Londoners Are The Meanest Of Them All
- New survey shows tight-fisted types congregate in the capital

IT'S OFFICIAL - the North-South divide does exist, at least as far as generosity goes. A new survey reveals that Londoners are far less likely to give money to good causes than those in the North.

According to the poll, a tenth of Londoners never give to charity at all, while four percent even admitted that they would prefer to donate cash less often. On the other hand, Yorkshire folk and Scots, bless their kind souls, proved to be the most generous of all, with only 6 percent saying they never gave money away.

More damning still, Londoners take home on average UKP520 pounds a week in wages, a third more than large parts of the North although the higher wages are partly offset by the higher cost of living in the capital.
