  1. For a town that is supposed to be the hub of the UK IT industry. The job market is very quiet. There has been minimal openings in the local area this year. All the action is in London
  2. I dont know what the figures are but I can vouch for Reading being down. I spoke to an agent the other week and he said prices are down 15% over couple of years. Judging by right move it looks to me that things are struggling to sell and there are things in my price range that just would not have been 18 months ago.
  3. Yup. It looks like every IT consultant is balls deep in Reading. Glut of properties available to rent.
  4. TBH I thought the same thing of New York. Affluent people and bums. Though SF is no doubt more extreme
  5. I think the important thing to note is not BT cutting 13k jobs. But BT leaving its London HQ to cut costs. If a company the size of BT cant afford it, expect many to follow suit. I wouldnt be suprised if they relocated to Slough or Reading. Most people commute anyway, especially senior people. So why not have an office where people live?
  6. The thing about the economist is its full of politics. They should call it the policist. Also, the advert is very up its own ****.
  7. Been on here for ages, but cant wait any longer. Cant keep giving away fees on agencies, deposits and sky high rents and have feck all left to show for it. Gonna bite the bullet and get on the ladder. Hopefully prices will come down and help my 2nd step. ?
  8. London turns nice people into arseholes, and violent people into killers. Everyone seems pissed off.
  9. They are too busy locking people up for assault (tube pushing and shoving) and minor drug offences. Burglary and theft is soul destroying. Ive never had the police lift a finger. All they do is fill another form in.
  10. Unless you have a private parking space off road. You cant have anything nice in london. There is too many pricks on the rob. Had countless bikes and mopeds stolen.
  11. Dont get me started on Nandos. Used to love it. But now just feel ripped off. 15 quid for tiny bits of chicken and chips with a drink. I honestly dont know how its so busy all the time. The meat is tiny.
