Are you more likely to become an expat if you are from certain areas in Blighty or is it just coincidence that half the bored is made up from scots and geordies? so where are you from?

Wasn't sure if Wiltshire was part of the Cider belt, so went for somewhere else.

Originally a Stretford lad, born and raised within earshot of the theatre of dreams.

Oi!

Well....ok, I did live in Richmond for a couple of years as a child.

Not 'where' exactly

A 'posh kent' is a saying oft muttered by salt of the earth ruffians in the hostelries at the top end of the Old Kent Road, such as the Gin Palace at Elephant and Castle, when referring to a member of the upper class.

'that posh kent has got a bi-plane at Biggin Hill'
