Heaven knows we’re miserable now…….

happyIT SEEMS fitting that in the week Morrissey released his autobiography, Harlow residents have been judged some of the unhappiest in the country.

The government has been trying to measure how happy we are as a nation and Harlow has some of the unhappiest people in the country.

People were asked on a scale of 0 to 10 how happy they were with 0 being ‘not at all happy’ and 10 being ‘completely happy’

In Harlow it was just 6.54. Nationally the average happiness score in England was 7.28. Overall Essex had a score of 7.25.

Of course, how many people in Harlow were asked is a good question.

Sure enough, our sister paper, www.yourthurrock.com reported last year that Thurrock was the unhappiest place in Britain.

That went on to make national news, when in fact when you drilled down, you found that the sample was of men aged between 50-59.

Likewise, around 100 Harlow residents were asked. Therefore, 79,900 were not.
