I'm looking at coming back to live in the UK, after not paying tax abroad for a while. I earn what I thought was a decent ish salary, but after tax/NI etc it's looking increasingly like living hand and mouth. I've no idea how young families, nurses and teachers etc cope.
I've been looking at rent in the suburbs of London and my eyes are watering. You can't get a 1 bedroom flat for much less than £250 a week.
Whats more lots of people seem to have new cars, take holidays abroad, buy new carbon road bikes...where the hell does all this money come from?!
