    _Bat_: I disagree.. there are plenty of problems with the UK, although some of them were caused by the governments past and present.

    That's pretty much what I meant. The UK is fine as long as you take out all the problems the government has caused... IMO anyway.

    I would start listing them, but I might be carried away and this would turn into a rant about our current government, then they will get MI6 to kill me* .

    I see your point But it's a lot easier to move yourself to somewhere better than to remove the government and all of the problems

    Hmm, I dunno... MI5 is security and MI6 is intelligence, correct? I'd imagine both have silenced people in the past

    Nope, MI5 is internal to the UK, MI6 only operate internationally (so akin to the FBI and CIA then).

    The Wikipedia entry is pretty accurate when talking about the Directorate of Military Intelligence.

    Roles from some of the defunct agencies are now undertaken by MI5, UKSF and several civilian groups.

    MI6 will operate internally in conjuction with external powers (CIA, NSA, DGSE, SIRC, ASIS) but not on UK nationals, they then have to bring in other security sections.

    Nah, I want to go to somewhere where English is the predominant language, as I'm too lazy to learn another language.
