Absolutely impossible.

City and County of Bristol. Not in the city or the county of Bristol. 

They arnt part of Bristol, simple as that. 

A postal address makes no difference, it’s like saying half of Cornwall is in Truro. 

 

Yeovil had a Bath Post code!!!!!!!

I have lived in Hanham for the past 12 years. I have to say that I think it is far more red than blue. A lot of the City lot that live over here are good 'lads' as well.

There really doesn't seem to be many young gas lads here at all. Maybe just poor unfortunates who are forced to be blue by vindictive relations.

As an example I took a kids football training session for a group of 12 year olds from AEK Boco. 14 kids turned up. 12 wearing City shirts, a plump boy in a Man Utd shirt and a ginger kid in a Rovers shirt (his dad is gas).

As for pubs, on Northern Soul nights up the Trooper you do get a small group of ex skinhead gas who are about 60 years old. I know them all and there is never any bother. Most in there are City. Jolly does get some gas in when they have a home match. Tend to drink there pre match and travel to the game. Not many though. Maypole is almost exclusively City. Cross Keys is virtually all red. Blue Bowl......not sure, shit food pub I avoid.

Gotta be said ......... Hanham is Red.

Still outside the City and County of Bristol 😄

 

Which bit of "it doesn't matter what arbitrary boundaries local government draw" wasn't clear?

Until 1974, Manchester United didn't play in Manchester according to local government boundaries. Yet clearly they did - hence the name.

Why is the UN more important than actual boundaries? 

In your eyes then no boundaries exist at all then?

What happens when Bradford and Leeds finally meet up, a new city called Braleeds?

Not random local government made-up ones. For example, no one born in Midsomer Norton would say "I was born in BANES". Everyone would say "I was born in Somerset". If you travel from Horfield to Filton no one thinks "I'm leaving Bristol now". You are clearly in the same continuously built-up city. 

Boundaries change continuously. As I pointed out from the link I posted, Hanham was originally in Gloucestershire (as was most of what we now think of as the city of Bristol) but in 1891 it became part of Bristol only to transfer to another local government area (Kingswood) in the 20th century.

Various posters make reference "the city and county of Bristol" but there has been no such thing since 1972.  Only one city "Bristol" administered by two local authorities - BCC and SGDC.

Eventually, we might get a sensible solution as happened to the Manchester conurbation in 1974, where various diffuse boroughs and districts were all recognised as constituent parts of one authority "Greater Manchester". Until then we have the logistically daft 'one city, two local authorities' situation. Even the horror that was Avon made more sense.

Little Stoke was blue yesterday, I can officially report, when I was there for about an hour and a half. The final score in shirts was:

City 0 Rovers 1.

Come on Little Stoke, pull yer bloody shirt out. 

Patchway, little Stoke and Filton definitely more red than blue these days

The residents of Hanham, Kingswood, Filton etc can't vote for the mayor of Bristol to my knowledge, ergo they don't live in Bristol surely?

They don't live in the Bristol City Council area, but they do live in the metropolitan area of Bristol. 

I can't reiterate my arguments all over again about the transitory nature of local government boundaries as opposed to the actual organic nature of a joined-together urban conurbation.

That's surprising as it's only up the road from the mem so what's their stonghold mainly Easton, Horfield,Southmead and Brentry 

Barr’s Court, Cadbury Heath, Warmley are probably the real strongholds for that lot.

The rest is mixed or mainly City.

Maybe Cadbury Heath, and Oldland, I doubt Warmley or Barrs Court. went to school 07-12 & The Grange was roughly 65% City then, let alone now.

That's quite a way out for them! Who has bragging rights in posh Clifton assuming there are a few supporters there when their not polishing their porches or taking flying lessons 😁

This talk of '65% City' in this region, and 'that area is mostly City' is starting to read like a thread where the fewers discuss their away following.

Let's get back to celebrating random acts of violence that occurred 40 years ago when innocent people were randomly clubbed round the head by a donkey-jacket wearing thickette carryng a UB40 card!

Whoever has the ’Yate’ flag, hats off to them. Every televised away match, it makes an appearance in prime position. Bloke must be some form of advertising executive with his blindingly brilliant product placement.  

 

Southmead is/was an interesting one. Always had a fearsome reputation for us wimps in WoT but (fortunately) appeared mainly City in the 70’s, along with Lawerence Weston. Then did not both go over to the dark side? What caused that? Even a once staunchly red Shirehampton seemed to turn blue in the 80’s.
