The headline should read "greatest country on earth to get away from" I now live in Denmark
10's of millions of American's are just as deluded about their country. It's called patriotism and it usually blinds people to reality.
I would have though the meaning was obvious. Even in a country like America that has some of the worst social problems of any modern, developed nation people will claim it's the best country in the world. They say this for two reasons. One because they are ignorant of what life can be like and because of patriotism which blinds them to the problems which plague their society.
Not everyone in America is a fat idiot, despite what you read on the internet Hirafu.
I know, unlike most of you Americans I've actually travelled throughout much of the world including to your country.
That was so funny I almost peed my pants . Britain is pathetic
No more Muse,Coldplay or Shakespeare for you then..
I didn't know they ran the country ... That would be amazing . But seriously Britain is shocking
yeah, that's because they don't have oh-bama
Don't understand why people take those comments seriously.
Has never been outside of Britain.
I suspect it would be pretty great if you were sat on a multi-million £££ fortune and giving yourself tax cuts every April...
Within the next 2 years this country will enter a state of social chaos. Riots and unrest on a new, unseen scale. Demonstrations making the poll tax demos look like slightly crowded picnics and hardship amongst the poorest not seen since the time of Dickens. Whatever positive elements Britain has will sink below a wave of troubles. Heed my words.
*Listens for a moment, labels him as a crazy and continues walking* ^_^
dismiss it out of hand Silence for personal reasons is my guess, but all indications, economically, both domestic and global, increasing and chronic mass unemployment predictions and new draconian benefits reforms, declines in housing and public health standards strongly suggest a very grim short term future.
Australia. The greatest country under Earth.
Another deluded bogan
A Logan Bogan at that lol
and Crocodile Dundee lol.
There's a few more recent than them though.
Only a few.
its the America..dont belong to either
Top 5 that start with "Great".
I think if someone the British public had less hostility towards had made that speech they'd have probably got a standing ovation..Camerons just blatently trying to ride the wave of national pride thats been caused by our hosting of The Olympic Games..This was a misjudgement because a)Thats in the past,we've all got back to mundane reality now,and b)Most people would like to see him lose his balance,fall in and drown..
