Re: Europe is looking better..

Not really.

I live in Asia and often have recruiters send me emails about jobs. I add up the costs and factor in the exchange rate (and tax uncertainty) and find that due to the exchange rate the UK doesn't pay very well anymore. Now USA, Australia and most of Europe pay better. Years of little pay rises and a sudden drop in the pound value. It's not a personal gain thing, its a "now you are level with alot of other potential employment locations" .

ie. not competitive.
