Our 'manifesto' was a writing exercise where in blue (Huddersfield) and red (Liverpool) ink me and Lucie take turns to write a regional phrase. The phrases were found on news sites under the headlines '32 Yorkshire phrases' and '20 things only Scousers say'. The use of the publicised and stereotyped syntax allowed us to explore the perceived identities of regional towns and explore the breadth of cultural and regional otherness and separation of identity.
