Despite the weather, some people and some food - England is great and we are incredibly fortunate to be living here.
Could use a general reform of welfare, using expenditure on free university education and rebuilding families instead of governing in the interests of private interests, would like to see government funding business / culture and working more like unions.
Other than that, it's a good place to live if you stay away from the chavs.
I don't hate England. I love England,
But I'm still considering emigrating in a few years, it's a toss-up between Iceland or Canada.
I am grateful to be living in England as I am not a person to be so ungrateful. But sometimes it is quite depressing due to the weather.
I think this country is great, free healthcare, no conscription, no capital punishment, homosexuality and transgenderism legal, reasonable taxes, moderate politics, legal prostitution, social housing, effective law enforcement, safe roads, low levels of racism and sexism, subsidized education, good economy, decent transport system. As much as I can't stand the people and weather I can't fault the country itself.
Even so if you feel like you don't fit in you feel like you don't fit in. This is very important and telling somewhere "it's better than Africa" won't make this go away. As I said the country is extremely well run and free but I feel that everyone is cold and unfriendly towards me which is why I personally would consider moving. Not sure exactly what OP's reasons are but I can understand.
I love Uk and will always do
Stop being Grumpy old sorts. I love Uk
Please respect this country when you are here. Work hard and pay your f*** taxes and shut the hell up.
I reserve my strongest contempt for the slang and food.
I hate modern British culture, not the actual country
Work 40 hours in an office,
live on tesco sandwiches,
gossip about the football, the neighbours, the weather,
go out drinking on the weekend.
It's a miserable, nihilistic life
No one hates England more than the English. Why else would they vote for Brexit???
If you really wish an unpleasant opinion about UK, here's something from my
acquaintance who came back from UK a few months ago:
"Entire general knowledge of an average Englishman can be written on two pages of Daily Mirror with lots of photos on both. Rats can be met on streets, the food is below any criticism, and their doctors can only prescribe Paracetamol for every illness. This pseudo-country is a joke, and I'm glad I'm no longer there."
I hate what its becoming. Theresa May and her 'country that works for all' is complete BS, its just getting harder for normal people. And I hate how divided the country is and can't go a day without hearing about brexit. I don't care anymore, the country voted leave so just let the government get on with it and stop moaning, the country will be less miserable and better to live in.
