2005/05/31 13:34:00 - Conspiracy
It would appear that some people appear to believe in the existence of South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. These places are myths created, with appropriate pomp and ceremony, to disguise the fact that the southern end of that region we call "The North" is in fact covered by Nine City States with preposterous names like Calderdale and Barnsley.

The mythical West Yorkshire should not be confused with the historical West Riding, which covered an area slightly larger than the current Nine City States and was abolished in 1974 after an incident involving the Prince of Wales and a Ferret.

I suppose we could always revive Deira if we get really bored...

I would give you a long history lecture on the difference between counties and boroughs, and why one doesn't preclude the other, but I'm revising. Yes.

Good Senji, as a current member of RustyLantern, you have first dibs on the sole remaining bench. If you're interested, reply or email me for your cards (my lj name at pac bell dot net). If you're not interested, let me know so I can open the floor to new Bards.

Cheers,
Erik

Oh, good point, I meant to email you this morning but got distracted by work (terrible, eh?). Yes, I would please :).

senji at livejournal.com works as an email address for me.

My understanding was that the conspiracy was actually a benevolent one. If sufficiently many people are convinced that 'West Yorkshire' is, in fact, a county, many will start using 'WY' as an abbreviation for said county. This creates a very difficult to eliminate collision in the two letter abbreviation space with Wyoming, thereby preventing any future US takeover of the UK on the grounds that the USPS would veto the move.

Some may consider this to be a good thing.
