Have your say
another set of useless info figures,so should every body move south.
All my mates here have gone in their sixties or early seventies and most of them lived and worked in the s.east all their lives.
Also lot of good lads I played rugby with in Barrow in the fifties and sixties have gone,so where you live does not make one jot of difference.
I suppose some academic who produced those figures got his Masters Degree on that subject.
