 Women 'are facing extinction' in rural England, leaving thousands of bachelors in crisis
Women 'are facing extinction' in rural England, leaving thousands of bachelors in crisis
The countryside is in crisis. But for once it isn't the threat of disease to livestock, the purchasing power of the supermarkets or house building plans that is ruining rural England. It is the extinction of that species so integral to a thriving village life - the eligible young woman. picked by AutumnLotus 4 years ago

...today scores of young woman from isolated farming communities are leaving the idyllic country life behind for the lure of the city, wooed by the prospect of better career prospects and social life.
... not to mention High Street shops and better hunting grounds for eligible young men (like disco's and clubs), I guess.

Villages in crisis now plans to organise music and comedy gigs in the worst ten towns to highlight the issue and attract more single, young women.
Hmmm... not sure that will work. They should learn from that movie The Stepford Wives for another strategy. Might even get some help for building those stone walls, etc.
