Research conducted by PriceWaterhouse Coopers, in association with the thinktank, Demos, has named Preston - the UK City whose Labour-run Council's socialist policies saw it labelled the "poster child of Corbynomics" - as the most improved urban area in the UK to live and work. The annual research, called the Good Growth for Cities 2018 index, measures the UK's biggest 42 cities and uses indicators including health, income, skills, housing affordability, commuting times, environmental factors, income inequality and new business starts. Unemployment in the winning City fell to 3.1% last year, compared to 6.5% in 2014. In addition, Preston has seen improvements above the national average in health, transport, residents' work-life balance and skills across the entire population, from young to old.
