How long have you lived in the U.K.?

I have been in the U.K. for eleven years.

Why did you move to the U.K.?

First and foremost, I am not here for benefits. I moved to the U.K. because I wanted to get a proper job in biology or bioinformatics. 

What does your family think about you living in the U.K.?

Since my parents have divorced I have taken care of myself, we lead separate lives.

As a European, what's it like living in the U.K.?

The people and the weather are both unpredictable. The "free" NHS is paid through the taxes. Life is too expensive for people with average and below average salaries. Renting is really pricey too. Hungary is a really bureaucratic country but the U.K. is much more bureaucratic and over-regulated. I read that British politicians spent 2 million on biscuits in 2013-2014. I am sure these expensive "biscuits" are just tip of the iceberg. Even charity organisation bosses get six-figure salaries! England is as bad as any other country, and as good as any other country.

 

What do you dislike about living in the U.K.?

Being a single European male in the U.K. is a massive disadvantage. I have my degree and skills but I have never had a proper job in my profession, and it is all about discrimination. I also dislike the political parties and lack of environmental protection.

What do you think about Brexit?

I think the amount of money the U.K. had to pay to Brussels was the reason behind Brexit. Regardless, the European people deserve so much more than just a settled status. I think we deserve a British passport after we've lived in the U.K. for more than five years. 

 

Will you stay in the U.K. after the Brexit transition period?

If I have better options, I will leave the U.K. For example, if I get into a serious relationship elsewhere.

What would you like people who voted Brexit to know?

The Prime Minister promised 40 NHS hospitals, so where are the bricks for the 40 NHS hospitals? Instead of NHS hospitals more Chinese investors will come to the U.K., like Huawei and Jingye.
