worldly.
