    If you could fix your housing and food problems, your country would be one of the best to live in the world.

    We could conceivably fix the food problems, but housing is likely to get worse -- we don't have a lot of land. :dontknow: In that respect, I think the United States or Canada are miles ahead of us -- you should see how wide American roads are. :moon: I might actually enjoy driving for once if I lived there.

    Yes! :fuhrer:

    I grew up in Saudi Arabia, where they're embarrassingly ahead of the UK in this respect. Then I came back here to find people using grotesque units like pounds and stones and yards. It hurts me. :cry:

    I know. See above. xD I'll be damned if I ever give my weight in anything other than kilograms.

    The housing problem can be explained by the massive speculation from foreign investors, as well as a bit of money laundering and tax avoidance. It struck me last year when some flats in a big building were auctioned in London; they said that many buyers were located in Greece (which was at the climax of their debt crisis...).

    Leaving the EU would decrease the prices by 15% in London - I read it somewhere - but the prices could even lower if the government prevented people located abroad from buying housing units in the UK.

    There is also an architectural problem, as it seems that you don't build very high, so space is not rationally used.
