Lucky fella! I was actually thinking of doing the same myself and getting outta this damned country once and for all. What made you move Rtingo, if you don't mind me asking? Was it an easy enough process? It's all really daunting, and I have no clue as to how or where to get the info I need.<br><br>Yeah I agree that the Tories are not afraid of going against the "political correctness" theme of late which seems to have gone a bit mad over here...but by the same token, they are in the main, little bigots as well. <br><br>Lib Dems do seem a little stronger this year, I think it might be worth giving them a chance.<br><br>Alternatively, even if I do decide to go with the Green Party, and I understand that they don't have enough support to be able to make it really mainstream, at least my vote aint wasted on something I don't really believe in...? I dunno have to sit down and have a goooood thinky!  ;D

Then, about this time last year I just thought I HAVE TO DO IT!<br>I was fed up with the crime in England, the council tax, the lack of resect for law abiding citizens and shocking respect for criminals. I just could not take it anymore.<br>I was lucky to own my house which as you know house prices have gone made the last few years so I got out just at the right time.<br>I don't know your situation asparagus but I think you said before you have a little one. If I were in that situation I'd do my best to get my kids out of that environment. <br><br>Having said that, I lived on the south coast but there are still some sane places in England.<br>It all depends where you want to go.

Cheers chief, Im really thinking seriously about it, I want better for my wee baby snake, and I'm not gonna get it in this country. I'm sick of working at the same job and never being any better off, then trying to better myself and do a job that pays more, and the blockers a re put on you at every angle. Apparently over there my training would be paid for! Fucking shocking it is! Ive been a tax payer for 14 years too!! Plus my parents have paid a shit load into the system and none of us benefit from it whatsoever! Just get screwed at every avenue!<br><br>Thanks Ringo, I shall take you up on your kind offer and PM you later when I gots more time.  ;D

I just watched "Question Time" (a political discussion show on TV in the UK) and Im 100% now that I will not be voting either Labour nor Conservative (not that I ever have voted Tory). <br>Reckon its deffo a contest between Lib Dem and Green Party.  ;D<br><br>Yep someone thought I was Canadian...strange...Scouse accents sound nothing like Canadian...hehe. Apparently us scousers talk fast so I've been told, and that is what causes the problem.<br>

Keep him "underground", out of the limelight. Stay in the studieo, open some vault f**king doors,  blow the dust off some masters, and give us fans some ROXY and a ton of other shit he's got lying around, so the heck w/ wasting time being president !!! The one thing (IMO) I'v notised that all/most President's are uhh plastic , and Zappa was the total opposite of being plastic, soo I dont see how that would have worked, but would love to hear the conversations between him and his advisors for the white house if he WAS the pres. LMAO...priceless ;D  <br>     Plus not to mention that I get sick of listning or reading people saying bad shit about him just as it was being a musician. Couldnt imagine the crap he'd get if he was President.<br><br>
