Right Wing Think Tanks Slams Northern Cities

A right wing think tank has slaughtered the cities of northern England even going as far as to suggest that those from the area should move to the south east of England to further their careers and improve their employment prospects. Can this be true? Or is this yet another example of the north south divide?

To suggest that literally millions of people should pack their bags and head south for a better life is one of the more absurd things to come out of these public funded think tanks - or as they are being called 'empty think tanks'. While life in the north of England is tougher from an employment point of view there are many places which have benefitted from substantial inward investment. Places such as Newcastle and Manchester to name but two have literally reinvented themselves over the last 20 years and now have very profitable and thriving business communities.

Even though some of the smaller towns in the north may well be struggling with employment opportunities thin on the ground why would they want to relocate down south?

This is yet another example of the north south divide and the attitudes which force many in the north to detach themselves from their southern cousins. Many people conveniently forget that the south of England receives substantially more inward investment than the north and maybe it is time to rebalance this equation?
