It's very simple.

Yorkshire folk hate each other.
If it's a choice between a Yorkshireman/woman and a Lancastrian, then the we'll unite against the Lancastrian.
.
Very true.
I was at a Rugby League game between Leeds and Bradford at Headingley many years ago. It was one of the final games of the season. Usually, being close neighbours, Bradford and Leeds are fierce rivals. However this particular game would would determine wether Bradford won the league or Leeds' even bigger rivals across the pennines, Wigan. There was not much at stake for Leeds since they were mid table.

During the second half it became obvious that Bradford were gonna win. Overjoyed that the Lancastrian scum Wigan would not win league, both sets of supporters started chanting Yorkshire Yorkshire Yorkshire!

Re: Yorkshire folk hate each other

Cameron said this, as a joke, it was reported by people looking for a reaction and yet the whole of Yorkshire just shrugged.

Now imagine if he'd said it about another *group* of people.

True. Has Boris Johnson ever made it back to Liverpool since that incident?
