    I can't stand rain, but at least I'm used to it. :D

    But if everyone is moving to Britain, I demand the right to move back. Equal rights for bad weather lovers!

    Completely forgot about Australia and New Zealand. They would be up there too. I must admit I would want to stay in the Anglo-sphere if at all possible.

    Are you joking? I have eaten fish and chips btw, it is good but nothing that special imo.

    I lived in London for 3 years and english is the only foreign language i know, so it would be the obvious place to emigrate to.

    Canada, very close culturally to the U.S. (cept for them Quebecois)

    Barring that, Britain or Australia, actually, nix Australia, I'm not going to pay absurd prices for video games.

    Then you've never had proper fish and chips, when it's made right it's sublime, when it's half-assed it's bleh.

    America, probably New York for the banking.

    Fish & chips shops are going away in London, I rarely see them any more.
    It's all about my beloved chicken & chip shops.
    Barbecue wings, spicy wings, chips and a ton of burger sauce is all I need.

    Probably England, I've always wanted to see what it's like over there. Not to mention my father's side of the family came from England a century back or so. Maybe I might have some estranged family members over there. If not that, then Iceland.

    Ok, so I hear a lot of anglophones saying they'd like to stay in the anglosphere..

    So what if I ask you to specify?

    For example, I'd choose Germany, because:
    1.similar language and culture
    2.some friends live there
    3.bundesverfassungsgezetz (every law is scrutinized by the constitution)

    You would probably state language as your primary motivation. That's fine, but is there more motivations? Let's say you all speak German, French, Japanese and any other language. Where would you go?

    Denmark or Sweden, presuming I can learn the language. If not, I'll have to settle for Canada (their internet is terrible :sad:)

    If Brazil and the UK were to disappear, I would probably go to Italy, largely due to being an Italian Citizen.

    Why do you have Italian citizenship?

    Speaking of citizenship, being Jewish, I could probably get citizenship in Israel pretty easily. Though I don't speak a lick of Hebrew, which is probably problematic...

    I have Italian citizenship due to some ancestors being from there, and so I could move to the EU without constantly needing a visa.
