Emigration seems to be a topic of conversation now among friends and acquaintances, now that the prospect of a Brown-Clegg government is taking shape. Sponging fcukers I know like doctors, construction engineers and business owners are all thinking of going somewhere else, and I'm thinking of it too (got to persuade the majority shareholder yet, but that's another story). Where's the best destination? I favour the US, but Canada, Aus and NZ all have their attractions. We'd be looking for reasonable taxes, good education for the kids, work opportunities, safe neighbourhoods, English as the main language and a democratic government. In return we would work hard in private industry, and raise our kids as citizens of that country, rather than as displaced foreigners. Part of me says we should stay, and be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, but if the Tories lose this election we'll be a province of the EU in 5 years time, and it'll be too late for us as a family to gain any of the necessary permissions. Does anyone with experience of making this kind of move have anything constructive to offer?
