What do you LOVE about this Country?

I hate negative ppl. Lets show everyone why Britain CAN be GREAT!!!!

I love...(to kick it off)...

1) That in summer...all the women look hot! It's like they've been hibernating and in summer they come out of their slumber

2) That even though we're a rich, successful country, we dont entirely leave the poor behind - ok, ok...we do give out TOOOO much in benefits etc...but at least no one is starving on the street (fact)

3) We're still the 3rd or 4th most powerful military in the world...yet a country of only 63m, with less landmass than California

4) We let people make mostly their own mistakes - you get let off for smoking weed, allowed to drink till all hrs in the morning, and have a pretty lax view of sexual moral. Great isnt it! Do what you want, and if you come a cropper, at least you had the chance to try it!

5) We make Lotus - gorgeous and sexy

6) We invented James Bond. When was the last time anyone else made a hero that cool, who could shag about, kill ppl, and still have little kids looking up to him?

7) We have world famous comedy and music...again from a country only 63m deep.

8) We once owned the world, we ruled the seas, and we created the way India, Australia, America and Canada are today. We are almost as influencial as the Romans.

9) We have several world leading businesses - EMI, Vodaphone, Tescos...all leaders in their field.

10) The London Stock exchange is the 2nd biggest stock exhange in the world, behind the NYSE

11) We are seen as a Mecca buy huge numbers of people around the world, who'll run through tunnels, sneak onto lorrys, and risk their life to get here, because they KNOW them and their familys will have a better life here. We are a beacon of hope for millions, if not billions of ppl around the world.

12) Despite no longer being a superpower, we're still adventurers. Look at the discoveries over the past 100yrs and you'll see many if not most of them, were led by British people.

What do you love about England?

    No tax on gambling,
    Agree with point 1[Except the ones who think a belly top actually REQUIRES a belly] and 10!
    Although its not perfect, having the hospitals and emergency services there in times of immediate need is a great thing!

    having travelled a reasonable portion of the world for one person the things i really really love about this country are:

    tap water you can drink.

    no mosquitos

    lack of disease

    low levels of violence

    politically stable - lack of coups

    massive selection of food

    ethnic diversity

    weather

    free health care

    free education

    great entertainment

    culture and arts easily accessible and relatively uncensored

    Hey on an average night out, in an average venue, there's at least 5 stunners to chat up :)

    Over the past yr, i've NEVER, EVER felt tempted to pull a heffer in England lol...that's how many hot ones are about, even when I'm pissed up lol!

    That is not the same in the states (60% chubby heffers..40% stone cold foxes..in Cali anyways)

    I prefer England...since I think Scotland and Wales suck money off us (the Scottish Economy doesnt earn enough to pay it's tax useage...so England subsidies it...true story)....

    BUT....go for whatever you want. If you have good things to say about Scotland and Wales, go for it :)

    The Isle of Man is also acceptable as "Britain", since the IoM is an ace place!!
