I know about recent stagnation in social mobility Dove.  It'll be even worse once this business of student fees kicks in to the statistics.  Crazy, short-sighted policy.  Labour govt wasn't it?  Clever Socialism at work - not.

Time. Big garden (2 acres) in Cornwall but full time job in London. Roll on retirement (5 years and counting)

See original post

 I've an idea ... we'll have your place in Cornwall and you can have our place in Norfolk ... both have lovely coastlines but you'll be able to commute daily and get rid of your London pad
