Why can't the UK be more like America?

Update:

I mean over the positives not the negatives.

The food, shopping and TV experience seems so much better than the UK.

    Well, let’s start by population, UK has 67M, US has 320M. Land size, UK, 243K sq m/ 93 KM2. US 3,170M/ 8M K2. Not including Hawaii and Alaska. UK GPD 3T, US 30T (2020), rounded. It does not require a degree in economics, to answer your question. You can at least have the peace of mind that the UK is our number one ally. If some wanna Hitler nut wants to start another third conflict in Europe. It would last a week, no boat, or air threats would ever hit the mainland UK.

    HERE IS THE BEST SOLUTION TO OUR ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PROBLEM:

    1.  $10,000 FINE TO EMPLOYER FOR ANY ILLEGAL ALIEN WORKING FOR THEM, DOUBLING THE FINE EACH TIME THEY ARE GOT

    2.  MAKE ILLEGALS INELIGIBLE FOR ANY GOVERNMENT BENEFITS

    3.  ONE YEAR OF HARD LABOR FOR THE FIRST TIME CAUGHT ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY

    4.  5 YEARS HARD LABOR SECOND TIME CAUGHT ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY

    5.  THIRD TIME WE WILL JUST SHOOT YOU THAT WAY WE KNOW YOU WON'T BECOMING BACK THE FOURTH TIME

    Why would any country want to be more like America?  America is not what it once was.. the commie dems will see to it that it will never be great again.  The world laughs at us now!

    Why should we want to??

    Do you want to start paying £££ each month for the basic right to see a doctor or have hospital treatment?

    Do you want your neighbors to be toting guns?

    Do you want large amounts of food additives to be added to basic foodstuffs?

    Do you want the police to be aggressive and unapproachable?

    What about losing your six weeks paid holiday each year and replacing it with laws that don't require employers to provide any paid time off and who see offering 5 days paid holiday as a perk!

    Shall I go on?

    Guns, paying for medical treatment, mass immigration, obese people.

    WHY?

    Why would the UK aspire to be anything like the US?

  • 2 months ago

    Because that's really not something to aspire to.

    (See - healthcare, employment laws, gun control...)

    Why should it? Those folks seem to like their country as is.
