Right time to Back Home?

My friend who works in UK for about ten years is planning to come back her home country next year. For one lady who works in the foreign country for long period, she is wondering now whether to continue her life in UK.

She told me that the cost of living in London is keep going up and up. Compare to few years ago, spend 10 pounds can eat 3 days but now spending 10 pounds is not enough for one day. This is really horrible!

From what I foreseen, the world economy is getting down turn. Now is just the beginning and next year will be even worst. I do wish I am wrong.

Dear my readers, I need some advise please! Do you think this is her right time to come back?

I definately don´t think London is the place to be currently. With the unstable economic situation, being in one of the most expensive cities in the UK is not a good idea. I think she is quite right to leave and go back home. When I´m fully qualified, I´m going to move away as well... somewhere where the quality of life is high and the cost of living is lower! I hope she makes the right decision. Lena

People are really suffering so hard for living in london. I guess there will be shortage of people soon.

My friend has just moved to London and she is SHOCKED by the range of prices they have there... I have heard that England is overall a good place to live in (small towns all around the country have lower price tags on everything from rent to food), but London is different...

The cost of living in London is certainly very high, but is the cost of living in home country? Depending where she is from, the cost of living may be just as high.
