    You say it's State Benefits ... can you link to the UK government page that covers this and backs up your numbers?...

    Let's pretend this is an interview question .... you're on a 25 year mortgage, you're been paying for 5 years. Do you think any capital has been paid off the mortgage (assuming it's a repayment mortgage and not interest only)

    As for the LTV, that's part 2 of the question ...

    No one ever asks where the money comes from - cash in crypto. Put it in a bank account, then just say your capital is in the bank and show them a statement....

    Ever think that all those 'bad' companies you work in are maybe not bad, but it's you that's got a bad attitude? It seems in every post you enter here it's someone else's fault that you don't have a job; it never seems to be anything you're doing wrong does it? We have tried to help you and offer some...

    Businesses don't do that, or at least the many businesses I've worked for don't do that. Certain consultancies might if they have a vested interest in bringing in offshore skills, but UK based corporates don't.

    Are all 31 year olds such whingers, or are you an exception? If you want a job, roll up your sleeves and get on with it. If not, stop complaining.

    You're a contractor. You run a company. It takes work for a company to win new business. See the interview process as a sales process, that's...

    What do you mean by "a happy place"? The hospice? Or death?

    My wife didn't go into a hospice to die, I cared for her at home and she died here with me next to her as was her wish.

    And why would I want to punch people who are helping? Seems if you feel like that...

    No, you're right, I've not recently cared for my wife through end of life and worked very closely with these care staff, both NHS and private care providers. Good point. What do I know? ...

    You clearly have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. The patients are end of life, some only days left, some slightly longer left to live. I don't get the mentality to say those that are caring for them are vultures ..... you really have lost the plot my friend.

    Most get CHC...

    As you're a newbie, you may want a quick heads up that 'general' on this forum means a free for all, hang 'em out to dry place. It's not a place for the feeble, but it is a good laugh if you have a thick skin (or in some posters cases, you're just thick) ...

    £70k is not crap for London. Average salary in London in 2020 was about £41k so £70k is way, way above the average. You might not want to work for that, but many millions don't have the luxury of turning down that work.

    Don't get caught in a negative spiral Gigi. Most of what you say is your view but is not how things are in reality. No manager in any company does interviews for the sake of it - reviewing CVs, booking time slots with interviewees, getting all the internal interviewers in the same room, even finding...

    replied to Price of a pint in post covid world.
    Thanks. I guess that's where our line of work differs as I don't get technical tests for my roles - I may get asked to do a presentation but that's not the same. So for me, my skills/experience gets me in the door, then my personality/soft skills gets me the job (or not).

    Gigi - I guess...

    £70k a badly paid job? Some of you on here really need a reality check.

    I have a carer friend, she looks after end of life patients (so weekly she will be caring for a patient one day who didn't make it through the night). She gets not much more than minimum wage. she works shifts including...
