    This country's full of people who hate their own country, yet just decide to be British when it suits them (during a sports event, or during the Royal Wedding etc.)

    I'd never leave.

    Interesting. I left England when I was 24, to live in Stockholm with my Swedish bird (\o/). Stayed for 8yrs in the end, and the moved to Amsterdam two yrs ago with another Swedish bird (\o/).

    Ive not missed living in London at all. I dont hate it, and of course miss certain things, but you meet alot of expats abroad, and the common theme is that people just get sick and tired of the place...the violence, dirtiness and general rat race feeling. But if you move, you have a right to complain.

    I never understand someone who lives somewhere and just moans about it. MOVE!!


    By the way Mick, do you actually know what you are doing with those wires, or are you just caught up in the moment, and feeling all English builder-ish? Be careful now.

    :D

    I feel reasonably confident, given that I have worked with electricity, electronics, telecomms and tech stuff all my life - that schnoodleing around with house wiring will be within my abilities.

    I'm a lot smarter than you might think, from the hogwash I post...............

    Mate I moan about my town all the time coz it's a dive! I simply wanna move to a different town in the next county yet can't coz me missus don't want to, all her "friends and family live here" and obviously too lazy to drive 40mins up the road to visit once in a while... so not all of us can MOVE, even within the country.

    No, they all speak great English, so it makes you alittle lazy to learn to be totally honest. I really am going to learn though out of respect.

    I speak fluent Swedish

    People always go on about how amazing America or Australia is to live in. My advice is if you hate it so much then pack your bags and go.

    In my year there have been 2 girls who have lived abroad for a while. One lived in the US, the other lived in Australia. What did they say? Living in England's nicer. I mean these places look nice when you're on holiday, and foreigners think London looks beautiful as well, but the grass is always greener on the other side.

    I'm not sure that many people hate their country, more that they hate the way it is run at times. Most of us wish to explore, to experience something different. I spent half my life abroad. I enjoyed nearly every place I went, apart from Cameroun in the 80s which just didn't really appeal to me personally. While I called Hong Kong home, I was proud to be British there and whatever the weather there was always something very special about seeing that patchwork quilt of the fields beneath you as you came into land. If I thought people had lived everywhere, visited everywhere in their own country and tried all that ours has to offer I might then understand a person hating their country. So much to enjoy and love about Great Britain. People just need to get off their arses and explore it.

    thats really interesting, i would have assumed youd be able to "get by" with Engish, but everyday life (supermarket, office job, reading the paper, ordering tickets etc) would be difficult with just English
