Consider the following GDPs. Liverpool £7 billion, Sheffield £9 billion, Leeds £50 billion, Manchester £90 billion, Birmingham £130 billion, London £900 billion.

 

So Leeds is 5x wealthier than Sheffield, Manchester 10x so. Birmingham is as wealthy as thirteen Sheffields. We're the capital of nothing.

 

Don't recall suggesting Sheffield was capital of anything. Just pointing out the self aggrandisement of Leeds.

Well, you're absolutely right that Leeds think no small stuff of themselves. I was more bemoaning our own failure. But when you look at those figures it really brings home just how inept those in charge of this city have been over the years. We're not the only city to have largely lost its industrial base, but the others have been able to reinvent themselves. It's galling.

Leeds has about as much culture as a yoghurt pot. 

 

Some Yoghurts have loads of culture :ph34r:

I was talking about yoghurt pots. 

 

Yoghurt pots have culture - life in plastic is fantastic, innit!

 

Kind of like that "Bladesman" culture thing but less cringeworthy.

The Yorkshire Post, Calendar, Look North and the regional radio stations are all totally biased towards Leeds. It's pathetic that they seem to deem Leeds some beautiful haven amongst the rest of the plebs in Yorkshire.

 

Apart from a few more nicer shops and bars Leeds is absolute shyte, just like most places in England. 

 

The wankathon when / if they get promoted will be cringeworthy. 

 

The Yorkshire post and the regional

radio stations are not "all totally biased

towards Leeds"

 

Are you honestly suggesting that radio 

Sheffield is totally biased towards Leeds ?.....

Yet again The YORKSHIRE POST is taking flack for articles printed in a different newspaper. ..

The Yorkshire evening post, which is a Leeds paper.

 

With Look north, you do have a point though and I agree that they are not even handed in their football coverage.

 

Surely criticism has to be aimed at the right target !

It's not that difficult is it ?

Sincere apologies to THE YORKSHIRE POST for confusing them with YORKSHIRE EVENING POST, truth be told i did not know the two were not one and the same. The latter appears to be the Leeds Evening Post referred to in the OP lol

Yes you are right.  The yp and the yep are both excellent newspapers. Collectively we refer to them as the yp in the trade we are known as Yorkshire post newspapers.  

 

Maybe if you live in Leeds and support Leeds united and are a big fan of rugby league then the Leeds evening post could be considered  an excellent  newspaper !      :biggrin:
