If Irish nationalism was dormant for the first half of the nineteenth-century, the Famine convinced Irish citizens and Irish-Americans of the urgent need for political change. So we can dimly see one possible route from Africa to Yorkshire. A group of out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers decide to become male strippers to try to make some much-needed money. You’ll notice one of them pronounces name with [ɛː] when he says, “…a lorra problems pronouncing our name.” I’ve also noticed that the centralization of the diphthong in kite seems to be more widespread in the South.

[115] [116] [117] Following a period of widespread economic slowdown and industrial strife in the 1970s, the Conservative government of the 1980s under Margaret Thatcher initiated a radical policy of monetarism, deregulation, particularly of the financial sector (for example, Big Bang in 1986) and labour markets, the sale of state-owned companies ( privatisation ), and the withdrawal of subsidies to others. [118] This resulted in high unemployment and social unrest, but ultimately also economic growth, particularly in the services sector.
