    They're both former politicians, they don't actually have any influence now.

    Depends on what you specifically compare. You can't just say one is better or worse without specifying something.

    UK > Has actual history and identity. Unique pretty historical towns/cities. Best laws, world renowned schooling (well, some of them...) free healthcare.

    USA> Every city looks the same (skyscrapers, boring sameish shops on every corner...) No history or culture of any sort. Most things have been imported from other countries. No healthcare, angry men who don't want to give up guns, some can be pretty retarded (look some videos up on youtube, if you like)

    The USA has history...
    Maybe not as long as the UK but still a long and rich one...

    Anyone who says the UK us better is simply jealous of the USA...

    Lol, Brits who yearn to move to the US basically think all Americans have lives like those on imported US films/TV/YT channels, and that all of the US is rich and prosperous. In reality, that's not the case.

    The UK isn't perfect, but it's not anywhere near as bad as some people like to make out. You need to stop watching so much US media, it gives you a warped impression of the US, and other nations in comparison.

    The USA has world renowned schooling/education and history. Perhaps there isn't a single over reaching culture for the US but there is different cultures within different regions/areas of the country.'Angry men who don't want to give up guns' is a blanket stereotype. Some UK folk can be stupid too.

    I'll go for the 'boring' weather (at least we get weather...) over natural disasters that threaten to kill the planet, ta.

    You're so full of bull... Seriously.

    I asked you whether you'd consider Saudi Arabia better, you replied with something completely irrelevant and then asked if I have a problem. Someone's brain doesn't seem to be working properly, "bro".

    Are we really comparing a continent to an island? If we take that factor into account, the U.K. Wins by far.
