Default Last Drawn Salary in UK before moving to NZ

The cost of living in New Zealand is high and the salaries are low. Hence, considered as a retirement village.

What was your last drawn salary in UK before moving to NZ?

I reckon what happens with so many other threads will 100% happen to this thread, folks with a fair bit of brass will be able to brag about how much money they've got and they earn in a Hyacinth Bucket style.

He wants the truth on an internet forum ? Especially about money ?

Buttons, animal skins and salt - Do you get bonus salt on a good week ? Yeah, I know, mind your own business !

To be fair, it's completely anonymous, so there's no chance for anyone to brag or otherwise. All quite harmless IMHO. . .

Dont really see the point of it though. If he was trying to find out if people earned more or less than they do in new zealand then maybe i could see the point but hes only asking what they earned in the Uk
