I Love This Country, But Enough's Enough.

Just been scanning around on a property search site, 160K for a 1/2 bed flats. Aaahhh, I tell you what this is getting past a joke. It's got to get to the point where enough is enough and it's time to emigrate.

Come back home when things have changed.

i dont love it anymore. i realised last night that the country and the population is just plain crap.

on top of that why would i want to even live here anyway. its rough, dull, grey, cold, rainy and plain nasty with no british culture other that a slags pub every friday without fail. same pub. same faces. same times. not to mention your being battered by your own government in tax and house inflation.

controlled council building backed by unseen businessmen party contributors.

and thats the truth.

englad is dreaming.

I guess it depends where you live and the memories you have of the area. I've lived in the same place all my life and had no feeling of ever wanting to leave. I scanned around European websites recently, you can buy an average house for average money not a flat for a fortune.

I don't want to have to go to work all bloody day and come back to a hole which I struggle to keep payment on, what's the point in that existance.

I remember when the Conservative did there back to basics campain great idea, shame about the Hypocrisy.

S$$t,

I'm mr boring, mr sensible saved all his life and I still don't stand a chance. I mean for f$$k sake.

I don't know: Soccer AM cheers me up with the people it gets on. The British public is nicer than it sometimes we realise.

Word of advice (and I'm not talking fanny packs).

If you go to Australia, you'll get sick of being told that Australia is the best country in the world and of sights such as supposedly impartial newsreaders wearing Wallabies jerseys before big games (it gets on my nerves, and I am, indeed, Australian). The biggest offender is on Channel 7, David Koch (pronounced cosh, unfortunately) or "Kochy" as he, and I suspect no one else, refers to himself. Interestingly, even the locals are getting sick of this endless partisan coverage of news and sport. In the Olympics, we missed Steve Redgrave winning his historic gold because Channel 7 (aka lowest common denominator TV) were showing the heats of an event where there was an Australian team competing as also rans. Sad as this is to admit, I rang CH 7 to complain and was told roundly where to get off by fulminating nationalist on the line (I was being un-Australian). However, locals have complained about similar ridiculous scheduling decisions in the recent Commonwealth games, so perhaps Australia is growing up as a nation

Just like every speech by a US president has to end "God bless America, the greatest country in the world", endless statements of superiority is a sign of insecurity and I wish we'd get over it.

That being said, I'll be heading back there for good at some point in the future... it is a fantastic place and still rewards hard work and risk taking (as long as you're not a tall poppy).

I've never loved it. A lot of the scenery is nice and the country might have been worth loving in the distant past, but I should have emigrated as soon as I left university: had Thatcher not ripped out some of the worst excesses of British socialism by then I'd have been gone without a second thought. About the only reason I stayed was to raise enough money to travel the world and decide which country I'd prefer to live in.

As far as I can see, Britain is in deep decline and fixing the deep-seated problems created by post-WWII governments will probably take at least another generation. Why would anyone want to stay here?

So true! Isnt Brian Hendersen dead yet ffs! He's been reading the f'in news since 1970! The being 'un-Australian' thing is bit too. Where did that rubbish come from?

True too about sport, my husband hates that.

I hate to say it, but I think that it's a hang over from the days of insecurity and cultural cringe. The guys back in Australia just need to relax a bit... they have less to prove than they think they have.

Humphrey B Bear still going too: he hasn't changed a bit.

The Brits are the friendliest and fairest people on the planet.

East, West homes best!

You just have to live abroad for a while to appreciate what you have here.

Taxes are not as high as most of our European neighbours. Neither are food etc prices.

I disagree. Coming back to Britain after six months abroad was about enough to get me on the first plane out of here.

Why are you still here then?

Because, uh, I'm a skilled worker with money, so I can't just hijack a plane to whatever country I want to live in and demand asylum when I get there?

If only I'd been born in Afghanistan and spent my life herding goats, I'd have my pick of the world, but unfortunately I wasn't that lucky.

amen! there's loads rubbish here but once you get out there and live in a couple of different countries you'll find out just how relative it all is and, relatively, this country is extremely lovely! and I write as someone who is being shafted by it at present. :huh:

Your reply doesn't wash. For a skilled worker with money the world is your lobster!

u buch of suckers. It's official - £49 out of every £100 you earn goes to fat =******* gordenron Brown. And whats left? 17.5% goes in VAT.

Run.

Don't walk, RUN AWAY from the sUK.

I must say CIUW - I hope that I spend my money much more responsibly than Gordenron spends my money :angry:

You're overseas now aren't you? Moved for good? Whereabouts?

Yes, it's mighty blighty crap living here for what you get in return - I cetainly don't want to be old and living here that's for sure. I can't imagine what things will be like in 30 to 40 years time when I'm old - all the negative stuff, will it ever get any better or will we just decline further?.

Germany looks REALLY cheap.

How about this with FORTYFOUR bedrooms!!!!

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-607...y&chnl=overseas

I'm sure you must be able to get decent 1/2 bed flats for peanuts.

Awesome! We can each have a bedroom for about 3500euros if we can get 44 of us together.

Further to the post above, I think that UK taxes are now quite high, maybe not much higher than the rest of Europe but that's hardly a great comparison...

To all those folk rubbishing the UK - please close the door on the way out.

No one cares if you leave. Just stop throwing your toys about and go.

There are plenty of people lining up to take your place.

Bye then....... :lol:
