Bark: Britain is shit - Official
Britain, according to a survey into quality of life by The Economist, is the worst place to live in the EU. I don't find this terribly surprising myself, but it was reassuring to see that the place I intend to be my refuge from all the bad politics, social breakdown and lack of security (Norway) is third on the list. And yet (predominantly English) people still try to dissuade me from wanting to move over there... Now, there's nothing wrong with a bit of patriotism, but not to the point of blind devotion. Look, your rugby team is rubbish and you're not going to win The Ashes. Seriously. England's not that green or pleasant anymore, no matter what that hymn says.
