Re(1): Worrisetorkinabout?

This American copper didnt know our cultural heritage Bill,below might help.

Yet if this accounts for the origins of ‘Scouse’ the dish, the development of the more interesting transferred senses of the term is complicated and difficult to trace. ‘Scouseland’, meaning Liverpool, appears to date from the usage of seamen and dockers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. But the crucial shift, which associates people, place and cultural (in this case culinary) tradition, appears to have taken place around the First World War in the slang of the British Armed Forces. In fact the evidence suggests that the use of ‘Scouse’, and the derivative ‘Scouser’, was a negative, or at least playfully disrespectful, way of referring to the inhabitants of Liverpool by people from elsewhere. This pejorative sense is confirmed by the first reports of the use of ‘Scouse’ within the city itself, which make clear that it referred primarily to denizens of the Scotland Road area (one of the poorest, and most Irish, districts). Indeed, while it remained as the name used in Army and Naval slang for Liverpudlian members of the Forces, ‘Scouse’ failed to displace ‘Dicky Sam’, the most widely used nickname for a Liverpudlian which dated from the early nineteenth century, until the 1920s-30s (at which point it began to contend with ‘wacker’ – the alternative form until the 1970s).
If you remember in Carlisle they used to call Scouse in our Billet and we all answered.
Cheers Wack,William.
