It wont make a big difference... only 3.4 million people out of work in the UK as per DOL/ home office statistics.. one more wont make it any worser. if you are rich and can afford to stay without job / motivation / salary for one year, then come here... else stay put in you jobs for 1 year atleast....

pl. dont be so cool that you have a visa... having a visa is nothing as I have realised myself... if you have a job is what that counts... if you have one, then fine. else see if you could sail through the present crisis in your current jobs... since your visas are valid for 3 years, losing 6 months...
