    • Yes I was really hoping to see him unseated during the last election but no. Him and Hollande do not do well together and it's a shame because the world really needs their two countries to work together right now. I know Britaina and France have a dubious past but as allies they are stronger together than apart. I'm hoping Hillary wins the U. S. Elections because I think she can help forge a union. Hoping but not getting my hopes up, pretty much the only thing the GOP can agree on these days is that Hollary has to go. They HATED Bill but it's nothing in comparison to the loathing they feel towards her.

  • My world geography teacher when I was 8 -.- I cannot forget how many times she had to correct me that "Great Britain" is not England. Then when the test is around the corner, she'd come searching for me and remind me that England is a part of Great Britain, not Great Britain itself. She's a great teacher (=

  • Rain.

    Police that arrest people in midnight raids for angry anti-muslim facebook posts, or track people down and arrest them for saying "racist" things.

    A populace that is amazingly and utterly disarmed, helpless.

    A government that is importing hundreds of thousands of Africans and Arabs to de facto turn London and England into Saudia Arabia or Kenya, depending on the area.

    • That's ridiculous. Britain keeps a reasonably right border in comparison to other countries and certainly compared to the Schengen area. Still international law is such that if they sneak across your border and seek asylum they can squat there while in process. I like Muslims but I do understand the upset for Western Europe. I also understand the people flooding the countries right now are coming from a very desperate situation. Most don't want trouble and want to contribute to society but the few bad apples make trouble for them all.

    • @sjoes006

      Is it bad that I find it hilarious how you didn't dispute the "midnight raids on people for angry anti-muslim facebook posts, or tracking down and arresting people for saying "racist" things?"

    • I can't speak to that but it certainly isn't the sentiment we feel England expressing. England has taken on more refugees lately but still no where near as many as the rest of the EU is taking on. And poor Greece is taking th by the boat loads when their own people are hand to mouth at best. Britain is an amazing country that I quite admire despite the issues of the past during Thatcher's reign. I'm not that keen on Cameron and hope he goes but I do hold England very close to my heart. The past is the past.

  • Harry potter, tea, crumpets, we kicked their ass, those guards with the furry hats, more tea and the queen with her tea

  • A miserable, cold, damp, rainy, grey place full of angry, cynical, xenophobic drunks.

    I lived there a decade and a half, and if I never have to go back it'll be too soon.

    • As a Brit, I'm largely inclined to agree with you. Then again, it's probably the worst in London, the height of the rat race.

  • Great music, great authors, Henry VIII.
