    Lol. Just because its free doesn't mean its effective and quick. I've lived in Germany and although we had to pay, the medical system was PERFECT. I'd rather pay and get quality treatment than not paying and having to wait for so long or not getting proper treatment.
    Nothing stopping you from paying in the UK, there is such a thing as private hospitals.

    what do you mean probably? it definitely is free until 18 years of age when you choose to go onto degree level or not? you don't have to have a degree?
    As far as I know, your private schools cost. Some of those are below degree level as well.

    I thought going to private schools was fairly normal in the UK? Obviously, I'm wrong.

    Love love love the diversity, transport and how busy it is. Markets, food stalls, etc are so fascinating and being able to spend a day in London and cover most sites is amazing. When I visit my sister in Cardiff for a week and arrive in Paddington coming home there's just an immense sense of pride idk how to explain it I just adore train stations and how busy they are

    That's about it. Not a fan of the UK tbh. Doesn't suit my lifestyle.

    And I just commented that you can pay for quality treatment in the UK. The NHS is for people who can't afford that. To be honest I think we need more private hospitals in the UK, it should be like council housing: you pay for your own non-emergency treatment unless you are on a low-income.

    That's good and I will once I can afford it. My point was that quality treatment in Germany isn't tremendously expensive. Reasonable. Nothing against UK though. Its home to me.
