and no mention of weather, climate, landscape, fairness, tolerance, legal system, NHS, etc., etc.. eg: the USA, France, and Germany, as major economies would not be my choice for several varying reasons. Then Australia, Switzerland, Austria, and Canada, fail for me on extremes of climate. That leaves Belgium, Luxembourg, and New Zealand. All no doubt have their good points but I don't have personal experience to comment for or against them. The UK still looks pretty good to me.
I believe the Bank of England is already addressing the problem. The real problem, I think is the widening gap between 'rich' and 'poor' countries. This will become a huge problem in years to come. It can, of course, be argued that it also applies within our own population but when compared to poorer countries our 'poor' are not so badly treated. That said, I have no problem with giving more help to those who need it.
Won't mention her again , lol. .....not me making suggestions , I've never lived abroad so i've no comparisons to make but this is taken from the 2014 United Nations survey of the best country to live in from 1 to 10 Here is the statistic report of the best countries.

The UK is my country and having travelled a fair bit have many good experiences of some things better in other countries .. but overall the UK is my place of choice to live... as a total package... That said I am not happy with the allowed greed in the UK. and the increasing population number... but we all have our own gripes
Meanwhile on sky news Tuesday evening on SKY TV NEWS houses prices again mentioned... in the 1970 the average house price were around 3 times the average wage... sky news now reports that the average house price is 10 times the average wage of 26k ... and in London is 14 times the average wage.. up 18% in London in the past year.
I still wonder when it will all end and at what level of resulting hardship the under 30s and others will have to endure .. the sky report also mentioned the continuing growing trend of over crowding in houses with people unable to move to a place of their own or afford to rent.
This subject seems to have more legs than a football team..... without a realistic solution ..and one is certainly needed....
What do all the immigrants, legal and otherwise, see? I know well how you regard MT but some of us have had to bear TB who had a thing about weapons of mass destruction. We are never going to agree but we should be able to put it all behind us. As a matter of interest what countries do you suggest are better to live in than the UK?
