Is the UK really as depressing to natives as people say it is?
Is the UK really as depressing to natives as people say it is?
Well, I guess I got relatively lucky here in Scotland because have only have to deal with Poles and not the other, more diverse flavours of international culture. BTW people who think Polacks are based and redpilled have obviously never met any, they're all loud obnoxious drunks as far as my experience goes. Still, at least I can still walk around outside and get stabbed or acid thrown in my face.
not get stabbed etc
Poles do drink a lot lmao.
funny, i thought being a loud obnoxious drunk was also a british pastime
Not as depressing as Palestine
Only in the cities and even then mostly only at the weekends.
Weekends were a mistake.
funny, i thought being a loud obnoxious drunk was also a british pastime
only 3 more months until the porn ban is in effect
Not at all. I love walking backwards down the streets while making faces and making exaggerated hand gestures in London at odd hours to see if they send someone out when I'm picked up on their surveillance cameras.
white women wont fuck me
Crawling in my skin
this is genocide
you got a loicense for that question?
probably, north in general i would say,
mostly because of the weather.
Sun is very important, at least for me
Enjoying your new wall that the Americucks paid for my good friend?
Edinburgh isn't too bad
I live in London and wish for death every day, had to sit in Clapham near Clapham Common Station (Londoners will understand what this is like) for 50 mins as my mates were running late. It was fucking bizarre, I was on edge every second.
All the whites were crackheads, all the “youths” were blacks with haircuts that looked like Mickey Mouse ears, every family was made up of a single white mum and kids of a variety of colourations from white to half caste.
The most bizarre experience was that for the first half an hour I was sat next to an 80+ year old nigger that was whooping and hollering every time a 4/10 or higher walked past. At one point a Hispanic girl came up and started asking everyone for a pound (as happens a LOT in London, whether the person is homeless or not) and the old nigger literally said “Okay but you’re coming back to mine, yeah?” She kept saying no but he kept pushing, eventually she ran off whilst an elderly woman was conversing with the obvious crackhead about how misogynistic the whole thing was.
I felt like I was not only in another country but a hostile and dirty other planet. Nobody seemed to care about me personally but I feel that if it weren’t so crowded I couldve been mugged or murdered on that filthy street and nobody would’ve batted an eye.
Also on a nearby bridge somebody has spraypainted “WELCOME TO WANKERVILLE” in huge letters.
whatever you are picturing, its worse.
I live in Newcastle and it’s pretty fun up here.
only up norf. south and wales best place in world
haven't there always been shitty parts of london?
Take your country back you fucking faggots.
I have been to Edinburgh multiple times on holiday, it is objectively one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to. But in recent years I have watched it slowly creep towards London demographics, year on year there are a growing number of Pajeets and Hijabis. But I’m not surprised as I’ve also noticed an decrease in the number of emos and a resultant increase in the number of hippies (this liberal faggots). Same thing happened here in London about a decade ago.
I live in Shropshire which is pretty fucking white so it is nice, the towns are clean people are nice
But seriously that porn ban is stupid, I mean now is a good time to sell VPNs.
move to america. you'll have to work 7 days a week 365 days a year.
You know some actor from Trainspotting 2 got shot in Edinburgh a couple days ago?
Yes, emigrating ASAP
WELCOME TO WANKERVILLE
I don't know why but that is hilarious to me.
I don't even have words to explain what is happening. Simply wish some cunt just rammed into my pleb bus and ended it all.
Edinburgh's good, Cornwall's good, Norwich is hanging in the balance, London needs a wall built around it.
Yeah but now EVERYWHERE in London is utter garbage
yea, Bradley Welsh who played Doyle in T2.
Still Edinburgh is a nice place.
it's a living fuckin' hell!
and every day it get's worse.
i pray for either for america or russia to come and conquer/free us from our evil goverment
Same with Birmingramadan.
Yeah I was on that exact street the day before. Crazy.
Shootings are pretty much unheard of here.
you could quite easily have been talking about literally any other city in britain and from my experiences you'd be correct.
Cities are where the trash heaps up. They are god awful places. Even if it was all whites, living on top of each other is just dreadful. All it takes is one cunt to move in nearby and your life becomes a living hell because councils will do absolutely nothing
Much worse than you can imagine, and i say that living in a fairly nice 98% white, clean rural-ish area.
Massive population density, overwhelmed transport network designed to be as slow and expensive as possible, tiny houses that are simultaneously extremely expensive with no land, huge taxes on everything you buy, low salaries, low productivity, everything is illegal (Bliar literally introduced NINE THOUSAND new offences under his reign of terror), and there is nothing to do but go to the pub.
Not too bad if you're not poor and low class and can afford to separate yourself from it.
