I moved here from Up North in the eighties, there just weren't any jobs where I lived, unless I moved to a city. Visiting the folks last week, I saw on the local news that a Tory Think Tank has just released a report urging residents in the North East (especially Sunderland) to move to the South East as this is where the economy will prosper, i.e. more service industries. It's hard to leave your roots and start again but if this is where the jobs are.....

I heard about the idea encouraging people to move south and do not agree. I would have thought that a government initiative to encourage businesses up north would have been the logical solution, but then I'm not a polititian. One of the top items on the political agenda is the demand for affordable housing, yet I've heard that up north they have more housing than they can find people to live in. The world seems crazy.

Yes, I agree. The South is already over populated compared to the North. Also, moving around leads to the break down in communities and families. It can be difficult bringing up children in a nuclear family without extended family support. I am a product of Norman Tebbit's "get on your bike" attitude and I think the Tories wanted to break up communities to encourage individualism and avoid the strength of united people.

Hello Mr Bone, have you given a dog one? Those originally from the true North do make an attempt to fit in and are a small number. Compared with those from that other north, north london, the white flight brigade, but who wont admit it.
But bring with them their silly trendy views, which created the mess they left!

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
