I have some prozac if you're interested sebo.
I will bet you will find the BBC will mention 'Liverpool' very little over the days of broadcasting.Toadboy said:I'm not sure about the provincialising of the vent, maybe you're right.
Ladies day is a bit of a misleading title though, it's a scouse day out as against the world event that happens on the Saturday, or a day that the 'ladies' go to.
Actually Sebo you could have a point. BBC little ingerlanders. Liverpudlians love their days out, it's partly this reason why the national became and retained it's popularity - the jockeys, owners, trainers and visitors love the whole setting, people and atmosphere. It's not a reflection of a 'poor mans' Royal Ascot, it's Liverpool races.
Must admit I didn't, but then, How many people know where Ascot (err. Down south Somewhere?) or Haydock park are?Gareth said:Indeed, it's usually as if Aintree's some entirely different city completely unrelated to Liverpool. Actually, I've heard 'Liverpool' a bit more in recent years, but I'm sure many people from other parts of the country had no idea where about Aintree was, years ago.
Ascot and Haydock are not suburbs of large cities are they.Stephen Robinson said:Must admit I didn't, but then, How many people know where Ascot (err. Down south Somewhere?) or Haydock park are?
Haydock is. The city's name begins with "L", even if they do speak funny out there.the golden vision said:Ascot and Haydock are not suburbs of large cities are they.
There are many things in this world which I would lable as "barbaric", the Grand National isn't one of them.liverpolitan said:It's a cruel race. I will boycott it until they find a way of killing fewer - in fact no - horses. I don't care if it's in Liverpool or not, it's barbaric and needless.
