What do you think about England?

England - The British flag - Union Jack
February 9, 2009 5:43pm CST
Hi Everyone, I was wondering what people thought about England. We all have different views on countries and was wondering what people from other countries around the world thought of England. Even if you haven't been there and have only seen it in movies and documentaries. What is your opinion? What do think about when someone talks about England?

If you are talking about England why do you show the Union Jack which is a British flag. It even has "England" under it. Absolutely wrong. Now the world will think "England!, the people there don't even know there own flag". Very sad. Next time please talk about the United Kingdom or find a St George's cross.

Have just noticed that the Union Jack is from the Mylot list of interests. My apologies for criticising you. Have contacted Mylot to have this changed. Sorry again for my comments to you. Good luck. If any Scots or Irish read this please complain to Mylot about misuse of the Union Jack.

I would very much like to visit England. My niece's family live there right now. My grandmother's grandfather was from a small village and I can't remember the name right now. I know it was near a place called Lacey Green. This name sticks in my head because the family name was Lacey.

I like England, I have a very warm feeling about London, I like the spirit of this city! I haven't been to England's country side but I have seen it in movies, magazines and heard from people around, I think it is amazing place. I love British accent!

I am American but I was born and raised in England - lived through WW 2 and left to go to America to join my American husband in 1960. England since I lived here has gone to hell in a handbasket and with Gordon Brown as Prime Minister it is going to go even further into the abyss. I married my first love who is English last June and he lived and worked in England all his life. He served in the British army and has to sit by and see people that come here, don't work and draw more in benefits than he gets in pension. I am by no means racist but it is sad when you sit and watch the neighborhood you live in go from all white to anything but white. There is a school on the street above where my husbands apartment is. A lady we know stood and watched the kids coming ot of the school that walked past her apartment. There were 92 kids of various nationalities, all coloured and 3 white kids walked past her apartment - now that tells one something when this is in a neighborhood that used to be filled with English steelworkers and their families. Just around the corner from us is an area of fairly new houses that were built specifically for Somalis. Outside almost everyone of these houses is a fairly new or brand new car - and don't try telling me these people worked to get these - they sure didn't and you can see them out there on an almost daily basis washing and polishing their cars that they got courtesy of the British taxpayers. Another classic example is this - My husband had severe problems with his hips and needed them both replaced. He could barely walk and was put on a waiting list to have the surgery to replace them. He had been on the waiting list about a year when I was talking to a neighbor who is from Yemen. He told me he was going to Yemen because his elserly sister was having some serious health problems. Well he went and was gone almost a year. When he came back he brought his sister with him who could barely walk. Well guess what - courtesy of the NHS she got both her hips replaced - when she came ot of the hospital there was a nurse came every day to check her and a physical therapist to give her therapy. She recovered and off she went back to Yemen and I might add my husband was still on the waiting list and he waited another 11 months before getting anything done. I could go on and on - England - my former home has some beautiful countryside and a world of history but a lot of its citizens are leaving as fast as they can because they are treated by their government like second class citizens and they are sick and tired of it.

Most of my ancestors are either English or Irish, so I would have to say that I have to like England LOL

I have never been to England but I read about it and see it in the movies and on tv. I have to admire the British people for their courage and inventiveness. I also admire their sense of humor. Cheers!!
