Leeds is a great city to work and live in, with amazing country sides all within an hours drive.

With great shopping centres, and many leisure centres I'm sure you find that there are lots to do in your free time.

Living expenses is much cheaper than the South and for sure you will get a lot more out of GBP 48k than you would down South.

As an expat who left the UK, in any country I work in I have to make sure I have to have a sponsor who provides me with health care and ensures i have a place to live.

Why doesn't the UK start this? Use previous tax returns to depict how much Free health care a person is entitled to, any migrants would have to show proof of health insurance prior to entering the country.

All britons moved from the continent to the islands because they were looking for another kind of life. It's not people not belonging to one piece of land or the other, but people with fascist, yet medieval mind who DO NOT belong to this world!!
