Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But if you move within area 6 of the Transport for London system you can cut those commute costs to under 200 pounds a month. And you will be able to find a 2-bed for 800 in that range (albeit in an "unpopular" - i.e., full of the wrong kind of regular people).

It's all about choices.

But, yes, I was just checking that a 1-way ticket from Luton to St. Pancras (30 minute train ride) costs 13 pounds off-peak. So spending 30 pounds a day commuting into London (plus some London public transport) does not seem impossible.

Economics is politics by other means
