    Out of curiosity, what could someone tell you that you couldn't find online?

    A top site for official info is https://www.gov.uk/

    I live in Scotland, and if your like me and want to live in a place where there are beautiful girls, then the UK isnt for you lol. There are also so much TAX you need to worry about including VAT which basically means if you sell anything (even services) to other people then you need to pay 20% of what you charge to the government, of course there is also income tax, National insurance (another form of tax basically). Dont be surprised if the government takes 50% of all your profits.

    They will be fine, not many people in the UK who speak English anymore, and a lot of English people are so uneducated they can barely speak English. Out of interest what language do you and your friends speak?

    I live in the UK, thankfully I am leaving for good on Monday.

    If you are not white and british it is a bad time to visit the uk as our 2 major Nazi parties are now in power, if you are poor and not white English prepare yourself to be hated.

    Good news though we now have facilities to give food to the starving "food banks", only 1 in 4 people in the UK had to borrow money for food this year which is better than I thought would be the case.

    The Tories are currently busy asset stripping the country which though terrible is like a comedy as you get to see them behave in exactly the way we all know they are, a bunch of absolute cunts. So expect the end of the NHS, Fire stations are already being sold, and for some reason no one knows where all the title deeds to all the schools have gone.

    However, if you have a great deal of money (as in the level where you no longer pay tax) London is the perfect place for you.

    Some reference

    Borrowing Money For Food (I got my figures wrong above)

    So yeah, welcome to Great Britain, come join the misery, I am so out of here.

    It's a shit country.

    David Cameron's next move should be to level the whole country with a nuclear bomb. I think it'd be for the best, we can all start from the beginning again and hope it doesn't end up turning into the same shit country as it is today.

    If you like having half your money took off you to pay for chavs to breed as many feral grunting kids as they can, the UK is the place for you. Personally though, I hate paying for the next generation of muggers, smack heads and benefit lifers.

    Most countries take a huge amount of your earned money through tax, c'est la vie.

    I know about taxes and have used calculator to calculate how much I will earn after taxes. You are talking that living in UK is so awful, for example I live in LIthuania our minimum is 400$. People earn about 400-600$ per month, now calculate, I live with my girlfriend and we need to rent a flat it costs 300$, than we need to eat also about 400$ and the payments for gas, electricity and etc in the winter 300$ , also I have a Car so also +100-200$ on petrol. When I will buy my own home? never... :) So a lot of people from our country now living in UK and they are happy, so what I am asking about. And I am speaking russian, lithuanian and not very good in english. Could anyone of you say something about Peterborough city?

    Why on earth do you want to move to the UK? The only reason you'd want to live here is to take advantage of our excellent welfare system. Get yourself into the UK and we'll pay for you to live and have fun... you don't even have to work! :)

    We have horrible politics and useless councils. No one in any position of authority is capable of helping you unless they can push a particular button on a computer. No button? - No help.

    We have the most useless welfare system which means in a lot of cases its actually better to not work and get given money than it is to contribute. It's an absolute joke. Everyone has a huge entitlement attitude. Welfare is not used to help someone get back on their feet, it's a way of life... and it's not too shabby either based on the tonnes of people I know exploiting the system.

    Taxes are also a problem. We are not a country that rewards entrepreneurship. Not only do we have difficult tax rates for individuals and companies, but there are many other stealth taxes... council tax, national insurance, road tax and VAT.

    But to answer your question... Brighton.

    Brighton (on the south coast) is by far the best place to live in the UK. It's where I'm from, as a very liberal attitude, tonnes of excellent restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment, etc. We also have a huge amount of foreign students come study here to learn English each year, mainly Spanish and German people. It's also the known as UK's silicon valley as we have the largest number of start ups and tech companies here. Talk to anyone in a pub and within a few conversations you'll meet someone who does SEO.

    You can rent a flat share somewhere in the city center for £500 pm (inc bills). A beer is about £4 - £4.50. Night club entry is between £5-£10.

    We have about 3-4 very very nice restaurants and they'll set you back around £80 per person a meal, depending on drinks.

    A pack of 20 cigarettes is around £9.

    Good quality hookers are about £60 a pop.


    Brighton is great if you're stuck living in the UK.. but seriously.. I would not recommend the UK. A few entrepreneurs I know have already moved and the rest of us are in the process of getting our shit together to we can leave this joke of a country!

    You need to get the message pal. Most or all of the people who have posted above me are British. Our country is the biggest sh1t tip in the world. It's hellishly expensive. Property is unaffordable. Crime is rampant. The health service is broken. Society is breaking down all over the place. Noone has got any manners anymore all, it's all me, me, me. Utility bill are through the roof. Noone has any money anymore. Oh, and did you hear about our weather?
    Pease don't come, seriously.

    I lived in london for 3 months 5 years ago. The weather is normal such as in Lithuania. I want to England because want to get the England`s passport and go to Australia or USA. You pay high taxes, but you can at anytime buy ticket for Egipet for example and go for holidays, for example in our country about 90% of people weren`t anywhere because haven`t got the money.
