Reasons to Be Scouse Proud; You Tell Us What Liverpool and Her People Mean to You and Why They Are Special


WE recently asked you to tell us what makes what makes you proud to be a Scouser, here is a selection of your replies Louise Lacy: It's true what they say, Liverpool is the world in one city. It's everything, the people, the culture, the sense of always belonging no matter whereabouts, in Liverpool you are. I wouldn''t want to live anywhere else!

Louise Urban: I''m moving here next year after waiting nearly 20 years. I was born in London (although not lived there for 14 years), but I''ve always loved the 'Pool. For me it is the people, so welcoming and friendly, the beautiful architecture, the music, the culture, the humour. It is a very, very special place like no other and is very infectious (in a good way!). I''m hoping I can become an honorary scouser.

Susan Kendrick: The generosity of the Liverpool people. The great sense of humour. Liverpool is a city to be proud of, the shopping is amazing. The food outlets and bars, cafes, restaurants cater for every taste. The waterfront, the Docks. Oh, the old buildings, greatly restored.

Tony Bateman: By the start of the 19th century, 40% of the world's trade passed through Liverpool''s docks. What other city can boast that statistic? Phil Irving: Always believe the words of the late Margaret Simey "The magic of Liverpool is that it isn't England". Says it all Mick Anchor: The people make the city and the city makes the people.

Elizabeth Bannister: The people, the humour, the history, the music. It''s just something that is in us all and it will never, never leave me. I am PROUD to be a scouser.

Karen Parr: Everything. Best footy clubs; humour; the buildings; the characters ; the music; the people the history. I'd never move even if I won the lotto. Liverpool is my home Paul Nelson: The people, the togetherness in adversity the football, the Beatles, the humour, our unique accent, our history, our culture and we share it with everyone. …
