Fantastic thread. Can we maybe extend it to other dictators and list the few good things they did which still don't cancel out the evil they carried out?

 

I mean, even Hitler did some good things.

You get married and you get $50k? That cannot be true can it?

 

Seems there would be a pretty easy scam to pull off

 

 

on the other hand- getting caught in fake weding scams = arms getting puulled off.

Not sure how true all that is.  If the government were giving away that sort of money, and things like bread and petrol were so cheap, why doesn't everyone there live in a mansion?

More so, if people in Libya are living as they are now, with all of these benefits, how fucked will they be in the future without them?

Now lets compare that with the UK.

 

Great Manmade River - And?

 

There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens - Thats pretty decent but I wouldn't go as far as asking for that here, just making prices more reasonable/affordable.

 

There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at zero percent interest by law. - Banks need to be competitive over here as we aren't a total socialist and self reliant country, banks need to profit somehow and interest on a loan is fair so long as it's not one of those Wonga.com 3333% style loans.

 

Having a home considered a human right in Libya - It is here as well, if you are homeless then you would be at the top of a housing priority list, while you wait you will be given a place in either a hostel or a B&B if you have nowhere else to stay.

 

All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 dinar (U.S.$50,000) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family. - Could you imagine that here when a marriage lasts about the same time as a McDonalds inside a fat fighters club?

 

Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25 percent of Libyans were literate. Today, the figure is 83 percent - Education is free in a lot of countries if not most of the wealthiest, medical treatment should be the same across the globe.

 

Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kickstart their farms are all for free - Where does all this land come from?, victims of his regime I'm guessing.

 

If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need, the government funds them to go abroad, for it is not only paid for, but they get a U.S.$2,300/month for accommodation and car allowance - Our medical (NHS) system is one of the best in the world, if the NHS can't provide it then patients are sent to private clinics. We also have the use ambulances.

 

If a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidizes 50 percent of the price - People should be encouraged to use public transport.

 

The price of petrol in Libya is $0.14 per litre - One of the perks of being an oil rich nation.

 

Libya has no external debt and its reserves amounting to $150 billion are now frozen globally - Lucky them

 

If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation the state would pay the average salary of the profession, as if he or she is employed, until employment is found - Ever heard of Job seekers allowence?

 

A portion of every Libyan oil sale is credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens - Another perk of being an oil rich country, also doesn't the USA do something similar to citizens in Alaska?

 

A mother who gives birth to a child receive U.S.$5,000 - Ever heard of child benefit?

 

40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $0.15 - Baking bread of your own in the UK is fairly cheap and is better than the stuff you get off the shelf.

 

25 percent of Libyans have a university degree - The amount of people going to university in the UK is on the increase year by year, isn't it something like 50% at the minute?

 

Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Manmade River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country - We don't need anything like that here as we are an island.

Yes Stifler. But an island with huge water bills (owned by French companies and so on..). Who knew?  :frantic:

Yeah it's kind of fucked up how our water bills are quite expensive yet we are surrounded by water. Wasn't there a time when London had a hose pipe ban and a flood warning once? Thats fucked up.

 

Still I'd rather live in the UK at any point since 1969 than Libya at any point since 1969.
