Norman in England sent the link to this: Gangs of “yobs” make life miserable in disarmed English cities. A brave few stand up to them. Meanwhile, law enforcement is becoming a joke, with two out of every three ASBOs being breached. I wonder: What life will be like in English cities, post-TEOTWAWKI, when only the gangsters have guns? My advice to UK urbanites has not changed: Take the gap, ladies and gents! In my (admittedly biased) opinion, places like Yorkshire and the other rural counties aren’t far enough afield to avoid trouble. Not given the nation’s high population density. There are just too many people to spread into too small an area, after TSHTF. You might perhaps consider low population density parts of Scotland or Wales, if you have family there. But otherwise you will be consider an outsider, and you do not want to be seen as the expendable new neighbor. There is already considerable antipathy directed at English land buyers in Scotland and Wales, and this will likely only get worse in the event of TEOTWAWKI. (Turbulent times tend to amplify the “we/they paradigm.”)
