Born in the UK I have seen the streets become crowded, poluted, noise polution, nanny state, health and safety out of control, the food poisened, people getting fatter, social degradation, lack of repect, kids out of control, parents/teachers/police powerless, chavs rule, ladish behaviour fri/sat nite, crap schools, your child can't go out alone, or it will probably turn into a chav, crap health care, everything in shops a rip-off, noone can afford a house anymore, debts out of control, noone talks to their neighbours, everything is taxed, no more seasons (damp constant autumn) it's all about money- you earn lots but blow it on cost of living, east europeans come here for the money only, they work like dogs and live like dogs - eventually they go home because they get tired. That's not what life is about.
This is typical Brit whinging.You can find many negatives in every country to whinge about.Some of those above are not even accurate-of course children in many areas can still go out alone but parents are more fearful(partly because of the hysterical crime reporting these days).Everything is taxed in most decent countries-go to a country with low tax and see what sort of life it is for the average person.Health and safety has resulted in fewer accidental deaths than ever before and chavs are not as bad as the equivalents in the past (eg skinheads).Its true people are getting fatter-in every wealthier society.
No of course it's not the fault of the British people it's just the way the country is run. approx 70% of my friends here are immigrants from various countries and they all came here for the money. Not one of them is happy with their quality of life. It seems like the only way you can make lots of money here is to buy houses, do them up as cheaply as possible and sell them for profit - and even this is contributing to the coutries decline. Now they want to go to Poland to do the same. (phew back on topic)
I too know many immigrants and most are happy with life in the UK.Those who are unhappy either came here with unrealistic expectations or intend to just save money and are not interested in having a life here.You mention "make lots of money".Those who strive to "make lots of money" rather than enjoy life are usually the least happy of all.
