    Got a letter saying if you earn more than the repayment income threshold of £21k, your employer will deduct repayments from your salary.

    Since my wage is 39k (Jimmy Seville u mirin) I'll have to pay back £112 p/m until my employment ends.
    It scales up though - if you're earning 22k for instance, you only pay back £7 p/m

    brb laughing at english wages from china.

    Chinese wages are not to different from english counterparts, but are quoted after tax, and your before tax sallery is never even mentioned.. so when they say this is a 22k job, they mean thats what you will actually recieve.

    People over here cant understand the english way.. they say 'why would you say you earn 30k a year, when you dont?'

    lol, you got me with the picture comment..

    Maybe a lot of poor, but..
    brb, more billionares in beijing then any other city on the plannet.

    Lets be honest, england wishes it was were china is right now - *****ing about only 7% growth this year.. only billions of pound surplus, only a major world player and soon to be most poweful country

    Spoiler:

    But being serrious..

    Both countries face major problems on the horizon.

    China is ****ed the day they stop growing their economy.. you can only make a 1 party system function whilst the people are happy.. unless you resort to violence.

    England is ****ed if it cant sort out the dire population collapse that will happen in the next decade. Young people are ****ed in england.. first there was a push to relegate half the 18 year olds to pointless degrees, to do the jobs their parents did without them... then there was a lack of good careers/jobs for life... next we have the first time in western history where 20-30 year olds earn less then the average population.. then we had the first time when under 30s on average earn less then a retired person... then we had the first time where a majority of under 30s were not likely to be able to buy houses..

    What comes after bad jobs and no houses? a lack of people ready to start a family. The average age is already 30, and its going to keep dropping, unless the goverement acts in some way to aleviate the issues facing young people in england.

    So yeah, two diferent countries, two major problems within the next few decades.

    Lets see what happens.


    Dream life: Be a 20-something in china, take advantage of the high earnings, low taxes, great opertunities.

    Be an over 50 in england.. retire to a life of luxory, that you will never get in china, in a country where the goveremnt tends to pander to the old.

    to be fair, it made me proud to be english. Not because it wasnt a bit cringe worthy.. but the chinese reaction:

    When china visits most countries, the chinese poeple dont care, they just view it as a random country to make money off.

    But when the queen and london was on every TV in china, people took notice. They respect england, and still have a real admiration for our country.. my university lectures the week after that visit, were full of students saying how much they dream of living in england/visiting/love the queen etc.
