On a good day the socio-political (I love that word) divide between North and South in Britain is fairly benign. The South looks up in disdain, the North looks down with a smirk. However, politics can sometimes ruin this mutual dis-admiration society. Westminster is located in London. London is a long way geographically, politically, socially, culturally, and economically. If the current government has its way, that economic divide will soon be even greater.
Proposals such as this one are why Scottish Parliament regularly raises the idea of breaking away from Britain and forming an autonomous government. London looks after London. I wonder if we should follow Winterfell’s example and declare a King of the North?
