Revealed: The 20 best places in the world to live (and guess which country trails in 21st place?)
Errr- I don't know. Kazakhstan? Chad? El Salvador?
The UK has been ranked the 21st best place in the world to live – flagging behind Ireland and Iceland.
Silly me! I should have guessed. Reading the headline, and the article, it'd make you think that 21st was rock bottom and absolutely the worst place to live ever, when in fact there's at least 193 fully sovereign, recognised countries in the world.
The standard of the comments is oh-so-predictable:
I am surprised Britain got as high as 21!

If the U.K is 21st, then how come we are so over populated with illegal immigrants?
Unless Norway has even more that we don't know about...?

21st? Must be rigged. There are plenty of countries I would place higher than the UK.

Norway first? And Iceland second? And Sweden ahead of France? Evidently they didn't take much account of the climate!
Who wants to live in a countries that are frozen up for months at a time and have even higher fuel taxes than the UK?

That's the first time I've ever read someone saying on the Mail website that the UK does not have the highest fuel taxes in the world. Amazing! I'm shocked.
If you all think Britain is so c**p, why don't you leave? That would go part way to solving the overpopulation problem you are always whinging on about.

I agree! If all the whingers left maybe this country would be a nice decent place to live.
Aww now you have me dreaming of this imaginary utopia with no mail readers.

Brilliant! Pat on the back for those two ladies.
Let's issue this to all the illegals camped on our borders then they might think again.
Or maybe it would be better to have a study as to which country is best for the illegals to go to for favourable treatment. Then we might come first.

There's a few more like this one too. It's as if they all think that Britain is the only destination that an illegal immigrant would consider. C**ts.
Take note all those immigrants, legal or otherwise, and perhaps try getting into Norway, or Australia or maybe Iceland.....Hmmmm thought not! You probably wouldn't have a hope in hell and would have to be vouched-for, self-supporting, skilled and healthy.
