I want to move to U.K. next month, Manchester and Glasgow which one is more cheaper to live in? I mean in renting apartments and other commodities.

Average income in uk is below breadline. It works on house hold not singles. So to take advantage stop working and do just what the brits do, ckaim benefits if you are english or be a slave!

I've received a job offer of 44k base salary. Is that enough to get by if we (me & my spouse) would rent something not that close to the city centre (like Rochdale, Bolton etc.)? Eventualy she would get a job of course, but can this salary cover both from the start?
Julian on Jan 01, 2020:
Not sure how number have the above prices but they are about 50 percent understated. A very basic one bedroom apartment in the city centre would be above £1000 a month. Soft drinks and water for a £1 in a restaurant???? Maybe in the 1980’s if your using this site to work out how much you would need for a stay in Manchester, I would suggest adding 50 percent to cover you.
