It really is a dystopia. Brexit was the final straw for me. I knew that a lot of people in our country were racist and little-Englanders/Britainers, but that they would actively vote to make the country worse was sickening. These are the same people who love the Tory and Royal parasites as well, the mind absolutely fucking boggles. I will NEVER understand some people's mindsets.You would be a fool to come here. All the rankings in quality of life index are steadily slipping into a downward trend. I feel like we are rolling back to a dickens novel. As a disabled person I have never been more afraid. The NHS is nearly undone so I have all the future joys of American insurance model to look forward to. You are on a mental health forum. Mental health provision here is garbage, so much so it is less painful for me to pretend it does not exist and get on with it mostly on my own.
Anecdotally racism is growing alongside the constant appeals to nationalism. You will look foreign and plenty will mistreat you because of it. Wasn't that long ago foreigners were compared to rats. They have become our scapegoats. Should you end up out of a job you get the joys of U.K social security to contend with, which I swear was made by some one who studied psychological torture and how to wield shame. If you want to retire comfortably too bad, they have form for raiding peoples pensions and moving back the retirement age. If its your notion to come here work hard and move up the ladder, our social mobility statistics have been stagnant since 2014. Ultimately I tell all my able bodied and capable friends to emigrate the hell out of here. Even if it means losing them as friends.
Yes, it's that bad sadly. I don't know why I recommended you coming here originally, maybe because I am in Scotland which isn't quite as bad as England.
Maybe coming to Scotland for education might work. Or Ireland. Maybe Wales or Canada. Are these countries better for expats needing a scholarship?Yes, it's that bad sadly. I don't know why I recommended you coming here originally, maybe because I am in Scotland which isn't quite as bad as England.
