Just been informed there is going to be redundancies in the next month. Me arse hole is flapping a bit. Has it got this bad for you guys yet?

Yes. Next question?

I'm sorry I don't speak the Queen's English but I take it "redundancies" are layoffs?

also, from what I understand the recession is hitting you guys must harder because London finance sector is what pretty much kept the whole country moving alot. 25% of government revenue came from there no?

I suppose I'll just go and work in Dubai...maybe Oz?

I hear Dubai is not doing so well either...and Oz is trippy because they are not sure how much China is going to consume now that they are slowing down. All their commities go to China and that is what kept OZ running.

Dubai is just one big building site. They've got a trillion worth of work over there (I am Part II qualfiied architect) so that might be a possibility as they are not funded they have all the oil and their own money.
Maybe I'm wrong

all their $$$ is powered by international trade which due to the global recession is going down a bit. Also, Real Estate speculation which is going south as well. Numerous day laborers being laid off.

China is still booming so to speak so maybe you can get a gig there.
