These comments are the reason why my family are leaving the UK, the comments are not mine but give a insight to what a dump the UK has become..
I'm a 22 year old male and left the UK at 21 to live in Australia and again like many people have said on here. It is one of the best things I could have done.
The pay in the UK is disgusting.
The average pay here for a very average job is $20 an hour that is £12 an hour, thats just for stacking shelves at supermarkets. In england people get payed £5 an hour for that job and get 23% taken off for tax in Australia it is only 10%. I realise now that people in the UK genrually have no money cause the jobs are paid so low and taxes are so high. when people have no money this is when you get lots of council houses and benefit options cause there is just no other way. even people with trades are getting like £12 an hour which is nothing really. tradesmen in Australia are getting $30 an hour which is £17 an hour and only 10% tax. The UK only has 3 warm months of the year. Here it is warm all year round. The sunlight makes you feel happier and more relaxed and posotive. The UK does not get this feeling. The more I think about it the more I realise there is nothing good about the UK anymore. I'm 22 and i'm telling you now there is no jobs out there. I have to go back to the UK in June for a few months and the thought of going back makes my stomache curl. I just hope it is a hot summer because i am climatised now to hot weather. But I am planning on leaving again in November to go to New zealand. As there is no fiture for young people in england anymore. when i go back this summer I will not be working and the only reason why i wont be working is because the people in the UK are impossible to work with. There either nut cases, rude, unfriendly and very bitchy 2 faced negetive and try to pull each other down to make each other feel better. And I am far to good for that kind of world.
My wife and I are both professional people in the upper tax brackets. About 5 years ago, we started to realise that Britain had basically become a chav and immigrant infested rathole where the so-called liberals had taken over and - in the best traditions of idiot liberals everywhere - were so far out of touch with reality that theyd taken a proud country and turned it into somewhere I wouldnt even feel comfortable taking a dump on.
5 years on and we find that most of our circle of friends have left the uk for other countries also. I havent been back there and have no desire to do so. Goodbye uk, we hope you choke!
I'm 24 years old and I've worked since I was 16. I can honestly say this country is ucked (pardon my French). I work hard, I take pride in my work I own my own house and from dawn till dusk I'm constantly doing something. What reward do I get for being this way? uck all! The government taxes the hell out of me , Income, council etc. I go out on a Friday night, have a good time with my friends and what happens when I walk home? A bunch of mindless yobs carrying knives attack me, kick hell out of me and now I'm partially blinded in one eye. I work hard to give them a roof over their heads, food on their plate and ucking money to buy their foul shit like cannabis, valium and booze through taxes. I cant do a thing to defend myself because it's a well known fact the justice system makes an example out of people like me. Yet lowlifes get 'HUMAN RIGHTS'. I can imagine if I had hurt one of them I'd probably be in prison by now cos all the do gooders would be saying 'YOU CANT DO THAT' What can't I do ucking defend myself against a large gang of mindless, drugged up ucking retards with knives? Same thing happened to a friend of mine... A ROYAL MARINE WHO FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY on leave from Afghanistan, out having a drink, gets thrown through a chip shop window by two lowlife roidheads. Nothing happened to them. The police took to long to prosecute them and they got away with it.
Be a lowlife and live the high life and do what you want...
or be working class and be a slave to lowlifes...
That is modern day Britain.
I'm leaving this shithole when I get money together.
The HHG and sleeping beauty are leaving this dump as I now have a job offer in Alberta Canada. The pay on offer and the other perks take my wage per hour to over £20.00 per hour at least to start on, then it goes up after the trial period. Car included aswell and the company paying for relocation. We just have to wait for the work permit and skilled visa to come through, this will take 12 weeks tops..
