LONDON - UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Monday that he will resign by September.
Almost three-quarters of Britons have considered emigrating this year, with Australia as the most popular destination, according to a new survey. The survey carried out by foreign exchange broker Currency UK found that 31 percent of respondents cited the poor state of the British economy as the reason for wanting to leave, while 23 percent blamed the lack of job prospects and 19 percent said they are worried about the outcome of last week's election.
"Our survey highlights that many Brits are concerned by the prospect of a hung Parliament and that the next four years will be dominated by huge tax rises, cuts in public service and inflation," Currency UK senior account manager Adrian Jacob said.
The numbers have dramatically risen compared to Currency UK's last survey on emigration in 2005, when only 25 percent of respondents said they had considered leaving Britain. About one in 10 of the 1,029 people surveyed said that a change in the pace of life was the main reason they wanted to emigrate.

Why would you prefer lib dem and labour instead of conservative? it amazes me how much labour have contributed to the destruction of britain since they've been in power yet people still side with them. Don't get me wrong I'm no tory by any means but anythings got to be better than those corrupt lying scumbags. And what also annoys me is the majority of the people voted for conservative, but the way things are going it's looking like labour will be in power, and we call this a democracy!

I don't want to be ruled by a bunch of public school toffs, cos thats what they are a bunch of rich toffs. They don't represent me in any way.
