We are fearless...
I am tickled by the new livery on our local Northern Railway trains: 'We are fearless; we are Northern'. There is always something defiant and proud about us northerners; so much in the UK is London and south-centric. The Conservative government have been talking about a 'Northern Powerhouse' for several years, the idea being to boost the key northern cities, improve transport links and bring in investment. We will believe it when we see it! I recently saw a spoof article (here) that seemed to sum it up. It said that the government have now decided that the Northern Powerhouse will be relocated to London! Many a true word is spoken in jest... Already the Tories have announced a plan to move 228 jobs in the 'Northern Powerhouse' department from Sheffield to London!
Anyway, I am adopting the railway strapline for my blog. We are fearless!
