  1. With what seems the country spiraling out of control, (which it isn't really) and you are contemplating, in the process of migrating, have recent events (riots) confirmed your decision to emigrate. Migration is a very complex issue, many reasons and emotions are involved in the decision, but one that crops up now and again is 'A Better Life', I'm not quite sure what this means, but it means different things to different people I guess. So has the decision to emigrate been validated by these events or are you of the mindset now that this country well and truly needs help. I guess we can all in our own little way make a difference to what happens around us, and maybe that is a thought that has crossed your minds. I don't want this thread to be another on the reasons why these riots took place, but in your mind does the decision to emigrate seem ever more resolute, or do you feel a little like you are 'Jumping A Sinking Ship' Cheers Tony.:wink:

    Riots in UK

    Hi All, Just wondering if anyone who is in the middle of making arrangement to return to the UK, or, are about to return are having second thoughts considering all that is going on at the moment with the riots. For ourselves, we have our concerns, but are not being put off. From my school of thought, a lot of this could have been averted by quicker action from the authorities who govern law and order. What is happening is a lesson to be learnt for the future. Cheers, Dave.
  3. Seems a bit harsh but when you think people lost their lives in last weeks riots i suppose it is sending a tough message.

    Londons burning

  5. Just been reading the editorials and this one is interesting. Guess it says what lots have thought for a long while. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2025034/UK-riots-2011-Thugs-gangs--nasty-little-secret-exposed-last.html
  6. Well i am sick of hearing this as the only reason for all the thuggery and stealing.Of course the parents of these sad young people have had a very real influence on how they behave,but a lot has to do with peer pressure,and role models,to whom they look up to.If a teenager is brought up in a rough area, or a nice area,in a big City in the UK today,then there is only so much their parents can do to lead them in the right direction.There are many thousands of good parents who try their utmost to lead their children in the right direction,but teenagers being teenagers,as we all were,and given the fact that it is really a more decadent society we live in now IMO,then it can be very difficult to direct them on the right path in life.They will rebel,they will seek excitement and they will try often to emulate the most successful of their contemporaries.Unfortunately,for many young people who are from the big cities,this means the drug dealers,and big time Charlies,who drive around in the most expensive cars available,and live on the outskirts of town,in leafy suburbia.The fact that they are worthless scum,often evades impressionable youngsters,but try telling that to a bull headed teenager who knows everything!All i'm saying is it ain't always the Parents fault.:nah:

    London riots

    I wish i was back there getting stuck in!!!!!!!!
  8. Afternoon, Their is a report out today that the UK risks possible future riots if the cost of food continues to rise, does anyone think that is a possibility? I think that unless this government are careful then the silent majority at some point could rise up and say enough is enough. I done the shopping last week as the wife was ill and was shocked at how expensive groceries are, even for the basics such as bread and milk the prices seem outrageous, especially as most people have seen no such rises in their pay packets. What with the price of fuel which in one garage near me is £1.43 for a litre of diesel and the price of energy spiralling i really do not see how most people will survive from day to day. By the way, this is not an excuse for people to start a uk v aus argument again :SLEEP:it is just an observation on England.
