I have to ask this question....

 

A friend of mine recently visited the UK.

Before he said anything i thought whats he gonna tell me?

Let me guess....

 

Weather terrible

Crime out of control

No one has a job

Everyone is miserable

Country is backward

Too many ethnics

Country on the verge of collapsing

Worst place in Europe to live.

No prospects for anyone.

 

My question is this. If the Uk is so dire. Why arent they asking for a bail out like Italy,Greece,Portugal and possibly Spain??

Maybe the question should be: How long will it be before the UK has to ask for a bail out?

One thing i'll say is that the job situation really is bad, well up here anyway. and of course it depends on what your occupation is. weathers not that bad for this time of the year, not sure about crime. wouldnt agree with any of the other things.

I have moved this thread to CTF, it is more suited as a topic for that forum.

 

Thanks :biggrin:

We haven't had to ask for a bailout, as the government made the budget cuts everyone's been protesting about - without those, we'd be just as buggered as Italy....

Because it is outside the Euro and has an independent central bank which is willing to act as a lender of last resort to the government. If the UK (which is the world's 6th richest economy) has to ask for a bail out like those countries then the world is really stuffied.
