Welcome to the most expensive city in the world
According to a recent report by Swiss bank UBS London is the world's most expensive city.
Which obviously explains why everyone is swimming in debt
so what does it feel like living in the most expensive city in the world ?
With the congestion charges, ridiculous parking fines, council tax (and very soon another crazy tax from crazy ken to pay for the olympics) you really wonder how much more the average Londoner can take.
Don't even get me started on public transport
Public transport is so expensive that its probably cheaper flying to New york than taking a train to Manchester. I feel like i'm been mugged anytime i pay for public transport.
I suppose if you're one of those who works at Goldman Sachs then its all good (i am not bitter why should i be ???)
me, i'd rather live somewhere else...
The future is not bright (with orange)
Orange has got to be the worst company i have ever dealt with. I've had the misfortune of dealing with quite a few hopeless companies (e.g Northern Rock) but Orange has got be the worst. No wonder they feature on The Guardian's 'The worst of the worst' (as in one of the worst companies in 2006)
I've spent the better part of today dealing with the morons they call customer agents and i think i have had enough. I've been a customer for over 5 years and i would rather use a can and a string than remain an orange customer.
If you're still with orange i suggest you switch to another company, you've been warned.
I hope their legal department reads this (go ahead sue me...)
