    In the few places I've visited south from me they're generally as **** as each other.


    Oh is that the general consensus? As somebody who lives relatively near to the Scottish border "the south" starts a lot higher up for me.
    It should be the general consensus for people living in England. Scotland has its own north south divide. Edinburgh and Lothian are wealthier than the north. Aberdeen, the granite/oil capital of Europe, was recently an exception on the north east coast because it generated lots of wealth in the Brent crude oil industry, which over the past 2 years has declined significantly as Iran and USA oil exports have reduced the global price of oil from over 120 dollars barrel, to just 20, resulting in hundreds of thousands of jobs lost in Aberdeen.

    it depends as the 3 worst towns are all in the south (Crawley, slough and Luton)
    but then the south has the best connections nationally and internationally
    however, the north is cheaper than the south so it really personal opinion

    I've never been up north apart from to uni open day, have always been down south. In my head though I think of the North as being very dark and gloomy idk if it's actually like that though

    In the north, the people are generally more polite and friendlier to strangers. People from the north will probably know what I mean. There's just a bit of a difference between how people interact

    I was born and raised in the south,so I'll go with the south. I have been up north a few times but I didn't really like it
    Born and bred up north and I prefer the south 100%, so much of the north is a s**t hole (I'm from Preston so I'm allowed to say this)

    Yeah, Preston is a bit ****. The problem with the north is that it's hard to get a job if you are a minority like me lol. The south has a lot of jobs but its expensive.

    More seriously though,

    Everything is cheaper here, the scenery is better, the people are more friendly, the beer is vastly better and crime is almost non existent where I live.

    God I know! It's taken me nearly a year to find a part time job and the pay is rubbish 😐

    The perks of living up north, eh?
