Default Why would you not now move back to the UK?

Why wouldn't you come back and how do you and your fellow citizens view Great Britain.

Government?

Policies?

Multicultural or White?

Safe?

These are just some of the topics. I'd be interested to know.

Claustrophobia. That's a reason you don't hear very often. Don't know if I can even spell it. But seriously, everything and everyone is jammed in so close it really gets to me. Sometimes I feel like I want to push everything away and get some freaking breathing space.

Great Britain? Sounds like some war time news reel. Care to be more specific. GB, British Isles, UK or England?

At least you understood the question. Is it a shopping list?

Those topics are not very good.

Government? There might be a tosser in London, I guarantee you the one over here is even bigger!

Policies? Same as above.

Multicultural or white? Same as above.

Safe? Beaten up in UK town centre, shot over here.

So no difference really.

It's not going to stop me, but the biggest concern for me, going back, is the price of houses. It pretty much cuts out a large portion of the UK, unless I want to live in a shoebox.
