Today, I am getting ready to emigrate

The words uttered during the Famine spring to my mind today: "The best go and the worst stay". Today, I am getting ready to emigrate. Like all those graduates of my generation, I am stuck.

I am fully qualified having got my BA and MSc, yet I am unable to gain work experience, never mind a job. So, I am choosing a route that so many have before me -- emigrating to foreign shiny shores.

So who can I blame for this situation? The Government or the electorate, who put so much faith in a government that takes everything and gives nothing in return?
