    Mrs BP is even talking about moving down to London with me....





    The Mrs BP thing? Not so sure. London has lots of very expensive handbags..

    Indeed. All that lovely paid holiday (I get 30 days plus bank holidays), 15% company pension contribution, executive health plan, bonus and company car at my grade.

    What's all this tiresome contracting bollox about?

    A pro-Brexit voting permie from North Wales moves to anti-Brexit London for a contracting gig... I hope you will make an honest effort to integrate with the locals. Good luck and don't forget that your contract has a notice period and the length of the contract and all the sweet things you've been told mean nothing.
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    It's about taking a year off - including Bank Holidays - whenever you like.
    It's about stuffing £40k a year, tax free, into your SIPP.
    It's about being able to afford any gym membership you want.
    It's about having a bonus every month.
    It's about having a expensive quality car of you own choosing.
    But mostly... It's about not having to deal with the bollox of being stigmatised with a grade.

    Which hasn't been a problem for the last 28 years.

    London does not have locals. As a white, able-bodied, middle class, homosexual its only really sasguru and myself in that group. Except he's a sockie....

    Wales has lots of local sheep.

    I am tempted to say it could be worse. I could be Scottish. However that would be a lie. All the Scots are great. Except the ones who go abroad....
