Yorkshire is a county split by dual economies, it has been revealed. The land where pudding is eaten first and cricket rules is seeing an ever increasing divide between rich and poor. Where certain areas like Leeds are prospering, former coalfield communities face worsening health, housing and crime issues. But a development agency called Yorkshire Forward has appointed itself the region’s knight in shining armour. Yorkshire and the Humber are to get an "e-business" region to unite their populations. And they thought they’d just get a nice fat government grant. Yorkshire Forward says these Northern folk need to forge links between business and education to help their poorest areas. They also need to use their best assets like the Humber ports. The plan is that cities in Yorkshire and the Humber will be linked to push technology forward for growth in the next decade. This will include the creation of a "virtual business school", linked to local universities. The agency also aims to encourage new businesses and expansions in the area via backing from a regional venture capital fund. And who knows, they might even get electricity up there soon.®
