More from the place Great Britain used to be.

Kim du Toit's post makes one wonder "What happens to the sinking ship and its passengers when the rats stay but the crew leaves?"
Britain is facing a mass exodus of people looking to escape the crime and grime of modern living. The country’s biggest foreign visa consultancy firm has revealed that applications have soared in the last seven months by 80 per cent to almost 4,000 a week. Ten years ago the figure was just 300 a week.
Pretty soon the wagon will still be full, but those pulling it will have left. Whatever the outcome, it won't be a pretty one.

(As a bonus, if you go look in the comments to the linked article, you'll find Genuine Christian Identity looniness!)

Anyone who use to have a firearm, send 'em right here.

If self-defense is a civil right, if keeping and bearing is inalienable, then the least we could do would be to grant political asylum.

And hey, they already speak the same language (almost).

Besides, there's nothing wrong with streamlining the immigration of people who are likely to vote for your party. Clinton did it too.

Oh wait, I forgot, the current crop of republicans aren't pro-RKBA. They just tell you how bad it would be if the (D) people were in charge and the spend like drunken sailors and order up some warrentless wiretapping.

Never mind.

I like the way there's a commenter whinging about how there's no freedom in the US, how torure's an accepted practise, blahdiblahdiblah. Ten'll get you twenty he lives in Cumbria.

I know I've been draggin' my feet a bit on relocating, but it's kinda hard to turn down the two-for-one offer on the dollar at the moment.

If Heinlein was right - and I have no reason to doubt it - Britain is doomed. Individuals may save themselves, if they're fast enough. At some point, of course, Britain will have to curtail departures.
Culture suicide. Isn't pretty to watch, but may be instructive...