I had to walk through the 'enriched' part of local town after Mass yesterday and felt like I was in a fucking dystopian sci-fi though.
Moving to rural Scotland soon though, as soon as my kid is born.
Whilst there definitely has it used to be majority lovely and minority shitty but nowadays you can be in one of the few remaining beautiful parts of London but can end up in a shithole by walking down the wrong street. South West London is a paradise comparatively but even then there’s tons of rich pajeets and young middle class white girls out with hood rats to piss off their banker dad
The issues we're currently facing; brexit, immigration, neomarxist infiltration etc. notwithstanding, I think there is something deeply wrong with our society and culture on an interpersonal level.
This place strangles and kills some crucial thing within people, some spark of vibrancy is extinguished and the person inside becomes dormant, surfacing only rarely.
Those who would try to cling onto that spark are driven instead to become completely and utterly unhinged by it all.
Let's pray for happier times once again:
Well everything there is punishable by 10 years hard larbor so I suppose so. Also everyone knew About Saville even higher ups.
Can't go outside without a being-outside loicense.
Can't stay inside without signalling to the police that you have something to hide.
Thinking of moving to Montana or Idaho, any tips for making the switch?
somebody spraypainted someone is a grass on under a bridge near me the other day and I facepalmed as I walked past and saw it because basically whoever spraypainted that is a grass for grassing up someone else for being a grass.
Scotland is a paradise
The people are so good to others and I love them.
Glad God put me here.
I'm not nationalist, I'm internationalist.
I think Scotland is very European and friendly.
I'm Scottish too.
Is it not the most glorious day? Have you been outside?
Morrisons are selling tomatoes at 75p a pop
what's wrong uk?
Why so unhappy?
if you are taking valium I will find you and kill you
I met a bong from Lewisham on gmod 7 years ago. He quickly became one of my best friends and we would play games together almost every single day, we also used to send eachother presents for christmas. However over these past years he's gotten more and more depressing to the point where he barely talks to me anymore. The rare times we do he's so apathetic and careless. He didn't use to drink or smoke but now he's literaly drinking beer all the time and takes smoke breaks while we're playing.
He says he's fine but I don't know, I feel really bad for him
Give me his address
you need to take some self-responsibility
You sound mentally ill
Err what? Where are you? Glasgow is awash with shitskins.
I am very much so. I'm sick at the Satanic mills surrounding us.
Glasgow is awash with the most educated peoples from all corners of earth
I grew up with friends from all cultures and really, race wasn't ever something I considered before going on pol and truth be told, the perceptions and absolutely skewed here,
Tips? Have money.
One of the few 'good' things about England is that property is 'worth' so fucking much. Owning some gives you a lot more flexibility.
Also stating the obvious, but aim for somewhere your skills (I hope you have those user) are easily transferable
they're all loud obnoxious drunks as far as my experience goes
It's nice to hear they blend in
The Polish are very reserved and polite.
You all make Jesus sad.
Why can't you just accept each other?
if someone is an asshole
they are an asshole
they come in all shapes, colours and sizes
In anywhere with a population more than about 60,000, small towns and countryside are still glorious though.
Yes, absolutely. I'm moving away as soon as I can.
Violent crime, theft and delinquency have all risen considerably The police are useless. Once they knocked on my door once because I gave a girl a piece of paper with my number on it. They didn't like it when I told it to their face that it was a waste of everyone's time.
Wages have effectively declined since 2008. Life expectancy has also been in decline recently. The poorest parts of the UK are practically second-world.
Why yes it is dear chap.
Other way round mate. Birmingham and London are depressing af.
fuck off niggerlover
You don't know how bad it really is
Fucking this. Abhorrent posts.
property is 'worth' so fucking much
Hardly a plus unless you bought a shitload of houses in the 90's. I dearly love to change from my godawful boring career but doing so in England always involves massive salary drops and i have a sizeable mortgage due to not wanting to live next door to pajeets.
And yet Scots still shill for shitskins.
Who gives a shit? It can't be more depressing than the US, especially Clown City, TX. I go in to work everyday surrounded by niggers and spics. The White people are all dressed like Victorian era peasant LARPer (pants rolled up above ankles, nice "ratty" clothes), every other couple is interracial, mixed race subhumans populate middle mgmt. everywhere. I'm literally staring ZOG's endgame in the face everyday I'm forced to leave my apartment to make money. Fuck the UK.
everything is illegal
we're really an authoritarian socialists so no freedom of speech, right to bear arms etc and while everything is illegal it's mainly to police peoples speech and thoughts.
If you submit then there's no chance you will be arrested even though everyone even accidently will break laws concerning hate speech on a regular basis. If you push the issue or point out the existance of it or are open about breaking it you not only put yourself at risk but others will feel the need to report you to protect themselves from punishment.
