    I think if you are bored with the huge variety of scenery in the US, then it won't take long to tire of the green rolling hills of the UK! Not to mention the traffic on our congested Island....

    Yes, get over yourself! Ain't nothing special about your credentials that's going to get you a work permit in the UK. Heck, there are Polish drivers with more experience than you have who will work for half what you make, and they are already in the UK. And, brother, if you hate them democrats with their regulations and taxes? Hoo, boy, you ain't seen NOTHIN like British taxes and regulations!! Man, if you want to escape the US because you don't like Biden, trust me, England is NOT where you want to go. Maybe Hungary, or Belarus would be more your speed...

    I hear those road train drivers that drive in Australia make pretty good money. But it takes a certain type of person to live in the outback

    Not a job for a steering wheel holder , you would also need to be able to change tyres and have mechanical knowledge

    It was possible to get a business visa and set up a business in the UK if that is your goal, most of the options available are for existing companies wishing to expand overseas, so like if Swift in the US wished to set up a company in the UK that would be quite easy to do with their millions of cash reserves and proof that they are a publicly traded IPO. Think you'll find there are better options outside of the UK, like France or Germany the only issue is the language barrier. Some of the former Soviet Block counties like Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia also have some good company set up options.
