It must be a big blow moving from London to the North West of England, and many of the B.B.C. staff have been kicking and screaming about it.
But wait..... here's a few things to soften the heartache.
Say you have a house in Putney worth £750.000, after the move, you buy a much better house in Wilmslow / Prestbury for £500.000, pocket the £250.000, and Bobs your uncle.
You then get furnishing costs thrown in curtains- no problem, £1000,
carpets £3.000, etc, etc.
All of a sudden it doesn't seem too bad oooooop north. Alanthemanc
