I Don't Like It But I'm Staying Here

I do love the argument that if you don't like it, you should go live in Russia or Cuba but by coincidence the same argument is used in Russia or Cuba where they say if you don't like it, go live in USA or UK but the argument is futile because of the logistics to moving abroad.
Why would anyone go to Cuba, Russia or anywhere if they didn't have a job there or somewhere to live and what about having to learn a new language and the whole change in culture.
You wouldn't be able to listen to the radio or watch the TV because you wouldn't understand any of the programmes and then there are the problems with schools for the kids and driving on the opposite side of the road.
Least of the problems is the expense of hiring an International removal firm and the weather, Cuba would be far too hot for my pale skin and Russian winters are legendary harsh.
Far better and much easier to stay here and moan about things we don't like and if we didn't vote for the current Government, it is perfectly legitimate to say i will stay here and bitch about the things rather than go through the upheaval and expense of upping-sticks and moving to Havana or Moscow thank you.
Besides, hanging about here really annoys the people who say silly things like that.

Wow, really. Don't have a job. Don't speak the language.

Millions have come to the USA and UK without a job, without knowing the Lang.
