That is absolute crap.

I have no idea where they get this rubbish from.

The biggest mistake of my life was probably moving back to the South.

I earn more money down here, but I pay ridiculous money to keep a roof over my head, the people are ruder, and if I was in a position to do whatever I liked, I would accept a MUCH lower paid job and go back 'oop narf' because I know I'd be much bloody happier.

Spammers like this pee me off. I've reported it, did you?

I agree with you Kernunnos, I moved from Sheffield to Northampton and it is more expensive here. The nearer you get to London, the more expensive it gets...

the majority of 'second homes' in the Dales, the Moors and the East coast villages are owned by Southerners wanting to get away from the South.

By 'quality' they obviously mean 'material wealth' and ablility to attain material 'posessions'.
"employment, earnings, home-ownership, the environment, education and health" blah blah blah.
I have met people who have all these things yet they are ungrateful miserable bastards and mean, stingy c*nts with it. Some of them are Northerners who have moved south.

Also, I find that the health service is better in Wales (the South anyway) . Amongst others, London has plenty of Yorkshiremen who do nothing but blather about how good Yorkshire is, but don't live there, along with jocks and Scousers who have more then 20 for the coach fare. They could be one reason that real Londoners move out.
