Top three mobile application threats

People in Britain are bloody miserable with nearly a quarter of men and women fearing a hopeless future, according to research out today.

This shocking insight into the health of the nation comes from NetDoctor.co.uk, which questioned 400 men and women as part of the survey.

The results show that nearly one in three men and women often feel downright miserable and feel that life is passing them by.

A quarter feel life is unfair, and more than one in 10 feels that fate has dealt them a miserable life about which they can do nothing.

Nearly one in 10 think their death would make things better for others.

NetDoctor.co.uk expert and psychotherapist, Christine Webber, who carried out the survey, said: "Sadly, these results come as no surprise to me.

"It seems people's lives do not live up to their extremely high expectations of what things should be like and it is particularly worrying to see so many people dwelling on morbid thoughts, with a large proportion just plain exhausted by life," she said.

The survey explored attitudes to happiness, health, friends and family, sex, relationships, work, spirituality and the future.

It didn't look at issues such as the cost of Net access, local loop unbundling, big brother e-spying powers, the way Government tries to make out it's e-friendly when really, it isn't - you know, that kinda thing.

Which is just well. For if it did, it would find that Brits weren't just miserable - they were downright suicidal. ®
