The uSwitch Quality of Life Index revealed the ten best and worst countries to live in in Europe.

The UK came out bottom.

The reasons?

  • Long working hours.
  • Low number of holiday days a year.
  • Expensive food, high energy prices.
  • Higher than average petrol costs.
  • High retirement age.
  • Lack of sunshine.

Coming out on top were France and Spain , while Sweden and Ireland joined UK in the bottom three.

We asked a few people around the office what they thought about these findings, and whether the UK really is the worst place to live?

A surprising number seem to disagree,  saying they think England isn’t really that bad.

Do you agree with the results of the Quality of Life index? What makes living in the UK so bad?
