Inverness & Nairn and Moray, Badenoch and Strathspey - number 4 in top 10 worst places to live in UK

A report in the Independent states that the best place to live is Solihull according to the Quality of Life Index conducted by energy comparison site, Scotland is where the worst places to live are to be found according to the survey.  The Independent article mentions lifespan, salaries, and hours of sunshine but it looks pretty much a blunt instrument to lump us in with the likes of Inverness as 4th worst for example. There must be a series of other criteria too but whatever the metholodgy Nairn is mentioned and that has already gathered some self-defeatist traction out there on twitter. Let's hope this survey is just a five minute wonder unlike the Best Beach in Scotland tag that Trip Advisor bestowed upon us in recent times. More in the Independent here. 
Step forward the Political Leader of Nairn, Badenoch and Starthspey to quickly refute this nonsense? What do you think about this Liz?

Usually these lists are simply marketing material to generate publicity for the company compiling them. Best ignored.

All of these 'surveys' are meaningless nonsense. As Mr. Turner says, best ignored.
