    Not really sure this is true.

    We certainly value liberty more than most but liberalism in the modern vernacular is far more prominent in Europe.

    Britain has both right wing and left wing 'liberals' and the struggles between them are not so different here to those elsewhere, but the delusion that only the Right properly understands what liberalism is - well, that's just a delusion.

    America has better music and sitcoms

    We are the best country in general though
    No way! I disagree with that! We have much better sitcoms and music! Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, The Beatles, Queen, The Cure etc! They revolutionised music!!!!

    And the sitcoms are so much better- monty Python, Allo Allo, Fawlty towers, IT crowd, the inbetweeners, black adder etc!

    Don't be as sickeningly patriotic as the Americans. I hate blind patriotism.

    You can omit a few of those now, post-Brexit Britain is rather different

    Liberty and liberalism are two very different things.

    The US after its foundations was built on liberty.. and yet practised slavery.

    In that same vein the UK values liberty and compared to the globe as a whole is fairly liberal, but is not what i'd consider a country which values liberalism above all else.

    Note the common thread here - they are all old, apart from Inbetweeners.

    Most quality media now comes from the US. We still have a music industry but it's in decline.

    Take that Vesuvius. Go away Plains of Northern Germany and France. See yourself to the door, dreary Alpine ranges. Our little hillocks have charm.

    I think Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Black Sabbath would all disagree with you on that point.

    Yes but the American sitcoms which are on display now will never be as good as the classic British sitcoms.

    Britain is the master of comedy.

    American humour is too staged and cheesy

    There is nothing to be proud off having visited other countries this country isn't that special anymore.
    My reasons

    Bad public transport
    Reserved people
    Bad healthcare yes the NHS isn't all that when compared to the quality of healthcare at other countries
    Bad food
    Class system no other country has a class system
    Royal family hello it's 2016 not the 15th century

    Sorry Brits but you aint that special anymore
