Why do Pakistanis want to live in Britain ?

Positive views of the United Kingdom have risen, making it the second most popular country in the world.

The BBC World Service Country Rating Poll asked nearly 29,000 people to rate the global influence of 16 major nations and the European Union.

The UK’s positive rating rose from 53% in 2010 to 58% this year. It is the first time it has been the runner-up in the annual poll.

Negative views of the UK decreased by 2%, now standing at 17%. Of the 27 countries polled, 24 lean positive towards the UK while 2, includingPakistan, has an overall negative view of the UK.

So why do Pakistanis want to live here ?

Is it because the UK has:

•Good standards of education
•A free health service
•High life expectancy
•low infant mortality rates
•Relativley low crime rate and fear of crime
•Higher average earnings than many other countries
•A strong currency
•A generous benifits system
•English is also one of the most widely spoken languages in the world

Or is it because of Arab racism towards Pakistanis that they would prefer to live in Britain than in Saudi Arabia as racist humiliations from shop-keepers, taxi- drivers, catering staff and so on have become a regular feature of the pilgrimage to Mecca for the diverse ethnic groups of Islam ?
