Cassis Posted January 6, 2007 Share Posted January 6, 2007 Since Xmas, those who have been passing through here on their way back to France from visits to family etc. in UK say they are all pleased to be back and many have stories of how life there has declined (rude youths, lack of manners, no respect for others, etc., as before or worse). Those returning to the UK talk of how they enjoyed their stay in France/Spain or wherever but do not mention declining UK social mores as a contributory factor - maybe they have been coccooned with friends or family during their stay and so do not notice the difference. I think you have to beware of cognitive dissonance among those who have invested in a move to France, or those who have moved back. Everyone is inclined to defend personal choices in all matters, great and small, from where they live to which bank or mobile phone operator they use.You only have to be on this forum a short time to see how heated some get when someone suggests that they may have made the wrong choice or could have done better.
