The revelation came after it was revealed that Russian president Vladimir Putin is offering 2.5 acres of land for free to people willing to move to the country’s Siberian wilderness in a bid to boost the area’s economy.
The scheme has captured the imagination of the British public, many of whom have been seduced by the area’s stunning natural beauty as well as Mr Putin’s no-nonsense leadership style.
“There’s also definitely disillusionment with the UK, with British life. We’re all subservient, we won’t know what’s going on.”
He also cited “the change in demographics and seeing rural areas change with urbanisation” as reasons for considering the move.”
Another respondant to the poll said: “I like Vladimir Putin even more now. Ah, to be 30 years younger. I would be on my way there now.”
Others pointed to the upcoming EU referendum and a possible vote against Brexit as motivation to make the move 500 miles east to ‘the land where ice meets fire.’
One person said: “It would be a lot better then living under Cameron’s and Corbyn’s EU law.”
Another added: “Thank you for your kind offer Mr Putin, if we do not get out of the EU many may be taking up your offer in the future.”
