    That said, I'm not hugely enthusiastic about being british. I just couldn't stand to be anything else.

    This was true in the time of Cecil Rhodes maybe, More than a hundred years ago.

    I'm not sure why I love England.

    Only to say, I love England in the same way I love my family, without rhyme or reason and because I was born to both.

    I'd most likely choose England again, to be honest. All things considered, it's a place I'm very happy to have had the privilege to be born and brought up in.

    If I got the choice, I would have picked a much better area of my city to grow up in, but eh.

    (Original post by Hydeman)
    Canada, probably.
    This would be my other choice.

    Australia = evil spiders. No thank you.

    Why not the UK? It's a pretty great place, in my opinion.

    UK the weather is not so good.
    And it's overcrowded.
    No beaches or open spaces.
