There's probably 20 million too many people here.
Roads are clogged up on even the shortest journey.
House prices are insane.
NHS is on its knees (not in a good way)
London is a no-go zone
Kids are being stabbed up left right and centre
Wages are stagnant
Inflation is rising
Savings are non-existent.
I will work until I die
Crime is rampant, not enough police
Chavs are the dominant species
Immigration is not controlled enough, my home towns have changed beyond all recognition.
Government is a joke
Budgets have been cut
Honest law-abiding citizens are treated as criminals
Criminals are left alone
Rent is eye-watering
Food costs more
Fuel costs much more
Quality of life has gone down, not up
Redshift still hasn't ******* fucked the **** off
Other than that, the UK is bloomin' great!
I'd argue 15 million people is a bit of an overestimate.Meh, my little part of Blighty is actually quite pleasant and I enjoy a fairly comfortable quality of life. The fooking weather is grim mind.
Someone mentioned migrants before, do we even know (really) how many are in the UK? I'd heard the population was estimated to be closer to 80 million than the official 65.
There's probably 20 million too many people here. I live in East Kent, in my street the majority of residents are white English; the exceptions are the Polish lesbian couple and two families of Gurkhas. We're not exactly overrun, although I will agree that overall the immigration rate has skyrocketed.
Roads are clogged up on even the shortest journey. Word.
House prices are insane. I live in a 3 bed Victorian terraced house, my mortgage is covered by my Army pension so it's not exactly billionaire row.
NHS is on its knees (not in a good way) NHS is always "on its knees", that's how it's set up. Provide everything to everybody for free, and once you've run out of money scream for more.
London is a no-go zone Nope. I work in London, I love it.
Kids are being stabbed up left right and centre Kids involved with stabby gangs, in inner city stabby areas mostly. It's certainly not happening on my street.
Wages are stagnant Depends where you work. I'm due 3% this year
Inflation is rising Inflation Rate in the United Kingdom averaged 2.56 percent from 1989 until 2019, in Sep19 it was 1.7%. So no.
Savings are non-existent. Then save.
I will work until I die. I won't.
Crime is rampant, not enough police. Rampant? I haven't had a crime perpetrated against me any time recently. Fair one on Police numbers, but the money tap has been turned back on by Boris, so that will change over time.
Chavs are the dominant species Not in my street.
Feral kids Mine aren't, nor are those of my friends and neighbours.
Immigration is not controlled enough, my home towns have changed beyond all recognition. Agreed on immigration, but time changes everything, regardless of the demographics.
Government is a joke Vote for a better one.
Budgets have been cut Boris has turned the money back on.
Honest law-abiding citizens are treated as criminals I'm not.
Criminals are left alone Not that I have much info on this, but you may be right.
Rent is eye-watering Don't rent - buy.
Food costs more 1.7% more. Against my payrise of 3%
Fuel costs much more True. Bloody Iranians.
Quality of life has gone down, not up Not mine.
Other than that, the UK is bloomin' great! Yes it is.
Assuming this was addressed to me, remind me the population density where you live and I'll calculate the number of immigrants to your state to bring you up to English levels.
I'd argue 15 million people is a bit of an overestimate.

Gaius Maxiumus! the countries gone to the canines, the Pretorian Guard are useless and can't control crime, the Senate is full of self serving crooks, the children don't respect their elders, and young tearways are racing around the Forum in they high powered boy racer chariots!
Were they driven out or did they just realise there are no jobs and went somewhere more economically friendly.That would be a hard pass, we don’t let riff raff in. We don’t even have a refugee resettlement program here and we finally got rid of most of the Somali’s that managed to make here.
You really don't know much about Sparta do you.Ancient Spartan Naafi...
"Now I've nothing against gays but now they've made it compulsory in the army. I'm not having that sort of thing pushed in my face. Sparta has gone to the bloody dogs..."
"Aye mate. I'm thinking of transferring to the Persian Army, you only have to wear make up with that lot..."
