Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Compared to our nearest neighbours, the UK is one of the cheapest places to live.

Largely because the pound has dropped 20% in Value. I see the difference between Grneoble and Birmingham is an eye watering 1.97%. The difference being due to grocery shopping (much higher in Grenoble) versus rent (much higher in Birmingham)

You would need around 2,957.04£ (3,329.62€) in Grenoble to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 2,900.00£ in Birmingham (assuming you rent in both cities).
Quote:

if you want eye watering differences, check out UK V's Switzerland

Local Purchasing Power in Switzerland is 29.80% higher than in United Kingdom due to the 140% higher net salary in Switzerland. Exchange rates again.

the only problem is finding a job that pays 2,950 euros / month in Grenoble. I assume that is take home?

I've no idea about the B'ham job market.

@skimastaaah, thats about the same rate as I got for a bash 2 years ago. I'm inclined to agree with you. Toofy Grin

@stanton, you have been quiet for a few weeks. We all hoped you had seen the light at last. I don't suppose it had anything to do with the fact that the £ has been climbing steadily up until this week?

@ski3, …. "Stanton" is a Dutch national working in the EU/Austria. He has a right to his rather "odd" interpretation of the unique predicament that the UK finds itself in, and the strain and demise of Sterling against the Euro.

When I'm next in St Anton, looking for a taxi, I'll seek out the Skoda estate with Dutch plates on it and book a non-existent pick-up at Innsbruck!

Sadly recent European history puts the UK in a despot position. And you can thank 17.4 million highly intelligent Brexit voters for that!

@skimastaaah, absolutely, if people want to express themselves then they are free to do so. We all know the purpose of the posts by stanton are to troll the site though.
It's a position assumed of moral superiority and that all the other honest contributors to this site deserve such a condescending delivery of that view. Never intended for discussion but simple discord and antagonist timbre, cadence and disruption.
There's plenty of productive discussion of the main topic that assist people in forming their approach to legitimate concerns, even those it trys to taint with common baiting posts.

By my putting up a crass/provocative statement with first a trip wire word followed by a trigger word intentionally to assess affect, which has prompted it (the stanton) to make an assumption about my nationality, and then, after a hard days trolling, to be so incensed as to offer a judgement of my character. Oh what irony, to whom can it complain? Trolls trade union?
It's at this point while searching for that insult causes it to offer up their feelings about themselves and of their own character Very Happy

It's just contributed, with above statement, another element of how it should be addressed "Klootzak stanton " taxi driver Toofy Grin

Thing is, how can any self respecting online presence hold its head up high without a decent level of trolling? We should demand and expect a far more professional approach Very Happy Very Happy

right on time and conforming to type. Resorting to plain old fashioned name calling with a nationalist flavour, this is the next stage.

After choosing to perpetuate it's trolling of this forum switches to base level response without dialogue. How very predictable when confronted with their own behaviour that it feels oppressed enough to puke out this response.

It's persistent trolling while using exchange rate as a fulcrum to deliver its nationalist rhetoric seems perverse, on a ski fourm? Does that ultimately make it a pervert?

Scabbing off newsfeeds to throw on here is just not good enough. As if anyone in Europe is lacking any in depth contact with current affairs rolling eyes

Is this what it's life has really come to? perhaps a sit down and a long look at their past will enlightenment it.

There are many informed useful discussions on this forum, the OP of this one makes sure this thread isn't one of them.

My business trades at events all over Europe. Our biggest single event, by some way is between October 28 to November 3rd in Paris. If a deal happens my revenue falls by maybe 10-15% overnight due to FEX and if there's no deal they may stop us trading on 31st and I lose 50%.
I'm probably buggered either way.
