    Yeah paid relocation would be a lot of money and loving in Stockport is going to be far cheaper than New York city, so you might get a little more in New York overall but a lot of it is quickly lost.

    @Torbuntu well New York is a major city and Stockport is a town in the North of England. I'd imagine cost of living being more than twice as high in New York.

    @Torbuntu I think Stockport is a bit run down as well so it's probably one of the cheapest places in the UK. I think out of the two it would have to be NY even as someone from the UK!
