not a chance. i mean, i don't know how often people here go back to the uk (though many seem to have not been here long enough to have given it a good chance), but i go for business and every time it gets worse and worse. britain now has a higher per capita violent crime rate (excluding homicide and gun crime) then the USA, and the highest violent crime rate in Europe. the scots are running england and passing the prime-ministership around like it's a game of pass-the-parcel. sure, it's economy continues to boom on the back of cheap immigration, indeed in cheshire (my former home) they now have road signs in Polish. good luck to the Poles, they are the only guys doing any damn work in the area but britain's identity is disappearing and there's an emerging underclass sustained by politically-correct notions of non-intervention. i've lived in asia and various places in oz (latterly darwin), and i swear the energy and drive ex-Europe is just much more evident. and in australia, while the mad mullahs get short shrift - in the uk they get a handout to convert somerfields into a mosque. londonistan is not a joke.

So why are you in the MBTTUK forum? Surely you want the Australian forum?

You'd be wise to look at the site rules, rather than just jumping in with both feet and flaming.

If you think coming into this forum and bad-mouthing the UK is the way to fit in on BE, knock yourself out.

i haven't bad-mouthed the uk. i've expressed a personal opinion. i am british, i love the uk. i don't like what it is becoming and neither do many british people. geordie, look at the thread, i merely answered your questions.

i didn't intend to join, i was sending a few links of expat sites to a former colleague considering an overseas transfer. so they could see some opinion. i saw this site, and, yes the content of this thread fascinated me. so i joined, to add a reply. there is no casual visitor posting.

no mandtooz, i don't think you're stupid. i don't recall at any stage expressing that opinion either.

i would say however to all the bored housewives in this room wasting your lives tapping out your misery, staring longingly at the shipping containers, take a step back, and a long hard look at your 'problems' and put them in some sort of perspective. going back to the uk is one thing, making it your core daily activity to talk about it and have a virtual miserablefest is vomit-inducing. as someone said earlier (but no one complained that she flamed!) just !@#$ off home, then. we won't miss your whining.
