Inspired by the other threads, what is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the UK? (And maybe even Canada and USA if you can be bothered)

For me:
The queen
Tea
London

I love the UK, the weather's really not as bad as the exaggerated stereotype makes out and the people aren't as cold and reserved as claimed either.

I asked the same question but instead of the UK I asked about Pakistan. Many people posted pictures of the Taliban and extremist.

Love it.

Great people, good range of food, good healthcare system, best universities in the world and generally progressive/liberal.

Not as great as it was. Used to be the center of the world. It isn't anymore. Just another nation.
