The Great British Exodus


Recommended Posts

Two million British citizens have left the UK in a decade, the greatest exodus from this country in almost a century, new figures will show.

 

According to figures compiled by Jay Winter, of Yale University, the last comparable exodus came between 1911 and 1914, when 2.4 million people left Britain. The other significant spike in emigration came in the late 1950s and early 1960s, when thousands of Britons left to start new lives in Australia, Canada and the United States.

 

Opposition parties say that some emigrants have been driven out of Britain by its high levels of crime and taxation.

 

?This explosion in emigration is inevitably a reflection of the state of the country under a Labour government,? said David Davis, the shadow home secretary.

Suspect the problem is global and has more to do with the lack of a moral compass in societies, than the fickle and incompetant actions of Governments. :roll: The malaise is largely cultural, currently being pandered to by PC politicians who can't see beyond their liberal dogmas or the next election. :roll::wink:
