This is a question Why I Love/Hate Britain

This week's been all about the Daily Mail and why people love or hate their country. Tell us one thing you hate about Britain, and one thing about why you love it.

This shouldn't be an excuse for RACISTLOLS, or long lists of things you dislike. Be intelligent, be funny, and be interesting

I like Britain.

I like the fact that our national attributes are inventiveness and slacking off. We’re the cool kids of Europe, punching well above our weight in science and patents and at the same time pissing it all away on cheap cider, teenage pregnancy and rock & roll. We could be all successful and German if we wanted to, but as a great man once said, Fuck That Shit.

I think we would have chosen to be successful and German
if we hadn't seen what it did to their sense of humour.
At that point we all said, "Fuck that shit."

given that the funding for our "science" is drying up like spit on a hot stove, and that the science that remains is rooted in dishonesty and corruption,
e.g. www.independent.co.uk/news/science/the-bad-science-scandal-how-factfabrication-is-damaging-uks-global-name-for-research-8660929.html

it's little wonder that any company with half an ounce of sense is permanently outsourcing its research to the continent

still, I'm 100% confident that our world-class insurance, financial services and call centres will save us from becoming nothing more than a grey concrete brain-drained wasteland from which no-one can easily escape unless they have the brains and financial means to study and live abroad from the age of 16 onwards
