MODS? If only for the title FFS. :roll:
Why? The MODs are usually pretty tolerant of crap spelling.

Oh, I see... :D

Why do so many who grew up in the UK now feel they have to move abroard?
Are you including the dark-skinned ones who grew up here, or did you have something else entirely in mind?

Well if you want a serious answer to that question I can give you my reasons:

1. The Nanny State.
2. Everyone one else seems to have rights but no responsibilities.
3. Its to bloody expensive to live here.
4. The Nanny State.
5. The tax regime.
6. The probability that if you defend yourself against a burglar/mugger/happy slapper you'll probably end up in a conversation with a judge over reasonable force and paying compensation.
7. I'm getting old and the cold and damp is getting to my war wound.

It's a dubious title for a thread though isn't it?
I don't know about how many people are emigrating but I know I would rather be in a) Canada or b) Germany.
Canada because it's Canada FFS.
Germany because I happen to like the old Deutschen, it's cleaner and there's w@nk booth's in most city centres.

Depending where you move of course;

Eight or nine months a year of sunshine,
Lower crime rate,
A government that doesn't breathe down your neck,
Cheap booze,
A police force that enforces the law rigorously and isn't afraid to give yobs a shoeing but is usually polite to the law abiding.
People who still talk to their neighbours and look out for one another.
Clean hospitals.
A cheap and efficient public transport system.

All the little things that stop life being a bag of shite like it is in Blighty.

Tax, living expenses and climate of this country are making me seriously think about retirement abroad ... South Africa being considered.

Once abroad can I then be considered truly British?

Of all the reasons I've ever heard for emigrating that has to be the most compelling...... 8)

Facts, figures?



In the period 2001 to 2005 - 503,000 British-born citizens left the countr while at the same time the population of the country grew by 0.5% per year.


Only half a million in 5 years? Don't seem to be a mass case of "run away run away" just yet then

John, Where are you describing? Utopia? Paradise? Please tell.

0.5 million is a fair old fcuking whack if you consider that most of them will be taking a trade with them (otherwise how could they afford it?) leaving behind a bunch of ill-educated spongers. "Run away! Run away!" may well be the cry sooner rather than later.