What's spooky is visitors often don't understand the balancing act we all have to manage in policing our own thoughts and speech, while for a visitor there isn't any great risk of the laws being enforced they have no understanding that dropping a piece of bread in a public place could get you £100 fine or telling an off colour joke a suspended sentence and heavy fine.
It's all very subtle and not talked about but reminds me of Arab nations where you are free in some sense but being aware of the risks you are taking and laws in place is near impossible unless you live there for a long time.
this video explains it better, the way the police and the citizen talk to each other neither can risk putting a foot wrong in their speech.
It's all very subtle
"The English are inveterate gamblers, drink as much beer as their wages will permit, are devoted to bawdy jokes, and use probably the foulest language in the world. They have to satisfy these tastes in the face of astonishing, hypocritical laws which are designed to interfere with everybody but in practice allow everything to happen."
George Orwell, 1940.
I guess thing never do change.
I just moved away from England. I watched my quaint, quiet, ethnically homogenous countryside village on the outskirts of London turn from a postcard picture into a third world dumping ground within the space of 20 years. I grew up walking to the local primary school across a common area with trees and nice scenery (kinda like pic related). The only non-white in my class was an attractive Indian girl from a wealthy family who was fully assimilated. We’d sing hymns in the adjoining church and carry Christingle candles at Christmas. It was a very wholesome experience.
After leaving primary school and attending a private secondary school from my teens into my twenties, I’ve watched London and my village turn into a third world dystopia. I’d say a quarter to a half of the primary school is now non-white. I look at pictures of the school nowadays and I’m left feeling incredibly depressed. The atmosphere of the school has completely changed. Modern technology, mass immigration, and the hollowing out of our culture all seemed to coalesce around 2008. Something is missing. Or should I say, something new is taking over. That school was a tiny microcosm of a culture that’s lasted hundreds of years. In a few short years, it’s been transformed into something completely different. The kids look different. The energy isn’t the same. The soul just isn’t there anymore.
I wanted to save my community but I realised it was completely futile. The colonisation by foreigners will continue unabated. Everything I loved growing up will be lost forever.
why did you move to America though, and not a different literally who country in the eu or something
they're all loud obnoxious drunks as far as my experience goes. Still, at least I can still walk around outside and get stabbed or acid thrown in my face.
holy shit, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Literally everyone, except some Brits, agrees that Brits are the worst public drunks of all nationalities.
Europe will be a fiery cauldron of death when war breaks out. I’m betting on war being waged against China in the next 10-20 years. The United States is a huge country which, despite the globalists best efforts, still contains a lot of safe locations. Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, etc. I’d say these are the safest places to raise a family and avoid the nuclear fallout. I’m currently in Utah.
It's pretty bad, but honestly its overstated here as a result of people being overly harsh about the UK, and most bong posters being the heavily redpilled people who suffer most from the lack of freedoms. As said, there's actually subtle balancing acts going on, but if you play it right then honestly you have very little chance of being arrested. I break the "hate speech" laws regularly on Jow Forums, and I post here with no VPN. I have little expectation I'll ever get hassled from the police about it. Even if I were to, it'd likely consist of a visit by a police officer who'd try to guilt trip me, and then leave.
We do definitely have a problem with both non-whites and muslims, but Jow Forums really overestimates the latter especially. The uk has about 5% muslims. This is the same as germany and greece. Meanwhile, places such as austria slip under the radar despite having 8% muslims.
I won't pretend our police deserve anything more than a rope and instructions on how to tie a noose, but the NHS is substantially better than retards (especially americans) think. I'd unironically much much rather live here than the us from a health perspective. If we want private healthcare us style we can just buy private healthcare insurance - it's still massively cheaper than the us's, and very similar quality. Even then though, even among people who actually do have private healthcare, many of them still just use the nhs, especially for things below the level of surgery. It really isn't as bad as fox news tells you.
Locations can change a lot about how pleasant it is to live somewhere, but with the exception of some parts of london no big UK city has demographics even comparable to more or less any big us city. For all knife/acid attacks are memed, violence rates here are low, as with europe.
I'd consider some places in europe, but I don't understand redpilled people who move to america. Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
Every brit makes it sound like they did the convicts a favor
ye thats basically it in UK from my experience with Poles as a Polack person. Mostly loudness and obnoxiousness is caused bcs of some Slavic-Polish proud of being a scumbag.
It's not that bad statistically
Yes, but there are subtle ways of making things awful that the government here has mastered. Really ethinic minorities are just here to rub it into our face; they undercut the wages of local poor folk, meanwhile it is a crime not to be accepting of them. On top of that, you have an economy that specializes in tea and cakes, so there is little upward mobility.
