    Switzerland is probably gonna be my number 1 choice, mainly because of the skiing!
    Perhaps the only downside is that they're huge ‘nationality-racists’. Immigrants are frown upon more than in Russia so it's a good idea to be at least middle class. Then the downside becomes an upside.

    I think every argument necessary against this has already been presented but suffice to say as the result of this is banning drinking outside of your own home, thus causing the death of the pub trade, there's no chance of anything but a big fat noe from me

    My backup plan involves New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, Iceland or Russia in the order of preference. Hong Kong would be alright as well but I'm too lazy to learn Chinese.

    I still think it's a good idea.I think it got 5/7 votes aye.
    I still have fond memories of your first petition calling for the unification of all EU and EEA countries. Pretty sure it's the only time something has had 0 Ayes.

    And here we have a lot of anti-immigration politicians admitting that they themselves would try to become immigrants elsewhere, where they may not be welcome, if their own country went down the pan.

    It's not just politicians, most of the population want the right to live and work anywhere in Europe but don't want Europeans to have the right to live and work in the uk. The double standards are everywhere.

    It's "island nation syndrome", entitlement and patriotism unfortunately.

    This is the deputy leader of UKIP

    Their former leader tried to ban smoking almost completely, including E-cigs.

    It's a bill from a UKIP MP - nothing to do with us and indeed every Labour MP speaking so far has opposed it.

    By golly this is ludicrous

    Good thing I don't support UKIP on here or in real life.

    Surely just change the penalties for being drunk and disorderly? Unnecessarily complex bill.

    This bill doesn't at all effect those drunk and disorderly, this bill effects anyone that has had a bit to drink. I say "a bit" quite literally as it will effect those who've had as little as 3 pints, which would have virtually no effect on most people and for the light weighted in alcohol consumption would probably only result in a slight stagger if anything at all.

    Well sitting in the sun drinking Pina Coladas with gorgeous cuban birds wrapped around my arms seems about as likely as a USE forming in my lifetime so I'm sticking with Cuba.
