Brits leave Blighty in droves

10% of Britons now live abroad:
Quote:
Studies by the Institute for Public Policy Research, published on the BBC News website, indicates that at least 5.5m British-born people live abroad.

The number of British citizens who chose to go permanently abroad doubled from 53,000 in 2001 to 107,000 last year - some 2,000 people a week.
See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6210358.stm

Also new arrivals into Britain are coming at the rate of 1000 a week. Will I go back one day and find myself abroad?
