The UK is now officially the worst place to live in Europe, with people getting a "raw deal" on quality of life and high cost of living, a new study has revealed.

Comparison website uSwitch said that things were getting so bad that one in 10 people in this country were considering emigrating.

France and Spain came out on top of uSwitch's Quality of Life Index, with the UK bottom of a 10-country league table.

The index covers working hours, VAT, holidays, spending on health and education - and hours of sunshine.

The UK also came bottom of another table based on the cost of energy, petrol, food, alcohol, cigarettes and life expectancy.

Food and diesel prices are the highest in Europe, while unleaded petrol, alcohol and cigarettes all cost more than the European average, said the report.

People in the UK now have the lowest holiday entitlement in Europe as well as having one of the highest retirement ages, the study found.

A survey of over 2,000 adults found their biggest concern was "broken society", as well as the cost of living, crime and violence.

Some 5% said they were happy with the UK, with over one in 10 "seriously considering" emigrating.

France topped the index for the third year in a row, despite the average household annual net income being £7,000 below that of the UK.

Ann Robinson, director of consumer policy at uSwitch.com, said: "Last year at least our neighbours in Ireland were worse off, now we can't even console ourselves with that.

"We are now officially at the bottom of the pile."

Expat here!

Very cool chart - I'm confused about the French working hours being 38 though, because I can assure you its 35 - maybe people are doing overtime...

I do notice that - at least in the inner cities, life in the UK seems to have really degraded, French people (as a rule) still eat together around the table, go out for walks in the evening, have family units (even if they don't marry they live with the father of their child, even working class girls don't have several babies for lots of different men, something I see more and more in my native inner city London)...

health care here is fab.

I'll probably go back to the UK one day because my mum is getting older, but I will always say that France has a better way of life, standard of living, lower crime rate (the police carry guns, if you mess with them they just shoot you in the head, better food ... the only thing that I miss is the British people, they are nicer, friendlier, more open and have a better sense of humour).

Our Father in the Heavens, Let your Name be Sanctified, Let your Kingdom come, Let your Will take place as in Heaven also upon Earth. :yes:
