America is great but England is the greatest.

I give you Shakespeare, I give you Kings, I give you history, I give you Castles and Palaces, I give tradition, I give you democracy, I give you beautiful churches, I give you Barcays and HSBC, Vodafone and Marks and Spencers, I give you Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, I give you Football, Cricket and Rugby. I give you Chaucer, Brown, Trollope,Wordsworth, Keats, Wellington and Nelson. I give you Tea, manners, politeness, gentlemen, Stonehenge, I give you Michael Bisping, the Queen and Monty Python.

Well anyway I am a sentimentalist and so everything in the past was better and modern society is going down the pan.

But I'll leave you with two quotes

Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
Samuel Johnson

To be born English is to win the lottery of life? Cecil Rhodes

Can't argue with that!
