in reply to My travels bear the most uncanny semblance to ...

My travels are more like refugees running from each successive dictator.

After Bush Jr. was elected, I soon found myself in Canada. Not because, but in hindsight there's seems to be some correlation.

After Stephen Harper was elected, I moved to England (not as quickly as I'd like, but still...) Managed to get my citizenship after I left (are they slow? heck!). I should have stuck around for Trudeau.

Now the Tory/LibDem coalition has turned into the Muppets Take Manhattan (or whatever the UK equivalent is). I think I just have to get my citizenship, and then find a new place.

Any recommendations? Unfortunately, my SO is not so keen to learn another language. Otherwise, I'd suggest somewhere in Scandinavia or Netherlands, or even Ireland. Australia or New Zealand might work, except for how restrictive they seem to be on immigration.
