    Yes, because the UK is the only country that is being affected by the current economic crisis. :rolleyes:
    The high prices in the UK are nothing to do with the "current economic crisis", the UK has always had a history of having ridiculously high prices and high taxation, generally because the mentality of British people is to just grumble and pay, and moan slightly. So companies basically regard us as push-overs and can safely push the prices up. Obviously, there's more to it than that, but in a nutshell I feel that's where some of the high prices come from.

    YES moving to the US next year after I finish my degree. My bf is American so we'll probably end up there long term. Can't wait!!
    That said, I do love some things about England. The historical stuff is second to none for me, and you can't beat pretty English churches and villages and all that jazz. So I'll be back a lot..

    Well I know I'm going to live in Italy and Spain for 4 months each on my year abroad. But I may well end up living out there when I'm older, at least for a while

    That's another thing that's been a little off-putting. A lot of the major countries people immigrate to, such as Australia, NZ, US, Canada, etc, are all pretty much new countries and don't really have any quaint villages and such, which I feel could be somewhat of a draw back. I'd image all the buildings being new all the time could get quite tedious.

    I'd like to, although nothing's certain.
    I've always dreamed of living in NZ or Canada, but I think I'd probably go on an extended travelling holiday and see these places before moving there.

    I'd love to live in NYC - have a Friends-Seinfeld lifestyle

    The other side of that is that they have a lot of "quaint" stuff we don't.. I love tacky Americana, like old motels and weird sideshows along the highways and silly stuff like that, and I find some of the architecture more attractive than the old English style- clapboard houses and such, it's not all "new", if you get beyond the big cities.

    God yes, I'm going somewhere where just being English gets me laid.
    Yeah, I've always found that idea appealing myself (although admittedly it would require substituting 'British' for 'English' in my case).

    No, I'm British & this is my home. Obviously, it might be necessary, and I can't predict the future, but I sincerely hope I don't have to leave. I, for one, love this country.
