The evil in this world

How cruel and heartless can you be to stab an innocent man to death in front of his child? Would anyone be sad if the murderer faces the death penalty?

This is why things like knife crime, terrorism and the availability of a new flavour of crisps are so important, despite them statistically being very minor issues.

It distracts from the fact that the man on the street is getting increasingly shafted in exchange for ever-deteriorating services, and makes sure any rage he might feel over this is directed at other men on the street instead of the people he'll never meet because they spend their weekends in the Caribbean.

There are quite a lot of folk in the department that live SE London and out towards Kent. This office relocation will mean them having to travel into London Bridge and then down to Croydon.

Do you know your firms policy on redun payouts, I can tell you working in HR the standard is 1 weeks pay per full year of employmentYou would also get paid your notice in full which is 4 weeks

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.5 weeks I believe Pranks. I saw that the standard redundancy pay on the Gov website that is what you have said, that’s what companies have to pay regardless and then obviously most have their own systems on top of that.

Aceit’s defo worth thinking about. There’s honestly nothing special about London anymore, it’s too run down and councils getting budget cuts every single year doesn’t improve matters.

Yeah. I’m glad I don’t live in London anymore. I spend a reasonable amount of time there, I have a facking tiny shoebox flat in Camden that I got before the housing bubble expanded in the early ‘00’s, pure luck really. I would say that it’s a much more enjoyable place to be when you are just passing through - you can enjoy all the good stuff without having to put up with the day to day challenges like the overcrowding, traffic, increasing crime etc. and I feel really sorry for people trying to get on the ladder there now, it’s beyond a joke the prices.

It’s one of those things where I love the buzz & anticipation of travelling down & staying for a few days, but am always glad to get back to the quiet of home!

Shared Ownership is the only option for most first time buyers in London. If they have a bigger deposit 40-50 grand let’s say then helptobuy is possible but nobody is gonna buy on the open market Zones1-4

Help to buy means you get a 5% deposit, so unless you want a house worth between 800k and 1m then you don't need such a huge deposit.

It is only applicable on houses/flats under 600k anyway.

All this commuting cost talk is crazy.

My missus drives a 120 mile round trip daily commute which costs about £500 a month. She likes driving and says she would prefer the drive to keep living where we do. Plus she loves her job and gets paid about three times my salary, which she couldn't earn locally. Every time she's raised leaving they just give her a raise which helps too I guess.

I have about a 900 metre walk to work or sometimes just ride my bicycle if I'm in a rush hehehe.

I don't know how you guys can keep doing it year on year.
