    From my experience, history is the only thing the UK has going for it, the people are too proud and are somehow still miserable and have no lack of sarcasm, the politicians have to regard for their constituents and frankly I would rather be anywhere else (within reason so Europe and the Northern Americas).
    I like history but the UK is too focused on the past IMO. I'm proud of our traditions but there is a reason the UK is falling behind in many areas

    I haven't lived in Newcastle. Is there a lot going for young people?

    TSR Mustafa have you lived in Amsterdam?

    katemate98 Noticed that myself earlier :lol: Bill_Gates has posted a lot of stuff I agree with in response to the other part of your post
    It was voted number one city in Europe for nightlife (if that's what you enjoy) and there's lots of natural beauty and countryside if you enjoy that. The only proper city in the north east is Newcastle so everywhere else revolves around it, so the city centre (although it's smaller than expected) is very dense with things to do. When it comes to youth culture most of it comes from the cities 3 educational institutes which are very close to each other (Newcastle College,Northumbria Uni and Newcastle Uni).

    Toronto and Vancouver two of the best cities in the world right now. It's not even cold in vancouver and only rarely extreme chills in Toronto.

    I'd much prefer someone to answer with experience. P.S it's people like you who make Britain depressing. People just full of patriotic ****** and narrow minded views. No wonder this country is lagging.
    Have you ever actually been to either? Toronto is like a **** New York and Vancouver a **** Sidney. Have you ever actually lived outside this country?

    So full of bull**** its untrue.

    Only rarely extreme chills in Toronto? You're out of your ****ing mind. Everything freezes in November and doesn't melt again until April. Its miserable as ****.

    Toronto isn't as bad as you seem to think, yes it snows but obviously you're prepared for that if you want to live there. I agree about the **** New York thing though, they've tried to make it New York but on a low budget it seems. It doesn't have the same character or grit as New York which is a shame.

    I hate the UK it's awful. The only thing I like is the healthcare aspect. I wish I was born in America and had a life like every American high school film ever made

    Its not a bad place at all, I gave serious consideration to going to university there as I like North America and have lived there before. Its just no better or worse than any other large North American city.

    I've spent about a year in Canada and people there just seem much happier than people in the UK. I've also lived in Scotland and England and I found people in Scotland seem to be less depressive than people in England .That could be just my experience though.

    If I could I'd move to Canada permanently but the job situation is a bit of a problem just now. Maybe one day...

    Am I the only person here who actually loves living in Britain?
    No, I love it too. I love what it could be, and I love our ancient brythonic and goidelic heritages.

    I love living here, I was born here and my parents moved to England when they were young from Pakistan. Having listened to stories by them, I have never been so grateful to be raised in such a liberal country and go to a great university. Of course, the weather pisses me off when its cold, but when the suns out, I love eating magnums at the park and throwing bread at ducks. If you don't like living here, its understandable, other countries have greater things about them but I'll always prefer home over them.
