Strangely enough there has been quite an influx of southern Muppet's moving "up North" over the past few years, probably cashing in on house prices.
A Merc salesmen once told me that more new Mercs are sold in Barnsley per head of population than anywhere else in the country. Dont know if its true, but you always seem to see the new models there first.
Anyways coming to Eric Illsley's manor in the next few weeks, (as long as a deal can be worked out for his pension)...No doubt to elect another innumerate thieving shyster with a red rosette.
We will have to hope the gene poll strengthens in the coming decades as the new influx takes effect.
