Wow, that really brings home the shift from the NW.I checked the 100 ward level Pop Scores that have the highest weekly Pop Score at that very local level.
THE worst one in the UK is Summerfield (West Midlands) with a scary weekly Pop of 1293.
Central Burnley at 737 is the only one outside the midlands, south or east in the top 10.
Castleton in Rochdale at 677 is the first GM ward to appear at number 20.
Moorside and Sholver in Oldham is at number 40 with a score of 600.
Fairfield in Bury is at number 58 with a score of 560.
Langley in Rochdale at number 65 with a score of 547.
Leigh South East in Wigan is at 94 with a score of 509.
And Newall Green in Manchester at 96 with a score of 508 is the only other GM ward in the top 100, And the only Manchester City ward in the top 200 listed.
There are a couple of others from Bolton, Salford and Bury in the 100 to 200 numbers but it is nothing like it was two or three weeks ago when GM dominated the list.
There was hardly any wards south of Birmingham then either but they are getting more common.
Must be a bonus typing relatively good news recently.
