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

Reminds me of an GI info film I saw on youtube
It was mostly about teaching the white GI's not to flip out if they saw an old white woman talking to a black man. Seriously. Racial segregation was still in force so they had to educate them to not expect the rest of the world to be massively racist.

During the war, there was a group of white GIs in the UK who used to go to my gran's local pub. One night they went in and were pissed off to find a group of black soldiers in "their" corner of the pub. On top of that, the white soldiers were shocked to see that the staff were washing and re-using glasses after black people had drunk from them, same as they would with white customers. They ordered the blacks out of the pub and demanded the (white) landlord smash up all the glasses that they had used, and when he refused, they kicked him out of his own pub!

Starting/continuing an american military tradition.
Wherever they are, they act like they own the place and then wonder why everybody hates them.

Probably what we were like in the 19th century.
