That one family is leaving London is not news in itself, but I sense a trend in this, as I'm seeing more and more people feel this way about the places they've lived and worked:
It's awful. We're not poor. Hell, in any other city (and by national standards), we are the one percent. The poor people we know and live near are in much worse shape -- for one thing, they can't leave. We've seen the writing on the wall: this is not a city for families. It's not a city for people running small firms. It's not a city for people who earn their living in the arts. We've given it the best we have, and we're getting out because we can.
Dave Galbraith's tweet is a nice extension to that trend:
As people leave London, my life in a farmhouse with fiber, near an airport reinforces what I wrote here http://t.co/t7ih7Zn4Tw— David Galbraith (@daveg) June 29, 2015
Copenhagen is nowhere near the level of these problems (though it's not without its creases with the new government and all), but I'm not impervious to that lure of having a house somewhere cheaper, as long as there's fast internet and an airport nearby.
