    If you don't want to be in a house share, you're gonna need a lot more than that.

    My best mate works for a bank and earns 80k a year, he still can't afford to rent a decent one bed flat in London.

    Meanwhile, out here in the sticks, £30k a year and you can live in a plush 3 bed house.

    If I get into the career I want I'd start on £35K. I'd hope to eventually be earning well in excess of £100K.

    If I don't get in then I don't know.

    Maybe this depends on the meaning of a "decent one bed flat". When I was having a look at flats and studios in London just some days ago I found a lot of decents ones for 1000 pounds/month and that is perfectly suitable for someone with an 80K salary or am I wrong? :confused:

    How much would you need to earn to live a comfortable life (which doesn't just include necessities but also luxuries) in London?
    If you live about 30 mins from London then 30k is enough but in central London about 80k I would say.

    How about you will get what you get and be lucky to have a wage?! Folk live on below £15,000 and many quite happy! The more you get the bigger the outgoings to keep up the image it appears.

    Noticed this... Folk with ''proper'' jobs feel the need to maintain a image. Therefore up to their eyes in debt lol. Whilst the laughing stock of many with their fake imagine Frankly I would not move from my current two bedroom council house no matter my profession/income! Provided employment was around Glasgow/Edinburgh.

    Seems to be greedy people here and more of a concern the money being the motivating principle rather that the drive needed for the job. So again you might have the qualifications but minus the personality , piss off !


    A bit like having the fitness/technical skills for Special Forces. If you lack the personality/mind set. You're returned to unit! Other words, piss off! Yer not suited.

    Why do folk going through university think that having the degree gives them the right to a high income and more so the right to that profession/occupation?

    I start university this September and I hope to God what I read here I don't need to listen at uni. If I do I will be as frank face-face as I am here!

    But had a laugh on this thread at many of you. Sure others have also.

    Considering the current shortage of social housing, that's an extremely selfish attitude to take.
