Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Firstly you did not mention it was in 1994 that this riot took place, and now we are putting the police down, and secondly I was not paid by the public sector for most of the time I worked in the UK.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Well actually I don't think you did read it.... it says that most crimes are not reported and are not included in these statistics.
And yes, back in the good old days of 1994... You do realise that...

Yes I do and have first hand experience as it was part of my job to help these people. The UK pays people well for being unemployed or handicapped or whatever. No-one should have to go without...

Social deprivation in the UK, Which year are we talking about here? The Unemployed and unemployable get the best deal in the UK. The minimun wage is more than it is here in Canada, and the only...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Hmm, yes the UK is good for that. I see you haven't seen crime, drugs or the like, but a good riot or two is just great fun....I think I may have seen a few of those in my time here in Nova Scotia -...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

I hope not, and I guess not everyone sees the world from my perspective, and that is probably because of the job I have. But I have worked in the ER both there and here and it is vastly different...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Yes I know what it means, and no I was not attacking you personally, I was attacking the comments you made which if you care to read back seemed to be directed at me.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

I can't say how bad it is in the UK as everyone has their opinions on what makes a place bad, but when I first moved away from Scotland it was almost 7 years before I went back, and in that time the...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

I also lived in a village in the UK, but there was still a population of 'underclass' that is no longer a minority. I have to ask how long ago you lived in this rural area? I moved here just over a...

I recently moved to Nova Scotia from Scotland, and though I miss my old home very much, I could never contemplate going back. I may be biased being a Scot, but I lived in Manchester, England for 5...
