Grim up north

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

I’m al­ways sus­pi­cious of sur­veys even though they of­ten provide good fod­der for news­pa­per colum­nists

The lat­est “re­search’’ sug­gests peo­ple look­ing to find their for­tune should think about mov­ing to Peter­bor­ough, as it has been re­vealed to be one of the best places in the coun­try to make a liv­ing.

Peter­bor­ough came 10th but when I saw the places that beat it I was a lit­tle un­der­whelmed. They were 1) Burn­ley 2) Wi­gan 3) Barnsley 4) Mans­field 5) Blackburn 6) Telford 7) Aberdeen 8) Derby 9) Sun­der­land. I have a mate who comes from Burn­ley and last time I was there I don’t re­mem­ber see­ing too many chrome plated su­per cars razz­ing around Stoops Es­tate.
