I live in UK (Leeds) and frankly I would disagree with everything you have said (no offense intended!!). DBA salary differs depending on skill and location. I would have thought that mid-level DBA for non London/Scotland† area is as you say £30-35K/annum. From contractor rates I would say lower in Scotland and London could range from £35-55K.

Banks , city instititution may pay more but I am sure it is very hard getting in there.

As for transport I have worked in Nottingham 6 months ago (for Logica) and I don't see the public transport system there any better than Leeds,Manchester,London etc. They are all pretty poor. Unfortunately the underlying transport infrastructure has been left underfunded and badly managed for much too long.

Well, if u r in London, u wont feel the difference. I am in Nottingham in the Midlands and I can assure u that the cost of living here is low compared to the US. So is true for most of the other UK cities like Manchester, Sheffield, Glasgow etc...
Secondly, since the public transport system is so good in the UK, u can save money on ur car expenses if u wish to.

cost of living is low?†† I didn't see prices that low or different than the US when I was in London... did something change in the last year or so?
