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.(Original post by Retired_Messiah)
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.
Is Southern England nicer than Northern England Watch

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 opinionSpoiler:Showi'm from the south and would say south as my business is a asset fed business and assets are plentiful here where as cash is more avalible up north

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

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.

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.
The perks of living up north, eh?
