Foreigner explains North vs South divide in the UK

Thoughts from Alanna

This week I wanted to try to explain the North-South Divide in the UK (but primarily in England) As a Canadian living in the South East of England, I thought it might be an interesting topic to dive into! Wow! Who knew how complex it would be?? Are people already upset in the comments? I can only imagine.

Check out the North-South article I mentioned if you’re interested!

Hope you enjoy!!
