The UK officially The Worst Place Live In Europe? by Vacora(m): 12:45pm On Sep 29, 2011
The UK is now officially the worst place to live in Europe, with people getting a "raw deal" on quality of life and high cost of living, a new study has revealed.

Comparison website uSwitch said that things were getting so bad that one in 10 people in this country were considering emigrating.

France and Spain came out on top of uSwitch's Quality of Life Index, with the UK bottom of a 10-country league table.

The index covers working hours, VAT, holidays, spending on health and education - and hours of sunshine.


The UK also came bottom of another table based on the cost of energy, petrol, food, alcohol, cigarettes and life expectancy.

Food and diesel prices are the highest in Europe, while unleaded petrol, alcohol and cigarettes all cost more than the European average, said the report.

People in the UK now have the lowest holiday entitlement in Europe as well as having one of the highest retirement ages, the study found.

A survey of over 2,000 adults found their biggest concern was "broken society", as well as the cost of living, crime and violence.


Some 5% said they were happy with the UK, with over one in 10 "seriously considering" emigrating.

France topped the index for the third year in a row, despite the average household annual net income being £7,000 below that of the UK.

Ann Robinson, director of consumer policy at uSwitch.com, said: "Last year at least our neighbours in Ireland were worse off, now we can't even console ourselves with that.

"We are now officially at the bottom of the pile.

Totally disagree. I'm Yoruba and most Nigerians in the U.K are Yoruba.It makes me feel good to have my people around me when I'm not in Nigeria. I enjoy London. The weather can be horrible at times but knowing there are so many of us out here I never really fell alone. I can't speak for everybody but London is definitely the place I will live when I'm away from home. I was out in the states for a bit but I was disheartened by the amount of igbo akata out there. I didn't really feel they were Nigerian so I don't enjoy my time around them. U.k is the place to be for Nigerians in my opinion.#
London is quite expensive but did you really expect any different? Common jo, stop complaining and work for what you want and need.

Free Healtcare says it all. I think people need to stop being ungreatful and be thankful for where they are at. There are people back home that are much worse off.

Safer? Yes but no brotherhood in UK. You will fend for yourself while your parents will fend for themselves too. Its all man for himself over there and 90% of Nigerians there don't have time for leisure or xtra-curricular activities. People hardly go out to watch movies or have fun, they are all after money money money and at the end the pounds doesn't leave the shores of England grin grin grin

Really Did you really say that If everyone was to think like you (and I am sure there are tons of people who still think like you which is probably why Nigeria is the way it is), then I wonder, Please learn to step out of the little box and shell you have enslaved yourself in, There is so much more to life than your petty tribalism, If you do not learn how to interact and associate with people from other cultures and regions then you will always remain myopic,

This is the opinion of Europeans, not Nigerians who emigrated to Europe.
Any Nigerian who has lived in Nigeria would never say this.
Anyways, I think after Germany, the UK is the most liberal place in Europe, with opportunities for all and sundry.
Most of the Western European nations are quasi-socialist.
