Not sure. Leeds is a strange mix of very moneyed people (it's the big UK financial centre outside London), but a deep rooted sense of being down to earth, folksy, unpretentious.

Like may be Texas is the equivalent?
Texas is too much a power player state to be what I think Leeds is. Your description of leeds fits new jersey well- its the state of blue collar springsteenism while also being a haven for the wealthy who want large lots just outside new York and philly

Yorkshire is by far the biggest county and the people there speak slowly

I'd always thought of large parts of Northern England as being essentially Rust Belt but with varying degrees of regrowth and regeneration in the ex-industrial towns. New Jersey seems more comparable to Essex / the estuary bits of Kent.

tbf, New Jersey is a decent-size state with lots of beautiful countryside and farmland, Princeton, etc. But it also has some shit cities and lots of "Jersey Shore" knuckleheads.

Yeah, that's why I'd say Essex. Some chocolatebox pretty and eyewateringly expensive countryside and market towns, some cheap-and-cheerful seaside, some big industrial ports and a load of what is essentially London overflow.

I've neglected this thread cos I've been a bit sub par on the sniffles level of things, but I think I'm coming out.

Midweek would suit me best at the moment.

What say a Thursday?

21 or 28?

Not very dischordian numbers I know, but we get 3 and 1 quicksmart.
