    Well, there's a couple of things on both sides.

    Pros:
    Freedom of speech (albiet socially negotiated)
    multicultural sociey (although not really very diverse in Cornwall)
    We have interesting weather (you never know what it'd do from one minute to the next - stereotypical small talk for us Brits)
    British films - Like American films, only a slightly different sense of humour and greater emphasis on irony.
    NHS - If we get hurt, we get help no matter how poor you are (although you may have to wait 2 years)...

    Cons:
    Government - incompetent and decietful
    Cost of living - Whilst not being unbearable like some other countries, it's can still get quite unfair, especially when you live in a part of the country with the highest house prices and the lowest wages - you don't leave home until you're 33! (If you're lucky!)
    Geo political forces - We're constantly torn between US and Europe, both looking like giants that don't really care about what the British want or need.
    CHAV's and racism - Whilst not exclusively British, we do have plenty of racism here, and the CHAV's make a mockery of the Justice system.
    Nationalism - A whole heap of problems there.

    Overall, if there was actually a place on Earth whereby the politicians were out for the people rather than profits, where pride is secondary to logic and where the state is run as a social backbone and not as a buisness, I would prefer to move there. But since it's not going to happen any time soon, I think I'll just grin and bear it here.

    the arrogance and ignorance in englad angers me...i live in london, but more and more people are becoming NF's (National Fronts).

    They dislike all foreign people, who ever they may be. What they dont realise is, no one is really "English" lol. The english came from many parts of the Europe, Normandy (French), Romans (italian), Vikings (Scandinavia) and some other groups that moved in to or invaded Britain

    Hmm, who advocates the "don't do that or that"? It's the people whom think they can speak for everyone. Even in the "winter festivals" instead of "Christmas" 2006, the majority in other religions said it was going too far. It's enforced by people who think they can speak on behalf of others, but even then, all they're doing is promoting difference.
    multicultural society So much so that English people are rare
    What do you define as "English"? Do you mean white people or people that were born in the UK? Cos I've known many non-white people that were born in the UK.
    We have interesting weather 4 sessions in one day
    True. Though at least it doesn't mean we are constantly flooded/constantly having droughts... Instead, we only have floods part time, droughts part time!
    British films - Monty Python
    And others... Danny Boyle's films are usually ones to remember.
    Government - Likes foreigners hates proper English
    The Govenment hates everyone equally... Only the English don't have another Government to turn to.
    Cost of living - Unless your a foreigner this is a problem
    Living in this country is very difficult for "foreigners". It's just that they seem to be able to cope easier with sub-standard conditions due to privation.
    CHAV's and racism - We cant say anything about them but they can call us every thing
    Agreed and backed up by countless local stories of people being beaten to death by CHAVs and nothing happening.
    http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regio...09/277884.html
    Also, this does link in with nationalism quite a bit.

    I agree with ottoman. It comes to something whereby political parties can form such as BNP, Veritas and UKIP. These are right winged/racist parties that shouldn't even be in the electorial process. Not to mention ones on local levels. If anything, they shoud be reduced down to pressure groups at best (single agenda parties can never work and will never work).

    There blood line is fully English
    There first lanwich is English

    And others... Danny Boyle's films are usually ones to remember.
    But MP films are the ones best known

    All our jobs go to them
    The government gives them money
