I’m moving to Corby and retiring

I saw an advert at Charing Cross station this morning advertising the following:

"Homes in Corby on average cost 154% less than those in London."

It was one of those little adverts alongside the escalator, so I wasn’t exposed to it long enough to take a picture, nor to note the idiot company responsible.

Suffice to say that if the assertion is true, then on average, they will pay you £153,900 for every house you buy in Corby (based on the average London house going for £285,000). I’m not sure where Corby is, but I’m planning on buying the whole town up and retiring!

    If you did do that would you retire from writing this blog too? ;o)

    No. I’m hoping (as I’m sure is my extensive readership) that the blog will last as long as I do.

    Not sure if this is good or bad news, Lucy.

    As for you, Dominic, please be quiet…

    I live in Corby. Don’t move there. It’s cheap as chips but you get murdered. I live in one of the nicest streets in Corby and it’s still a shithole.

    It’s in Northamptonshire. I’d say it’s a little out of the way to be good for commuting, plus, like I say, you’ll get murdered.

    Thanks for the advice, Jack.

    I’m staying put!
