Some parts of Spain are so bad that ever the Spanish are terrified of them, some areas of Italy are no go areas, and in Greece there are regular drive by shootings on the streets of Athens.
Excuse me, but who lives in marginal areas are people of gipsy ethnos (not all, but the majority). Here and in any country where this people is. Where is a terrible inequality is in Italy. Of Rome until the south is poverty. It is not the industry and the opulence of the north of the country

I go to a lot of Rastros here in Spain and it makes me so sad to see the poor people (I am certainly not rich nor poor) and what they try to sell on their pitches to make a crust.
It is bloody criminal the money rich people spend on crap stuff that they don`t even need while so many peoples are suffering.
Trouble is it has been like this since time began and unfortunately will never change.

Thats just crazy.

Who gives a flying fart what anyone's reasons for relocating are? They're as valid as the next persons, surely? Who're you (or I) to call anyone's choices into question?

I'm reminded of the old fable.

An old man was sitting along a country road. A man on passing him asked "I'm moving onto the next village for work. Can you tell me if the people are friendly there?"
The old man replied "What were the people like in the last place you stayed?"
The traveller stated "they were really cold and unfriendly"
The old man replied "I'm afraid you'll find the people in the next village much the same"

Later another man looking for work passed the same old man on the same stretch of road. He also asked the old man "I'm moving onto the next village for work. Can you tell me if the people are friendly there?"
The old man again replied "What were the people like in the last place you stayed?"
The traveller stated "they were really friendly and hospitable"
The old man replied "I'm glad to say I think you'll find the people in the next village much the same"

"They're as valid as the next person's (reasons)"

This is the possessive. Therefore an apostrophe is required regardless of whether the possessed item is mentioned or not.


Here, a little lesson for those of you who appear not to have completed your junior school education:

It is John's dog. (Possessive)
Whose dog is it?
It is John's. (Still the possessive, even though DOG is not mentioned in this sentence).

Those are Bill's reasons.
Whose reasons are they?
They are Bill's.

They are as valid as the next person's reasons.
Whose reasons are they?
They are the next person's.
