Britain for the Britsh in the 21st Century

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by CharlieBubbles, Oct 22, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Why do so many who grew up in the UK now feel they have to move abroard?
     
  2. MODS? If only for the title FFS. :roll:

    I thought it was a quiz!
     
  4. Who are the Britsh?
     
  5. Why? The MODs are usually pretty tolerant of crap spelling.

    Oh, I see... :D
     
  6. to escape from moronic illiterates like the thread originator would be tempting............
     
  7. The Celts are emigrating??
     
  8. Are you including the dark-skinned ones who grew up here, or did you have something else entirely in mind?
     
  9. British go home!

    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.

    What a good reason for me to go as well. :D
     
  12. Facts, figures?

    Are you trying to start a debate or are you just making a statement about the number of Ops Britain is committed to?

    Apparently they are people from UK who go to live 'abroard'...
     
  14. 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.
     
  15. 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.
