    It looks to me that you are using the great recession as a great excuse. For your information I was not made redundant, I was constructively dismissed. I ask again, why didn't YOU apply for the vacancy and relocate like you expect me to? Do you consider manual work beneath you? As to my moving now, it just wouldn't be viable with all the experience, plus there is no guarantee of me getting my JSA again should things go wrong.
    Like I said before, I don't know if I saw this vacancy or not, without knowing the company name or what the job was. I note that you were constructively dismissed; did you take them to an employment tribunal?

    In terms of manual work being beneath me, I've already stated that I was willing to work for the minmum wage, but still there was nothing. I took one job which was only for one week, doing a survey of room usage for a university; it involved walking all over the campus and was bloody tiring, so nobody can tell me that any kind of work is "beneath" me.

    But for both us, that's all in the past. My question for you was simply why you don't relocate from the IOW now, given that there is no work there. I don't understand what you mean by "it wouldn't be viable with all the experience".
    Don't blame me, I voted Labour!

    He said he had a high flying job in financial services.
    I never said my job was "high flying", if only. But it does involved skilled technical knowledge, and most people on this forum (with the possible exceptions of Scrotnig, Chris Mitchell and Bob Bobson) wouldn't have a clue how to do it. I think this gag about me sweeping floors has passed its sell-by date.

    That is because he has a couple of spliffs before he starts his shift.

    I meant expense, which would be a pretty bleeding obvious typo to most people. The other reasons I have given still stand. By manual work I mean getting your hands dirty, grading tomatoes, sorting parcels, walking 8 miles to work and back every day. Walking around a college is not manual work. I note that you eventually accepted a cleaners job in a bank which means you have gone up slightly in my estimation.
    Still strumming after all these years

    Like I said, I was willing to do any kind of work for the minimum wage and I've also stated many times that my current job is a skilled technical job, so there is really no point in continuing a discussion with somebody who keeps coming up with the same crap which has already been dealt with.

    As for not leaving the IOW, expense my arse, if you don't own a property there you can move any time you want, if you get an offer of a job on the mainland.

    I used to respect you but frankly, the "professional unemployed" like yourself and Parasitestreet get on the tits of people like me who have to get up on cold, dark winter mornings to go to work.

    Good luck in your job search ... assuming you are really trying.

    Like I said Joe, people are entitled to change their views over time.
    And I correctly pointed out that you contradicted yourself on a fundamental issue. Your desperate back pedalling won't get you out of this one.

    Flimsy, self contradictory clowns like myself are more likely to change their views than consistent, principled people like yourself. Which explains why you don't go round contradicting yourself.
    Quite.

    He mops floors on the 14th storey of a bank, so technically he does.
