Oh this is so true, I miss the tea drinking when I'm away! Nothing beats a good cuppa. Its such a british thing, its a social thing- when some kind of bad crisis happens "I'd better put the kettle on" . If something good happens, "that's great, who wants a brew?". And there's nothing better after all that binge drinking than a good cup of tea.

I'm surprised no one thought to offer Sophia a straight swap; their home for hers! May be not; with all the drinking and drugs, we'd never afford the medical bills when our livers fail, lungs clog up, arteries collapse, gangrene sets in; the list is endless. A good, medicinal cuppa could well ward that off though,I suppose. May be we should all seek out more therapies to help us realise why we're a nation of binge-drinking, fighting, sex maniacs.

As for having to tell an American who's considering moving here why England is so great? ummmm. It's your choice to move where you want to move - why should we sell our country to you, I wonder (or any one else); especially now that we have plenty of contenders for the jobs that, apparently, the rest of us don't want to do.

At least we can say what we like though; make fun of ourselves; the majority seem aware of our country's down falls; dress how we want; visit such beautiful places (the UK IS BEAUTIFUL, even if it rains a lot) and we do have a pretty good sense of humour. I think.

I'm a Boston native, and hope to move to England as well- Ive just always loved British history, cutlure and the people- Im just bored by America- 38 years of living in America is enough- Every time I've been to England i just felt at home- its a great place...

Quoting tea mangle

Now I'm an american living in the states (pretty much sick of all the obesity) and thinking about moving to England, but tell me...why should I move to England? What is it that makes England such a great place?

Obesity??? You'll find overweight people everywhere- from the US, to the UK to Germany- If you judge a persons' value based in their wastelines, you're not going to make many friends...

Good on you mate, I love England too, and with every country in the world, it has its problems, but i seriously think the good sides out-weigh the bad. I mean come one, you don't get a pubs and a pub culture anywhere else in the world! and whoever said we have bad music really needs to do some history on music.
