I'm English but working in Australia. To flog an old truism, life in Oz is more laid back. The people are friendlier and goodwill gestures are plentiful. It's also very boring, and that's not just down to the lifestyle. That it has no real identity or atmosphere, in a sense, makes it feel like just a place, not a country. I feel a bit claustrophobic here, like there is not enough going on to stimulate my imagination. England is a great environment to nurture the human soul. Think why England has sprung so much significant culture, artistically and scientifically. Of course it's my home so I'm biased, but I believe it to be a very special country indeed.
One improvement would be to ship out all the council estate type scum.
