Default UK has 'worst quality of life in Europe'

As a result, more than one in 10 Britons (12%) said they are "seriously considering" emigrating, with "broken society" the biggest concern for 59% of those questioned, followed by the cost of living (49%), and crime and violence (47%).

Maybe they'd be happier if they stopped reading the Daily Mail and voting Tory.

Although it is a long time ago I lived in England, I can't quite believe this is true.
Sure, the political correctness etc. is a bit annoying and there are places where I personally would not want to be seen dead in England, but there are lovely places with lovely people too. Would certainly prefer the UK over some other European countries...like, ermm, France....

Echo....

As I said on the other thread, and as Alexa says, it depends on where in the UK you live. North Yorkshire is very nice...especially when the temperature is nearly 30 C, as it is today!

What's the alternative - Guardian reading Labour voters? People who just moan about everything but never vote?

Avoiding the Daily Mail works wonders for me...
