    Are there any clubs for Brits in South Africa/JHB? I'm 33 years old, fully British but stuck in SA by virtue of having a wife who won't live in Europe (and besides, how could we go back, the UK is hostile for Christians these days). I don't know anyone from back home, I don't have anyone left in the UK either and I really miss the place. The daily life in JHB, the viciously selfish and aggressive locals get me down and there's just nothing good left about SA - it used to be the food, the weather, the people, a good cost of living... but all the good stuff is gone and we're left with a stinking communist 3rd world country.
