Hollow Britain?

Why are record numbers of people leaving the UK?

Is it the threat of terrorism?

Is it the record number of immigrants?

Is it the quality of NHS care?

Is it the crime rate?

Is it the traffic congestion?

Is it the quality of schools?

Or the tax increases to pay for all of them!?!

"Labour's largesse on its priorities - health, education and overseas aid - has seen spending rise from 35% of gross domestic product to 42%."

More to the point, why are so many of us staying put?

Family and friends!

Are they migrating because there are too many immigrants? Yes, great, they shouldn't bump into any foreigners over there then.

Do you do irony?

Could be because its full.

I note that Bob is endorsing nationalising food production. Hmm. That worked well in Ethiopia (1975) and Zimbabwe (1990s).
