    Getting back to the point, any other suggestions apart from Lincoln and Macclesfield?

    Come to Yorkshire if you want the North, but obviously not South Yorkshire as its the north Midlands or the north by a half east Midlands or is it northeast by north Midlands?
    Having failed to win the Midland vote and now "moved" to the North, if Lincoln gets frozen out of the North Pole (sic), will it go for the hat-trick (or hatters trick) and be dragged down to the South for a third consecutive poll!

    You still haven't forgiven that? Even though it's nearly two years since it was restored to 4.8%?

    North of a line from roughly Aberystwyth to the Wash:-

    Burton upon Trent, Newark, Preston, Chesterfield, Beverley, Bolton, Leeds to Todmorden railway (Bradford, Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge, Tod'), Halifax, Harrogate, Southport, Stafford.


    I'm assuming Lancaster, Darlington, Stockton and Middlesbrough are too difficult travel wise, ditto any places off the rail network.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    No-one's going to thank me for saying this, but Burton upon Trent, Newark and Chesterfield are all in East Midlands region counties, and Stafford is in the West Midlands.

    Also, taking a 'via London' view of travel options, typical timings for those travelling from the South to the North look like this:
    • Macclesfield - 1'45" (direct)
    • Lincoln - 2'00" (1 change)
    • Chester - 2'00" (direct)
    • Preston - 2'10" (direct)
    • Lancaster - 2'25" (direct)
    • Darlington - 2'30" (direct)
    • Bolton - 2'35" (1 change)
    • Southport - 2'40" (2 changes)
    • Bradford - 2'45" (1 change)
    • Harrogate - 2'45" (1 change)
    • Halifax - 3'00" (1 change)
    • Beverley - 3'00" (1 change)
    • Hebden Bridge - 3'10" (1 change)
    • Sowerby Bridge - 3'20 (1 change)
    • Todmorden - 3'20 (2 changes)
    • Stockton - 3'20 (2 changes)
    • Middlesbrough - 3'20 (1 change)

    No I haven;t, I couldn't stomach ploughing through all of Protz's sycophantic drivel but saw no sign of an apology or an honest admission as to why they watered it down. The restoration of it had passed me by as I haven't seen it in a pub since it was removed as a National JDW guest.
    At least they are not guilty of carrying out serial watering down like Robinson's, a brewery I once had a lot of respect for but not any more.

    If we're talking Midlands then I would add Loughborough & Stourbridge.
    Surely Tod to Bradford inclusive is too much? I would have chosen just Sowerby Bridge and Hebden Bridge. It might be easier to get a bus between the two.

    Lancaster is really just as much a trek as Newcastle or Durham. Are the other three towns good enough?

    Has a PUG weekend ever been proposed?
