Leeders

Here’s a question from the pleasingly rhyming Paul in Montreal:

Glaswegians are from Glasgow.
Liverpudlians are from Liverpool.
Londoners are from London.
What the fuck do you call people from Leeds??

Readers in the greater Leeds area, go to the comments and tell him. Paul, I don’t know why you’re so infuriated by this – is it a big problem facing Canadians at present? Moreover, what do you call people from Montreal?

    I’ve always thought “Leodensians” as in the Kaiser Chiefs’ song I Predict A Riot.

  2. Elzapan Says:

    The Kaiser Chiefs song “I predict a riot” has the lyrics:
    A friend of a friend he got beaten
    He looked the wrong way at a policeman
    Would never of happened to Smeaton
    An old leodensian

    It’s about a night out in Leeds. Evidence. Boooom.

    i prefer to indicate where someone’s from by saying words in their accent.

    for leeds, see: cappucino, kitkat chunky and communism.

    similarly, for my hometown (liverpool), see: chicken, granite and enchiladas.
    or anywhere in the south, see: bath, grass and dessert.
    southeners say things wrong.

  4. Fran Says:

    I thought it was Leodensians? But with a Bradfordian fiancé, they’re usually called cunts in our house. With a cheating cunty football team to boot.

  5. Sam Says:

    You’re all wrong, it’s “Leoditians”, from the latin name for the settlement, Leodis.

  6. Matthew from Liverpool Says:

    I have been informed by my very Yorkshire friend that people from Leeds are in fact called ‘Loiners’.

    Also, people from Liverpool, such as myself, would probably say we are ‘Scousers’ rather than ‘Liverpudlians’

  7. Bryan in Canada Says:

    I’ll tell you what we don’t call people from Montreal–good drivers.

  8. Andy Nattan Says:

    Loiners
