'Always' is a long time, and who's to say that the UK won't change the rules on this at some point in the future? It wouldn't be the first time they've made a change involving citizenship / right of abode.curiousgeorge wrote:2) You can always get it back!
Who's to say it will keep on rising? Personally I think the relentless pursuit of GDP growth at all costs is unsustainable in the current climate where a lot of the local populace want to kick out the foreign employers* who are providing them with jobs, renting their over-priced condos, etc. I also don't think Singapore alone has any unique opportunities these days - there are other places that can now compete and be cheaper and/or more attractive towards foreign companies who want to set up shop.curiousgeorge wrote:5) The rising economic climate in this region. The potential here. The opportunities Singapore alone presents.
So, to spend some time in Singapore, sure - a good experience for many people, and I'm glad I had my decade there (so far). But to sever your ties back home and commit 'forever' to a 'castle in the sand'? Personally I wouldn't do it, but that's just me.
