When I was selling my house a British couple came to view (in Portugal) I asked why they weren't returning to the UK the reply was "because it has become a nasty little country". I was upset because we were leaving to care for our relatives, so we had no choice. The words have stayed with me ever since. It is becoming nastier.

Don't bother to post any replies. I find myself with better and more urgent things to do. Thank you very much though for your kind attention. I wish you all luck in whatever you decide to do.
There is no need to leave a forum becuase people disagree with your views.....it happens every day here and is part of forum activity.

As for people wasting their time!!! Well watching a soap opera, casual conversation in a pub and dusting the house could all be deemed a waste of time but people do get some type of enjoyment out of doing it, being part of a forum is no different.

If people don`t post replies then the forum largely ceases to exist, so your final bit of advice is not advisable.

Looks like you were correct about the grenades, along with a few tank busters!.........

I am off to Scotland to visit in June, against the clear advice from the OP.
Do you think I will be safe?

I think you`ll be tracked by the security forces (those that wear black boots and have moustaches) and also you don`t want to fall ill and end up in the sub human standard hospitals there. Take thermal underwear as well, as the sun doesn`t shine in Scotland.

I was thinking of getting a medical kit together in case I have to stitch myself up in a draughty hospital corridor.
Perhaps some plaster of paris to enable the hasty fashioning of a cast in the event the nhs have run out.
My biggest concern is the dogs though, is it only England that has gone to them or does it stretch across the UK?
Should I carry some jerky in my socks as a quick means of distraction whilst I make my escape?
I already have a disguise prepared in order to foil the Orwellian cctv units but can anyone think of any other measures I can take to survive 2 weeks in the UK without death or serious injury?

It is not that simple. I officially left too but my account is still here and like a junkie, I return.

I have heard that suffering patients are left in the corridors and are even left outside the hospital as there is no space for them inside...........I only hope they bring their own umbrellas with them

I think the rabid beasts are everywhere these days and they want blood and not jerky (whatever this is!!!)

The removal of your head and fingers may well confound cctv and the fingerprint scanners.

I must away to my bed after a long disturbed night. Please don't trouble to reply as I shall promptly leave this forum. I don't really know why people waste their time in this kind of exchange.

Come down from the clouds its you who are living in cloud cuckoo land.

possibly the most arrogant post I've read in a very long time.
