The findings from a pensions industry study add to growing evidence that the flood of Britons leaving the country is now greater than at any time since the 1970s.
They suggest both that a huge number of people are anxious to find warmer, more exiting and less heavily taxed places to live in retirement, and that many of them have the means to do so.
Britain = fucked

I, for one, now I am a free man again, intend to shift it offshore a soon as it is practicable.

Why do you prefer Spain, nevo? Are the taxes there low?

You’re welcome at my place in the Pacific Northwest USA. Except it’s in the Blue Zone so it’s not much different than what you left. When I can afford it I’m moving to Red Zone USA.
I’d rather like to abandon the US but I’m a gun nut and can’t give up the iron.
You can shoot all you want when you get here.

I’ve been reading this post for a while but rarely contribute.
I’m a qualified IT professional (exactly the type of person the government is saying we need more of) and come November I’ll be leaving these shores, most likely for good.
I have no illusions that Australia, where I am heading, is much better off than we are with respect to feminist corruption of society. However, if you’re going to feel like a foreigner in your own country you might as well feel like a foreigner somewhere foreign (and warm).

I am glad that men are figuring it out and are looking for better options. I am also in hopes that this will cause some uproar as countries lose their tax base and look at why men are abandoning ship. There are only a couple of things that concern me. One is that the Govt. will crack down and make it harder to expat. Second is that if baby boomers start moving overseas en mass, there may be no more untamed, non-westernized areas by the time I get to retirement in 35 years. Hopefully there will always be a place to escape to and a means to do it without too much government interference.

It’s not surprising that so many people are fleeing Britain. Since Blair and his Feminist cronies came to power all they’ve done is reward non-workers, criminals and single-mothers. By doing this these people are breeding like rabbits because of the extra benefits they get. In contrast, men who work hard are taxed to hell, separated from their kids and generally get shafted at every opportunity. The result is that our nation is a haven for lazy shirkers and criminals and a nightmare for hard workers.

I prefer Italy, my country of origin. But life is tough over there generally. High taxes, expensive housing, difficult to get employment, crammed citys, etc.
Spain is much easier in all those aspects. The problem with Spain is that in the family, men are the head of the family but is the women who usually has the last word.
In other words, man rules but on the last word of his wife.
Also helps that I speak Spanish as well as I speak English. I might get a certificate to teach English. Hence, solving the employment problem.

I’ve always liked the idea of moving to Italy. I’ve never been there, so I probably have a bit of a romanticised view of the place, and I have heard it is very expensive, particularly in the North. Nonetheless I’ve always wanted to get over there, at least for a holiday to case the place out.
I think the whole of Europe is too highly taxed these days though.

Italy is a highly regionalised country. Every region has it’s own peculiar things.
Some places in the north of Italy, a house/flat can be as expensive as central London. The cost of living quite pricey. Just go to a supermarket in here and look at the prices of Italian foods stuff.
But make no mistake, it is a beautiful place, not least because of it’s history.

Hate to burst your bubble, guys, but the US isn’t really a viable option anymore for you Brits who want to stay someplace where they speak English (or some version thereof). The faminazis are busily running this place into the ground, and the real men, the ones who have figured out what’s going on, are hunkering down to endure until the apocalypse cleans all of these feminists and maginas out.

I hear in Italy that sexual harassment is a criminal matter so that doesn’t look good.
