Poland because it's 'better'
I'm not sure I ever said it was better. I said that I thought we could have a better quality of life. There are not many places I would rank as better countries than the UK but it depends on what criteria you use to rate better. It has many things going for it, but in England at least many people don't recognise their country any more from where it was in the 90's. As you rightly pointed out Atch it's all relative to personal circumstances.
The energy inflation is a global issue. We are facing similar hikes here and our government has refused to cut VAT. If you think Poland has the only corrupt or inept government in Europe, turn on the BBC once and a while I'm sure we can give Poland a run for its money.
BTW here is a vid I found when I was doing some research. Puts a positive spin on Warsaw right now
