    well no ******* **** there are gonna be SOME flags out there, but the fact is that there isn't enough, you're more likely to get in trouble for putting up an england flag because you offend some oversensitive muslim.
    There is not enough, there are some, they are not out there because they offend people of other faiths, nationalities or from different background. It is just not muslims alone who are offended.

    The food, the women, the weather, all great, but just for how backwards it feels living in southern Italy for a few weeks, just really annoys me, the population in the south is ageing so much as you said because of the youth moving north, but you cant just abandon half a country! Still, I do love Italy, but England edges it for me.
    I absolutely love the south. Ok, I've not lived there, but I have visited my fathers friends villa there quite a few times and it's so peaceful and different. The food is also very yummy :yep:

    I guess if I lived there though I'd go crazy after a while. No internet = no life

    Because of what it used to symbolize years ago. We all know england wasnt really down with the huge amount of immigrants that "invaded" the country, and back then, a flag outside a window was their way to show that they were not welcome.
    Sorry but in most cases this was the harsh truth.

    Why do people always talk about food as if it's only available in the region it came from and a reason to move there?, I can get some Italian food now if I want.

    They can be so annoying (the ones in London).
    They're obsessed with Italy; they have to have a massive Italian flag hanging in every room of their houses.
    Everyone HAS to know they're Italian. Every single sentence involves "yeah well I'm Italian).
    Everything they do is Italian... everything they say is about how much better it would be if they were in Italy.
    Every single FB status is "FORZA ITALIA!!!!" and they never shut the hell up about winning the football.
    And they all bunch together in little groups of Italianess, because God forbid they should hang out with someone who's not Italian!
    They would never go to an Indian restaurant; hellll no. Every restaurant they go to has to be a derivative of Little Italy. Because they can never get enough of their spaghetti.
    *Sigh*

    In that case, why are you at a British Uni. Oh, hang on, its because Italian Unis are ****. Or are you going to argue that Universities "dont affect your life directly"? ******* moron, think before typing.
    Lol that statement was to get views against it. wasnt that like from page 1 or 2??? we have moved on now, its page 5! upgrade your internet connection!!!
    By the way italian unis are quite good, as would be the french, german, spanish and so on. Uk universities are not just oxbridge and imperial and ucl..., but also the thames valley and uel. Put more consideration into your next post. Your welcome

    When in Rome, do what Romans do. Why should Britain bend over backwards? Yes in some instances, if it is reasonable, for example offering halal or kosher meat then yeh...but if it is something finding the British flag offensive, they can eff off. It is about finding a middle ground based on common sense.
    What has the BNP got to do with this?

    I always wondered why do Italian restaurants based in Britain do not have British flags yet happily display Italian flags?

    I'm not ignorant I take pride in my home country the only ignorant person is you, like the guy above said it's about finding a middle ground, I'm all for providing halal/kosher meat etc, but if someone comes to this country and demands that we don't show our flag and that it offends them then they can piss off back to their own country. I bet you think we should have sharia law here too because they are offended by our laws LOL
