“I am sure the reality in Middlesbrough or Sheffield would not be the same. Buying your own place to live is a very good thing to do if you can imo and any help that the state can give you to get on the ladder is a good long term idea for it as well, again imo.It gives people a greater sense of belonging to an area and gives more of a stake in an area and in society in general.”

That is true but its not really how it panned out. Many – especially from the ‘north’  - took the money and ran.  I travel on business to Austr / NZ every year and the number of ex pats in Western Australia and Queensland – as with Auckland & Wellington, is astounding.  I speak to many and its the same old, same old.  As soon as I hear the Liverpool, Yorkshire  or B’ham accent I ask the question and get the answer.   'I bought my Council for £10K – sold it for £80K and bought a 4 bedroom with pool in Perth for £35K.'  Many of these people are now successful in business in AU/NZ  with importing Brit products for Ex pats.  There are ‘Brit’ shops and traders all over the place. These are energetic hardworking people so good luck to them – the fact remains – they took the money and their talents elsewhere and we are left with the problem.
