A new survey shows that two-thirds of British people are reasonably happy with their lives, at the same time an astonishing number of people would rather live in another country.

Thirty per cent would emigrate if they were free and had the chance to settle somewhere else in the world. In more adventurous about 20 age group more than 50 per cent would like to emigrate. The majority say they would prefer to go somewhere warmer than Britain. Among younger people the most popular destination would be continental Europe, particularly Spain and France. Outside Europe, other destinations would be Australia, the USA and Canada.

Most British people over 40 would rather stay where they are. In the older group nobody showed any interest in leaving the country. However, this age group also thinks that foreign holidays are ‘essential’. Most of them said that three weeks in another country was ‘as much as I can take’. The majority of British people want to spend their holidays in the sun…and on a beach where they can sunbathe, swim and play beach games. The minority prefer to stay in Britain for their holidays – although the weather is not always reliable. They would rather not have to bother with foreign currencies, frights, passports and different food. Britain has a long coastline so there are lots of places to go for seaside holidays and some people save money by doing self – catering, renting a holiday home or camping.
