Request for Financial Times story

We've had a request from Hugo Greenhalgh, who writes for the Financial Times and is working on a piece looking at the unexpected difficulties people have living on very high incomes.

In the past Hugo has had an enthusiastic response from Mumsnetters on a similar topic, and would be interested to hear users' perspectives on recent research which suggests that people are struggling to get by on £100,000 a year. It's been claimed that the cost of living in London means you now need to be paid £70k or more to live there - is this borne out at all by your experiences, or is it totally divorced from reality? How much would you say you need to feel comfortable about you and your family's future?

If you'd like to share your thoughts please do comment below - Hugo will be monitoring the thread.
