Liverpool - home city of The Beatles, home of Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs, became the first major city in the UK to state that it was 100% unconvinced by Conservative leader David Cameron's rousing yet lacking in anything substantial speech, delivered in rival North West City, Manchester.
"You want us to take that crap seriously?" said former aerospace worker Mick McWhack. "You're having a laugh aren't you son? They've tried to drag us down to our knees too many times before. They even reputedly had a hand in Richard And Judy's 'Good Morning' programme being moved to London. And they think they're helping us with their empty promises? My arse they are! They'll try to destroy our morale all over again, just like the Nazis tried to do with Coventry with their bombing raids in 1940. David Cameron my arse."
Messages of support flooded in from all over the north/south divide in the UK, in support of the Scouse stance against Conservatism.
Most notably, from Manchester, where one email was sourced, which read:
"We ain't lettin' them muppets run the country man. You know what I mean. We're with you every step of the way. We hope you're as mad for it as we are. That'd be really bangin' man. Scouse Manc unity."
"Except on match days," A Manchester official told us.
More as we get it.
