See the results of the uSwitch Quality of Life Index 2011


According to the latest uSwitch Quality of Life Index the UK and Ireland are the worst places to live in Europe, while France and Spain are the best.

The UK came 9th out of the 10 countries in the list – thanks to the fact that we pay the highest prices for food and diesel, work longer hours, retire later, get less annual holiday, enjoy fewer hours of sunshine and our government’s below average spending on health and education.  Oh, and just to round it off nicely we can expect to die two years younger than our French counterparts too.

What do you think of the results? Is living in the UK really that bad?
