    I've been looking for job for a long time and all they say is im not suitable. Employers are just a bunch of liars. In fact it's so much easier to find a job outside the UK.
    Looking for a job in UK is difficult. All this effort, for what? You get peanuts for all you do. Low pay, high tax. Not worth it. But thank you for the advice. I gave up looking for a job long time ago in the uk and now i am happy that I left the country because all i did after university was to waste my time there looking for work.
