Everyone wants to live in a small pretty town, that’s why all the small pretty towns are now being surrounded by overpriced poor quality new build housing.

Here in Harrogate we have literally 1000’s of new builds and the roads are permanently gridlocked.

Anyone who's moving from the city to a rural areas needs to understand that the countryside is a working environment. Our village has been taken over by people who think the countryside is some idyll, and when they find out it is isn't just complain and try to change it. We actually had someone ask us at harvest time to stop the combine as it was gone 10pm.

Sorry if this is off topic but did anyone notice in the Briefing the other day when Van Tam said*without prejudice* before he started on his talk?(Meaning it couldn't be used against him in court). Removed

Yes, but the replacement or augmentation by Chinese and Japanese had already started well before Brexit. Let's see if that continues after Brexit. If not we will all have to expect even higher tax rises to replace that national income. Some may not like immigrants but some of those bring significant wealth into the country.
Very few Bulgarian's fresh of the coach with no English skills and looking to live in a bed-in-a-shed and work for cash cleaning cars is going to be a net contributor to the UK's coffers. ONS data is clear that the A10 countries migrants are on average low-skilled and low-paid, yet get all the bennies and free services of living in the UK. Removed

Speak for yourself. My employer has already confirmed I only need to be back in the office once or twice per week after the pandemic & I don't mind a longer commute if its only a few times a week.

They have already ditched a number of offices & would not be able to get everyone into the ones left if they did want us all in all the time.
Next they'll be employing Sanjay to do the job from even further away...... Removed

I've literally just got money together for a deposit here in Cornwall where I've loved my whole life and now I can't get near anything because it's all selling well over the asking price and I'm on a REALLY tight budget

Always remember - if you live in Cornwall and you were not born here and do not have a Cornish accent:

WE *HATE* YOU.

Not dislike. HATE. If we could kill you all without being detected or caught by the authorities, we would consider this to be the greatest achievement in human history.

I'm trying to buy my first home but the governments crazy idea of a stamp duty holiday (that no one asked for) has pushed prices up so much in the last year. I now can't afford the most basic of properties. This 'holiday' has only helped people who least need the help, like 2nd home buyers. If anything they should be the people who are taxed more!

How are all these people going to cope when they find out none of there neighbours read the Guardian Newspaper and voted to leave the EU ?
Oh we still buy the Guardian, talk to everyone we meet (like we used to), argue with tossers (they exist everywhere) and I sympathise with my crew mates who voted brexit and now have their caught fish stuck rotting in lorries at Dover because coming out of a market reintroduced bureaucracy. Boris once a hero, is now local called a Kipper (two faced)...the irony is lost though! Removed

lots of more affordable houses available in a few years time in the rural areas then when those from the cities can't stand the peace and slow life in the countryside as well as the fact things are not on their doorsteps and there is no public transport move back to the cities.
And as for things getting done they better learn about the word drecly
Newsflash - “drecly” is not a word Removed

In rural Lincolnshire where I live, in the small village where we live several Southerners have come and gone over the last few years.

They added nothing to village life, drove their Chelsea tractors at stupid speed, complained about the tractors driving like tractors, made few friends and were not missed when they left.
Sorry you had the misfortune of having the tosser Londoners! I hear you though. Removed

It's hardly the Londoners fault - it was driven by importing foreigners into London that is pushing Londoners out - mostly down to FOM.
Nazis had this slogan engraved on their belt "God with us". Your nickname seem to be inspired by it. Your cape must be covering obscuring you the meaning of "good" and "hope". Removed

By your definition, only individuals with above average levels of money are worthy of living in the country.
I'm hoping that your post is a joke. The alternative is that you're a self opinionated, pretentious snob.
The fact that numerous people own property in both the town and the country, ensures that your position is not unique.
As a final criticism, your grammar is appalling.

“We don’t want people migrating to our part of the country in search of a better life, and taking housing from indigenous people.” “They won’t understand our culture , or want to join in.” “They will want to stick to their own culture.” “They’re different to us, why don't they go back to where they came from.” Britain First would be proud.

you clearly are from that group as its not about not wanting people into the countryside but them realising its not their god given right to expect to change that countryside from a real working countryside but to what they deem what it should be for them
Anti-vaccination, pandemic denying Brexit mob riot in London and the cops say 'naughty, naughty..' Young women hold a vigil for a young woman raped and murdered by a cop and they wade in with coshes. Last week a cop is eventually suspended for 'assaulting women', after being protected by colleagues. Tory MP currently under investigation for rape, the Tories make the victim work with him.

Another tedious left wing conspiracy theory.
Yeah and right wing is fantastic? That's right, it's not. Why do you fascists keep muttering and moaning about left wing? When was the last left wing govt? As if right wing is great...it's not. In fact, neither are. Do grow up please and move on... Removed
