    Default Has Britain become a depressing dump?

    Seems a lot of people have lost their mojo, or joie de vivre as the cheese eating surrender monkeys would say.

    As Brits we've not only got a country with generally dreary weather, we've got a lot of economic, demographic and social issues, massive overcrowding due to immigraion, HMRC nothingtoseeheres on our backs, Tory scumverment, terrorist threats, Brexit uncertainty, rocketing prices for rabbit hutch housing, eco loons and falling salaries and contractor rates.

    Is it time for everyone to fill in the emigration papers, live a simpler life in the sunshine? Has Britain become an depressing place to live and work?

    Discuss. Or simply post random unrelated tulipe.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable´╗┐.

    And the women?



    If it were not for European (Specifically Eastern) immigration, I would have bought myself a one way ticket to Switzerland

    Given your weight and laziness issues, combined with lecherous overtones, perhaps it's a defence mechanism?

    So lets get this straight we shouldn't take immigrants but we should all clear off to other countries, so If I emigrate to Australia what will I be? Oh ya an immigrant

    Even with it's problems there are a lot worse places than this country

    Does look like we've gone back into 'managed decline' mode again. Brexit will be acid test. Remain is as good as hoisting the white flag.

    Problem is you can't escape yourself.
    When you realise the problem lies within you, you'll have made progress.

    The North is uncrowded, untroubled by terrorism and still quite homogeneous (to the extent you actually notice when you see a black/chinese person outside a city). Plus, house prices are still sensible (ish).

    I'm not sure if the weather is much worse than the south really - it's dry on the east and wet on the west and you get really nice long summer days due to being further north.

    We shouldn't take useless immigrants, only the useful ones. And those of us here are mostly "the useful ones" and are likely to be welcomed by other countries
