Depends. Property crime rates 5 times higher than the US? No right to
privacy on email? Political dissidents (irish) getting assassinated by
government SAS units? No free press (Official Secrets Act and various
libel laws)? What are the tax rates now over there? What are the value
added tax rates? Any country that taxes you on the number of closets you
have and the number of televisions you have is NOT a free country.
