    I thought this was the State of the (UK) Market thread?
    Is there a market left in the UK?

      Just got to accept that London is expensive. In the US, New York businesses down shore to the Carolinas, which would be the equivalent of us moving dev up to the M62 corridor (Liverpool / Manchester / London) and making it a proper northern powerhouse that we were sold originally.

      A good dev up north would be on 60k instead of the London 100k while being same time zone, country and language while 2.5 hours away on the train.

        Different language surly?

        But £60K chap in Blackpool could afford a 6 bedroom mansion, £100K chap in London could not even get into property ladder and have £8K season ticket and need a food bank to survive

          Not sure what your point is.

            This GhostOfTarbera chap is a bit of an oddball isn't he?

            Just constant hyperbole about everything and claiming every contractor will be pleading poverty after April.

                There seems to be some new roles being advertised. But, all the agents are wfh and if you ring the number on the advert, it goes to voicemail. How on earth are you supposed to get in touch with the agents then?
