Come To London

Posted: 01.07.08 in Blogging

People often ask me why I dislike London so much. It’s the pretentiousness and arrogance of the place.

Take this morning. I received an email from the TDA trying to persuade me to get into teaching. It has announced its new pay rises for newly qualified teachers. From £20,627 to £20,155 marks a whopping 2.45% pay increase. That is of course unless you happen to teach in London, where starting salaries rise from £24,168 to £25,000, making a rise of over 3.4%.

If people are so drawn to London, why do they have to give bigger pay rises to people that would otherwise be there in the first place?
