Are all Northerners, fat, stupid and expecting the State to wipe their arses?

The BBC's Question Time was from Bradford last night and my heart sank as I looked out an audience comprised largely of fat people who pretty ssoon showed that they were also - almost to a person - just plain stupid. It was all too predictable what followed as a questionner asked whether George Osborne's pre-election talk about a Northern Powerhouse was just vote grabbing waffle.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 15 September - Vipers in the Stockmarket Garden of Eden

Take two on this podcast as I was rudely interrupted first tme around by someone from the Grim Northern post industrial welfare safaris making his day's calls before sitting down to watch the Jeremy Kyle show. On today's show I look at Eden Research (EDEN), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Globo (GBO), Sareum (SAR), Tern (TERN), Hydrogen (HYDG) and Golden Saint Resources (GSR). Trivia question of the day: which THREE of those companies have NOT sent me a lawyers letter or reported me to the rozzers?

Brokerman Dan translates Manchester Slum language for me - he's going to "rip me"

As you know I try to gain a real cultural understanding of life in the grim Northern post-industrial welfare safaris by watching Corrie. But even after this crash course I am still sometimes at a loss.
