This morning a report was published by a think tank that claimed regeneration of northern cities such as Liverpool and Sunderland is failling and that those wanting to live in relative prosperity must move south for such dreams to become a reality.
What do you think? Are poverty, unemployment and low wages more prominent up north? Maybe you live there and can shed some light on these issues. This is another angle of the debate over poverty. Evidence has long claimed that life expectancy and living standards are significantly higher in London and the south than in the north, in places such as Middlesbrough and Hull.
