Being a Geordie is not so much a geographical thing but more a state of heart ! .... Remembering when a Big Mac was nothing more than an oversized raincoat and when `going all the way` simply meant that you were staying on the bus until the depot. When grass was mown and when coke was kept in the coalhouse ... and when a joint was just a piece of meat mother cooked for Sunday lunch.David Bell is not an academic promoting obscure social theories, nor is he a `Johnny-cum-lately` hanging on to the coat tails of a resurgent Tyneside. He is just a canny lad from the back streets of Byker in the east end of Newcastle telling it the way it was ... and is. Post war Byker was full of contradictions.Ugly in a beautiful way.Good yet bad;rich yet poor. It had everything but it had nothing.Byker was different. Irresistable nostalgia for Geordie boys of a certain age.
