    I am not sure what rate do they need to offer me to move to London?
    I guess £1000+/day for up to six months will be OK.
    Never been on < £450 in Scotland, who needs London anyway?

      For me to suffer that tuliphole, put another 0 on the end.

        Rates are great, if it wasn't got very high taxes and crazy high cost of living (housing).

        Might as well move to Brum...

          This is probably blasphemy as a contractor but, at a certain point, money really isn't that important (obviously it's bloody important if you can't feed/house yourself, but that's probably a good sign to move on and try something else). I agree that quality of life accounts for quite a rate margin, not to mention T&S. You can achieve a balance, I think, if you're willing to specialise and risk longer gaps between gigs that are on your own terms, but you have to invest the time first (probably as a permie TBH, otherwise there's that feeding/housing thing).

            I keep getting called to do gigs in Scotland - think I would need another 0 on that figure to endure the Jocks & the midges
            How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

              I thought Manchester was a tulip hole until I drove through Brum

              Now I use the toll road to avoid at all costs
