    North would be great but the lack of public investments there is dire.

    The south, even when you can get more for your money up north. Earning half the salary but getting a house at 25% the price of the south.

    Why don’t you move up north then? Personally, I’m happy with staying down south.

    I will be moving up north. My questions is why don't more people do this, if you can have everything more affordable

    The North. Lived in the North West all my life, but I've traveled around quite a lot and I wouldn't want to live in the South. People are so cold/distant, everything costs more and the pace of life is more stressful than it actually needs to be.

    I find the north really dull and boring - especially when compared to London. Also, the area I’m from is a business friendly area so it’s good for opening businesses.

    Yeah but it's also a bit dumpy up North.

    South is more expensive for a reason. It's nicer.
