Not nearly as interested as they are in loss of identity or sacrificing the nation state to global institutions.

Another example to turn to is the Australian election this year. Labour were convinced that green issues would feature so high on the agenda of the electorate that they focused a campaign around it. Low and behold once the results came out they were shocked when the center-right Liberal/National Coalition won. It turns out people care a lot less about green issues then they do at the prospect of the cost this policy would have on jobs and the economy.
Sorry, I must have missed your answer. You are a Brit, yeah? Northerner or Southerner? Scouse or Woollyback? Yam Yam or Brummie? Cockney or Cockwomble?

You can't blame me for being curious, can you?

In the interests of full disclosure: I'm a Yam Yam from South Staffordshire and I've never visited Salisbury in my life, but I understand that the cathedral has a very fine spire.

I reckon he's a Lobbygobbler or a shandy drinker. Definitely not a baby's yed nosher. Possibly a Sandgrounder (as opposed to THE Sandgrounder ) or even a donkey lasher.

I'd have put my money on a minglesnatcher or himble-sausage myself.

I'm sure he'll put us right soon enough.

Yam yam sounds like a cat's name or a delicious dish.

What exactly is Yam Yam?

(yes, I know ; bless my cotton socks and all that)

My father came from South Staffordshire - he used to say that he had trouble understanding his cousins who came from Walsall, maybe 10 miles away . ("wum" for "home", for example)
