Growing number of Brits say “peace” to the U.K.

Posted: August 8, 2007 in Uncategorized

(express.co.uk) BRITAIN is facing a mass exodus of people looking to escape the crime and grime of modern living.

The country’s biggest foreign visa consultancy firm has revealed that applications have soared in the last seven months by 80 per cent to almost 4,000 a week. Ten years ago the figure was just 300 a week.

Most people are relocating within the Commonwealth – in Australia, Canada and South Africa. They are almost all young professionals and skilled workers aged 20-40.

And many cite their reason for wanting to quit as immigration to these shores – and the burden it is placing on their communities and local authorities. The dearth of good schools, spiralling house prices, rising crime and tax increases are also driving people away.

[…]

Skilled labour is obviously an advantage, but so is speaking the English language. Most countries are harder to get into if you don’t speak English. UK plc simply isn’t fighting hard enough to keep its people. Some are telling us they are fed up with living in this country. Even business people are saying they’ve had enough.

“They’re saying ‘I can’t put my children into the right school, but if I move abroad I can’. Most people are very patriotic and don’t want to leave. They’re almost terrified about it. But they say they just have to.

“It’s a shame people at the top don’t recognise they’re not doing enough to retain highly skilled workers in this country. A lot of them are quite young, and they’re not idle. They just can’t see a future for themselves in this country. They want to get married and settle down and buy homes, but they can’t see it happening here.

“And time and time again they are saying to us they don’t want to be seen as racist because they are quitting because of immigration. We tell them of course they’re not.”(more…)

If we do not get a handle on ILLEGAL immigration in this country, you will see the same thing here. Ask any Californian.

    You know there are tons of Brits going to live in France, it’s a better life, yada yada, escaping Britain crime etc.

    There are also tons of French going to live in Britain, it’s a better life yada yada.

    So I don’t know.

    I personally like Britain, I’m Spanish and am escaping Spain to go to Britain (hopefully soon, and guess what there are tons of Brits coming to Spain) and think part of the problem is the newspapers and media harping on every single crime, The Sun, Daily Mail and making it more than it is. The immigrants are swarming us!

    And I think it’s the British society in general not just immigration. Everywhere many Brits go, they do cause pandemonium. Doesn’t matter if they are educated or not. This is not all Brits of course.

    But anyway.

    been born and raised in “safe” Greece. I live in the “high crime” country Ireland. I have never noticed any kind of crime against me. On the contrary I hear every day from the Greek news “Crime, love crime, teenage crime, drug dealing crime, murders… my God my head is spinning.

    Safe France? Did you hear the Paris riots pal?

    Nowhere is safe. There are people savage and wild everywhere cause good and bad goes togethere. This is the balance of our world

    That’s pretty funny, but I’d expect nothing less from the Daily Express. The article refers to people coming in as “immigrants” throughout, but twists itself up in knots pretty badly trying to avoid describing people heading to other countries as doing the EXACT same thing – no, they are “relocating”, “quitting”, “escaping”, “applying for foreign visas”. Not emigrating. Not buying up homes and using local services overseas. Not economic migrants. No no no. Quite different. These guys are white.

    It’s like they don’t even understand what they’re saying. “This place is being ruined by immigrants! I’m going to move to another country, which will make me an imm.. I mean, I’ll be a… er… hang on.”
