I was just reading this ---> http://palatinate.dsu.org.uk/Sense/46/
It basically just goes on about the whole "rah" stereotype in Durham. Anyway, I came across the words "pink pashmina" so often, I finally had to feed it into google, to find out what on earth was meant. I found lots of pictures - and "Oh dear....I own a scarf just like that!" All I need to do, is plug in a pair of pearl earings, and I'm almost one of them. :eek: (Minus the loud voice perhaps...I'm not really very loud).
I still don't get what their stereotype of "Rah" is...oh and I just looked up a picture of "pink pashmina" as well, it just looks like a normal scarf except that it's pink :confused:

Shilling the exact same thing happened to me!! We don't really have 'rahs' here so was kind of confused by the whole thing and it wasn't till I visited durham in march that I found out what a pashmina was-and yes, I have three!!! (one being pink !) So I'm thinking I might be leaving them at home, as I'm so not a rah!

Why does it matter to you ? It's just as ridiculous as someone from a private school asking which college has the least poor people in it. I would point out to you that there's a difference between poshness and snobbery. There are quite a few very posh and very well off people at my college, but I have yet to encounter a single incidence of snobbery.

I agree. Whilst I'm state school, you get the impression people from state schools make an issue of it when public school people don't. Obviously there'll be some stuck up t*ssers, it's inevitable, but it's only an issue if you make it one.

Oh, and its fewest, not least. Been bugging me for a while that.
