What do you guys like about the UK?

I guess I like the tv. But this country is too grey for me. Stupid parents should have opted for Australia

Yeah... our food is nice, our music scene is the best and the football is great as well! I guess all the different accents are interesting as well!

What is British food though?

The Sunday roast is lovely Fish & chips okay

But isn't the Indian takeaway the most popular food?

I can't comment about football though.

British Food in my eyes is stuff like all the different pies, Black Pudding, Fish & Chips and sunday dinners!!

Lol... everyone loves curries over here but I can't stand them to be honest!

And trust me the football is the best!!

Yes to both of those (esp. the football).

That's what I think about the UK... It's just so "grey". Dark, depressing, houses are too close together... I think we should go around painting all the houses pink and purple and lime green Sure the weather will be crap but I don't think the country will be as gloomy as it is now.

Exactly like Iceland

It's grey there too but at least they brighten things up like you suggest we do here.

I can't escape Britain though b/c I am tied down with a mortgage and a secure job.
