My once beautiful small town here in the heart of Cheshire (Winsford) way back until the early `60`s with its population of just under 7000,then became an overspill town.I work with them and they absolutely call everybody “lad”. The younger females even call each other “lad”.
Never once heard any of them say “la”.
We hit the big time due to its location, not too far from the M6 and companies from both Liverpool and Manchester were offered big money to relocate to Winsford, thus bringing in thousands of Scousers and Mancs into our likul old town.
Never once have I ever heard Scousers use the word "lad" as its even used now as "la" ... seriously SR, and its a standing joke as even the older generation of Scousers still use the word in my local of 50 years.
The fuckers get everywhere ... except out of town.
