Erm... Not sure who you're sticking up for in this argument...

It is amazing how nobody ever wants to hear that their dreams may not be connected to to reality.

I like to think that I would never be the one to deprive people of their dreams... but also I will not be the one at the Bur Dubai hilton trying to bail them out when they are in debt up their eyeballs because they have one ear and three mouths, rather than the usual arrangement...

Many people here make a great living...
Some do ok (that's my bracket)
MANY have to leave... due to "unforseen" (despite forewarnings) events...
Others... are trapped here... or imprisoned, for things that would be quite normal in most of, the rest of the world...
I just thought it was a bit harsh for rascal to say "Best stay in the UK and claim the benefits"!!! and the Somalia thing - Im guessing Rascal hasnt come to the UK for the weather!!!

I'm guessing one of the reasons Rascal left the UK probably was due to the weather. I'm pretty sure he's never even set a foot in Somalia! He likes to play "nationality bingo"...

I know, we can't help being avid globetrotters and "Wherever we lay our hat, that's our home", to paraphrase a Paul Young song - showing my age there.

Hi

Relocating did not go well for me, I left London for dubai with a lot of expectations and now I am going back to London. I suggest you come and find out things for yourself if you have some spare time before making any big move. I hope it goes well for you. Best of luck xx
