    View from London- The North is valueless

    So now it's official, Northern commuters are valueless.

    The government and civil service holds us in contempt. So is it a surprise to hear how we now reciprocate those feelings?

    What is the most endangered species on Merseyside?

    Everywhere outside of London and the home counties is valueless as far as whitehall mandarins are concerned,that's where they live and work.

    I can't bring myself to read the link as it's the Guardian and I might take a serious turn for the worse.

    It has ever been so. The streets of London were supposed to be paved in gold and every young man who sought his fortune either took to the sea or the road up to London. In truth London needs to be avoided. It has always been a city of excess, of frustration, of loneliness and failed hope. Because it's on the Thames it's reachable and South therefore nearer now to our continental master and the weather is warmer. They say it never rains in London but that's because they can dive into shops to escape it and never notice.

    I joke of course, I am an escaped Londoner born and bred and although I haven't got quite up North I do know that quality of life is in many ways far superior. Why else would so many Londoners have weekend houses? Many of them 'oop North'.
    By their deeds will you know them! xx

    Because the houses are cheap.

    True - but also the scenery is brilliant, the people friendly and because many have their roots there and London is such a hell hole to live in.

    You can't eat a view, and I suspect there is a great deal of resentment from the locals.