Really Britian is a rainy, depressing Italy economically speaking, only Italians have the cogliones to use the black market, whereas here people just suffer it.
Lain is 10/10 anime
an economy that specializes in tea and cakes
Don't sell us short m80, we have top deano professions such as estate agents and recruitment consultants (who recruit recruitment consultants), there's nowt quite like an 85% service economy.
The police only go after people they think wont fight back, which is why they dont go after muzzies or investigate home burglarys, same with drug dealers they wont bother you because they are scared you will fight back.
Its the reason they only go after people for saying mean words on the internet, because they know those people wont resist
Thing is, in Europe the government could come round with vans and guns at any point and we'd be screwed. We all need to meet up in Greenland and sort this out over a spot of tea.
Yes and no. I don't disagree on the minorities part, but I think you're a little off on the economy. We do indeed have a shredded manufaturing base (as with most every western country), but we're the 6th(?) largest economy in the world. You underestimate what britain produces, and the ability for upward mobility.
To be honest, you sound like you drink the american propaganda kool-aid a little too deeply. By most metrics (ie en.wikipedia.org
I'm also quite familiar with Italy (speak the language, visited a couple of times), and trust me we're in a better economic position than italy. Their south vs our north is a shit vs shit duel, but honestly we have a more stable economic core, and less odds of a brutal recession.
yeah but we're exactly as rainy as korea, and no-one bitches its endlessly rainy over there.....
You forgot the thriving industry in producing forms in triplicate. I'm in Scotland right now, and basically half of everyone is in the public sector. Basically a nation of welfare recipients. It's hilarious that Scotland thinks it has a real shot at independence. The place would go full Ukraine in 2 weeks after a successful referendum.
Honestly this is true in most countries.
Don't underestimate how easily mass protests would go beyond the governments ability to handle them. Do you see the yellow vests using guns reguarly? French government is still rightfully terrified of them. Mass civil unrest with or without arms beats the government, more or less every time. The police would happily carry out such orders, which sucks, but I suspect our rank and file army would have little stomach for them, and if it got bad would probably open fire on the police.
It all depends who you're talking about. Yes things are going really great if you happen to work in and around the square mile. Do we have the 6th largest economy? Nope, I don't buy it. Really it's like post 80's Japan 2.0.
Really there's the city, which is doing great because it pushes asset prices higher and higher, and maybe one random high-tech firm but as for the rest of us, there is no economy; no factories, none of the bread and butter of a real economy.
are drugs a problem in the UK? it seems like a quarter of my town is on meth and it seems to be like that across the US
if they are a problem, won't addicts flood up the NHS?
You cant get things like MDMA, coke, and weed on the NHS
I dont know anyone into opiates tho
I don't disagree our economy is heavily biased towards the city. However, it doesn't change the basic facts of the situation - our social mobility is genuinely higher than the ever vaunted us social mobility. Our local economies are legitimately in a rough place, but as I said this is true of most everywhere in the west. Given such a position, I'd honestly rather have a service economy built around a strong core than a service economy composed of multiple weaker components. We really do have a much stronger core than you realise. Don't underestimate the value of uk based management consultancies especially. Or for that matter HSBC (which is 50% based outside of london). the big 4 mostly operate outside of london too. I don't disagree our economy is rough for people without education, knowledge or training, but there are still good options out there if people want to take them. Starting your own business isn't super hard to do. You can still learn a trade here (even if they have fucked up the apprenticeship schemes). There's still local economy components that exist - basic shops and supermarkets etc. And while they might not pay stunningly well, you do get decent worker protections. No need to panic because your shitty job won't give you health insurance, or won't give you paid leave.
I do agree with the post 80's japan comparison, but honestly that's not a terrible position to be in. Unideal, but not terrible. If you're truly desperate to live in a up and coming highly libertarian economy, go move to nigeria or kenya - not even being sarcastic. You'd do stunningly well there, even if you were average as fuck by UK standards. Lots of upwards mobility, you could live like a king in terms of house space, servants etc. There are more options out there than you think, inside or outside the uk
the NHS won't give you drugs, outside of methadone. They don't even like prescribing opiates. Meth literally isn't a thing here (never heard of anyone taking it). Cocaine and weed are very common, MDMA as well. Addicts could theoretically be an issue, but honestly the NHS has bigger problems, like pensioners and shitskins. The biggest "addict" issues for them would be smokers and drinkers
New Jacobite rising when
No words can adequately describe the feeling of hopelessness here.
Alcohol and cocaine are big problems here. People do way too much mdma and other party drugs but only the homeless and real dregs abuse opiates and meth is confined to gay orgies thankfully.
