These are the sought of things going through myI think most of us are aware nowhere is perfect. ALso that "holiday" places are different to living there.
The reason I'm not happy in the UK at the moment is really simple. We are regressing as a nation. There are too many people who want to turn back the clock and take us to a less enlightened time. Brexit has emboldened bigots and also nationalists who dream of stovepipe hats, queen Vic and conquering the fuzzy wuzzies. There are always people like that in every country but in ours they have a voice and, more terrifyingly, some power. The regression to imperial is the final straw for me.
I just don't want to live in a country that is working so hard to isolate itself from it's neighbours. A country that is actively damaging it's children's futures. A country that want to go back in time, not look forward, but to regress in a misguided and illogical belief it can rebuild an empirical and powerful past.
Yes all countries have problems but I can't think of another country in the developed world where life is getting gradually but clearly worse for it's citizens. At least not one were such a large number of people support the regression to a tiny isolated and backwards nation.
Mind. I have 2 young daughters, what will this country be like in 10/20 years time
