Yorkshire Day?

Re: Yorkshire Day?

Aye lad, we dunt want furriners jumpin' on t' bandwaggin 'n' celebrat'n' our day.
Heard on the radio this morning that Yorkshire Tea had taken a van down to London to dish out tea to those afflicted by not living in Gods Own County.
Erm, I thought the point of Yorkshire Tea is that its blended to suit the water doled out by the cheery chappies at Yorkshire Water?
I wonder if they've taken Yorkshire Tea fur furrinnerrs down to London town? (The one in the green box)
Anybody near BBC Studio's to go and investigate?

Re: Yorkshire Day?

Yes you can get it down here, from Tesco and Sainsbury, one of the few teas not in bags, and our water is harder than yours

Re: Yorkshire Day?

Its still said a lot in Yorkshire, but not sure how well it would transfer to other counties?
Starts me thinking about lots of phrases that we're not allowed to say any more in case somebody is offended.
You know, stuff like "The managers are all ****s" (You can interpret that how you like, "The managers are all stars" would work I suppose. Wink )

Re: Fuel poverty looms

Asda have Yorkshire tea on a 2 for £5 offer ATM - compared with £3.23 usually for 160.
(160 direct from Betty's/Taylors/Yorkshire Tea costs £3.45)
So if you buy 160, you save 22p, if you buy 320 you save £1.90!!
