    There was a bit on the BBC news today about the cost of living. The interviewer walked around York - my home city. He interviewed three people - not one of them spoke with a York accent, and none of them was even from the north of England. We heard three opinions in southern voices interviewed by a reporter from the south.

    I think we'll see more of this as it becomes increasingly impossible to live in the south east due the cost of living premium. It's already becoming impossible for many people, even with decently paying jobs to find affordable housing.
    So people are casting the net further afield.

    Likely the reverse is also happening with the more buoyant jobs market in the south pulling people down.

    The days of a localised areas having sufficient of everything - people, jobs, amenities, housing etc are long gone for many parts of the country.
