I wholeheartedly agree. I moved, like others away from the UK around 5 years ago after my wife died. Set up in Ireland with my 3 young kids.
Don't regret anything, and Ireland is in a pretty bad shape too, if not worse. People here are used to having feck all in the days before the Tiger,
and seem to adjust better. Sure we are all broke but there's always a song to be had or a get together. People grow more here, they barter more and
identify ways to get a tiny advantage and turn a crappy situation into a slightly better one. Place is still so far up the EU's arse, but we get on
I'm afraid with the time of year it is, personal debt is just going to rise as people buy crap they don't need with money they don't have to
impress people they don't like.
You're right, Roger Waters had a knack of telling it how it is:
"Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air"
"You better stay home
And do as you're told
Get out of the road if you want to grow old"
