This newsgroup will welcome discussion, debate and argument concerning Geordie identity, history, folkways, music, humour, attitudes, beyor, language, and related items that go to make up the Geordie culture. Items submitted by Geordie exiles as far away as Berwick, Stockton, Guisborough and Argentina will be particularly welcome, as will debates on Geordie identity (thus, for example, is a Makem an honorary Geordie, or an entirely different species of person?)
Contributions written in Geordie will be greatly appreciated, particularly jokes and monologues in that fair tongue.
