no because it's when there was industry mainly the ici chemical plants and the steelworks there was lots of smoke in the air so the boro people became known as smoggie's, hope that explanation helps you, (cats my #rse )
Just spoke to my bro' in law who's from Middlesborough and he says he's never heard the term before either.
Yes, Mr Nev, I can see that fits. It's doesn't seemso bad there now.Just a few chemical plants left. My boys play football in and around Middlesborough regularly as most of the teams are from there. We always seem to be the only ones from Yorkshire in our league.Must be something to do with the chemicals up there as the kids seem to be built like brick sh*t houses.
