    You forgot no. 8.
    You can sell your 1 bed above a kebab shop in Hackney and buy 3 houses in Germany.

    Sure the roaming countryside around these 3 houses smells a lot better too.

    Last time I was in the German countryside it smelt of manure.
    But you're probably used to that stench since it's similar to what emanates from your gob.

    There is only 1 good thing about London. Jobs.
    What is the difference between ignorance and indifference? Don't know and don't care.

    Yup, earning £80k per year to spend £12k on train fares instead of that £68k job in Bristol. Makes perfect sense.

    You could choose to live in London. You'd only have to spend ~£140 per month on a Zone 1-3 Travelcard and have an extra £10k to play with :-)
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    And then £600K for a terraced house.

    Seems a bargain for that £70K job.
