Do they not...many don't but MANY DO...one very small point they let them get away with is the road tax on vehicles Millions of pounds a year are lost on this because they let them get away with brining in vehicles un MOT'd and Taxed.

I have no prob with the Poles I actualy served with polish ex-soldiers who have made a masive contribution to this country in the past abd now the present...As mentioned Albanians, Romanians etc asre a different matter.

HOWEVER

The British attitude is my main reason for leaving this HOLE which is toooo big to mention here but has been covered already in this thread,

Chavs and scumbags to mention a few.........of all races White , Black, Asia or whatever

Where do I start?

How much time have you got?

Hang on, I'm not in UK. Can we change the title to "Why do you want to leave Europe?"

I left to escape idiots like the_tones_guy, Pompeyboy and DAVIE_MAC. I wish you gits would stop following me around. Seriously, it was the attitudes of the Brits that used to piss me off a whole lot more than the immigrants.

Hi Bazzz, You don't know me so what's your problem?

Bit judgemental arn't you?

Who are you to call people with an opinion names? You're the one with a problem my friend.

Chris.

You can't use apostrophes properly and you quote headlines from the Sun as some form of wisdom. That's enough for me.

hi

im very interested with your thread. interesting to see why people want to leave the UK.

i want to leave for many reasons however i agree with most of your replys.

Im just confused as ive just been quoted on one of my threads as 'we those who state we leave for a 'new life' are the ones who are unhappy and usually come back.


sorry guys but perhaps you can help me but isnt that the reason most people go to get a new life. A better one.

To say the least i was quite upset by that

the uk is falling apart, why not bring your kids up in a better environment

Take most things you read here with a pinch of salt and become thicker skinned - no point in getting upset by the opinion of someone posting on the internet.

New life, different life, better life, whatever the reason, as long as you're happy that's all that matters.

I have paid into the system for 20+ years and it's these scroungers that are not allowing the UK Government to fulfil their promises to the pensioners and give them back the £££ they have spent all their time paying it\and the NHS can't cope, the schools are bursting at the seams 35+ per class.

I read a report recently that the UK was not even in the top 40 of county's education acheivers,Canada was number 4.

So rather than spend the rest of my life watching my back, I'd ratrher enjoy the quality of life I know it's coming....as soon as I can sell the bloody house!

Rant over~
Chris.
Interesting that you want your children to be well-educated yet you dash off a load of cobblers like that. Education comes from the home as well as school, you know.

It's nothing personal Chris, this is the internet after all
This subject nearly always causes a heated debate between those that are in the UK and think the grass is greener on the other side, and those who are in Canada and can see both sides.

Thanks for that, I really appreciate it.

Out of interest though and to better myself, I read my last posts and could not see where I'd placed a wrong apostrophe!
