    Erm, exactly. Something does need to be done about the gap in living standards between the north and the south. Why should we (despite not being a northerner, I include myself in this because the same problems exist in my part of the Midlands) have to move to experience the same quality of life as our southern counterparts?
    The no jobs thing is a myth anyway, there are plenty of white coller jobs in places like Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool .etc.

    Does anyone actually LIKE Harriet Harman? I mean, everyone seems to hate her, not even just be indifferent towards her...

    It is hardly enough to start waving the discrimination banner, though.

    I knew Harriet Harperson was an utter prat but I didn't know she was up for this sort of thing. Thank god she'll never be Prime Minister - although it will be funny to see her as leader of the opposition having to take the brunt of her own jokes

    There's not enough for all the graduates that want them though, nor are they in same 'league' as the London jobs. Which is understandable, it being the capital and all, but if there really was equal career opportunities, how do you explain the lower living standards in the north?

    This picture makes me happy - it's her reaction to a clobbering from William Hague
