|We rip them off more|
UK takes the big money and the best
- From- PC470t - On the bus was a bank manager travelling to
work in a small town. He told me how he had visited Kent as he has
one daughter studying forensics there and how she would get a good
job in England (she already has a British passport somehow. ) ....
and how he and his wife will go to retire in England..... And
how his other daughter is studying to be a doctor and will also move
- Poor guy he has invested so much money in the dream of retiring
abroad, but I am almost certain he will find himself living all
his retirement in Nepal, because even if I married a woman from
the developing world it would be difficult to get her a visa to
visit the UK and so I think the days when immigrants could bring
their parents into the UK as dependents are long gone. If they
allowed him and his wife to live in the UK that would mean they
could get 30 years of free healthcare and that would cost a fortune
with the only money coming into the UK being the tax paid by his
daughter. Yes, his daughter might be able as a professional worker
to get UK residency. The UK will steal all the best workers from other
countries. We will take the other daughter the doctor aswell, but
then that leaves Nepal people without enough doctors or forensics
|Irony Nepalis leave for Money , Foreigners Volunteer |
Irony - Nepalis leave for money and to help themselves -
foreigners come to help the poor for no money (for feelgood
factor of giving)- It's strange that I met a number of English
doctors/experts who have come to help the people here by
volunteering for 3 months or a year, but the Nepali doctors 30% of
them leave on graduation. If the Nepali doctors stayed then there
would be no need for foreign doctors.
- Not only that we have succeeded in
brainwashing him to the dubious benefits of a British University a
better education can be obtained twice as fast for half the cost
not finished 11/1/2009 a Stew Green Opinion
-Every day in Nepal I have to worry about maybe the restaurant is
ripping me off for 30p of the bus for 50p, but ... The British
system rips of the Nepalese guy in paying for tens of thousands of
pounds for the education, then also rips of the Nepalese Economy for
the best people ( braindrain)
- The bank manager will be OK,in all probability money will keep
flowing out of Nepal which will help keep the Nepalese currency low.
So when his daughter sends him money from the UK it will pay for an
adequate retirement in the sunshine of Nepal instead of the rain and
misery of the UK. Although he will have to suffer the problems of
the Nepalese economy and politics like bad roads and powercuts.
| The bigger opportunities are bigger in Nepal longterm|
I remember I met a Singaporean old man who had emigrated to the US
35 years ago for the first 20 years he could holiday with his
dollars in Singapore like a rich man, but now he is poor in the US
whilst his Singaporean relatives have more money than him.
would say to the doctor daughter that actually the possible
opportunities in Nepal should be bigger that the UK. Buy a house in
the UK for $300,000 and it will still be worth $300,000 in 20 years
time, but a house or business which you buy in Nepal for $10,000
willl be worth $300,000 in 20 years time given stable politics.
- However I would have said that to a Korean and a Nepali 20
years ago and I would have been right for the Korean and completely wrong for the Nepali.
- The Nepalis pessimism in their own economy is a self fulfilling
