Top Ten Things That Make Britain Better Than America

The Top Ten

1 Sense of Humour

Britain has a strong belief in this and it has been the most recent issue in its world

- Predictive text

Dry, witty, intelligent, sarcastic, clever, subtle. Yes British SOH is better!

I'm just not me without my sarcasm-it (along with my passport) makes me British

Americans don't have a sense of humor like the British do

2 The History

Really!? Do Brits not remember the British Empire and all the crimes it committed against humanity? I'll just name a few of the atrocities:
The Boer Concentration Camps
The Amritsar Massacre
The Indian Famine
The Bengal Famine
The Irish Famine
The Kenyan Concentration Camps

The British also brought slavery to America, so if any African Americans want reparations, talk to Boris Johnson

We went around the world invading countries and claiming them for are selves, stealing there resources, raising taxes and basically started slavery before America did.
How is are history better?

The thing is, that the real history of America is British history (unless you are a descendant of a native)

I agree, Britains had kings and queens, romans Saxons the lot.But whereas in america its mostly presidents and stuff and that didn't happen for ages so I agreeing with britain

3 Better Comedies

Sadly I can only vote for 1 option so I voted for this.

USA's funny comedies consists of: Modern family, Friends, The simpsons and Fresh Prince of bel air, (all the rest are not funny at all)

UK's funny comedies consists of: Blackadder, One foot in the grave, Bottom, Mr Bean, Psychoville, League of gentlemen, The thin blue line, I'm Alan Partridge, The Office (UK), The Vicar of Dibley, Fawlty Towers, Allo Allo, Benidorm, Dad's army, Dinnerladies, Pheonix Nights, The Wrong Mans, Man Down, The young ones, Miranda, The Royle Family, Keeping up appearances and many more.

We also ave a better accents than the americans (especially Yorkshire, Scouse, Cornwall and Welsh accents) And lets face it Christopher Lee and Ian McKellin have way cooler voices than Morgan Freeman and Lawrence Fishbourne

The UK flag is the best in the world

York, Chester, London, Norwich Manchester and Cardiff are all better cities than any in the US.

In the north of england we ...more

Despite the fact that my favourite comedy is The Big Bang Theory (American), and that the US also have Frasier and Friends, Britain has Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, Only Fools and Horses, Mr. Bean, Black Books, Dad's Army and The Good Life, all of which are just brilliant. And Red Dwarf and Blackadder are second to The Big Bang Theory.

I, as a Brit, Disagree with this- I highly commend 'Friends' as one of my favourite T.V. shows, whilst all British comedies are really not that funny. Although the fake laughing in certain shows really wind me up.

With comedies like The IT Crowd, One Foot in The Grave, Blackadder and oh so many others, how can one disagree?

4 The People

Well I am English so must vote for this option =)

5 No Capital Punishment

If someone killed 20 people, they don't deserve to live. If it was your family member you would think differently

It's disgusting and wrong to take a life and if we kill a murderer then aren't we just as bad?

Briitain used to have a Capital Punishment called Hanging

This is very stupid

Just because you disagree with this item does not mean that it is stupid. An over-confident 13-year-old dimwit who doesn't know enough about capital punishment's effects should not be making such a comment. I bet you're the type of idiot who blindly listens to dimwitted politicians and their lies about this practice's effects. Not every person on the planet will support capital punishment, and those who find something wrong with it are not automatically "stupid". And please do some research. This practice never works in preventing crime because states in America without it actually have lower crime rates. It also costs taxpayers more to put someone to death because of the cost of all the trials the defendant has to go through. If you are too arrogant to consider the facts I just gave you, then look them up. The Internet is full of websites with these facts. Calling someone else stupid when you are the one who refuses to provide good reasons as to why you think the item added is bad ...more

6 More Modest
7 Tea

I love tea! But why do make it cold? If our tea's cold we'd go and make another one!

We have the BEST tea

I hate tea.

8 Closer to Europe

Closer to Europe? Britain is in Europe.

We are in Europe!

Murica is the best all the way...

And now we are leaving the EU.

9 Better Accents

The problem with actually being 'posh' (although middle class is actually what I prefer to call it) Is that people always judge what I'm like by my voice (and if they don't they start judging me as soon as they find out I go to a private school)

Who said anything about being posh? The actual accent is better on the ears (but a well-spoken London accent is always best).

Big stereotype behind this. Hardly anyone in Britain has a posh accent, like most people think.

I love these people who has british or australian accent I wish I had that accent too

10 Better Bands

Beatles
Led Zeppelin
Black Sabbath
Rolling Stones
Queen
Iron Maiden

And so many more. let's see how many good American bands there are.

Metallica
Guns N Roses
Nirvana
AC/DC
Aerosmith

Pretty much it. There are some good bands like Green Day, Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Skillet, etc. , but these are the only great ones.

Which country brought Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Jessica Simpson, Jonas Brothers, et al to the world. Hint, it's NOT Britain! On another note, Mr Blobby is like Mozart compared to these people.

The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Genesis, Fleetwood Mac, Bee Gees, The Who, Dire Straits, Muse, Kasabian, Oasis etc.

The Bee Gees where born in the Isle of Man actually ever heard of that country? Then they moved to Australia.

The Contenders

11 More Polite

This I agree with, I went to America and was shocked by how few people said 'excuse me' or 'pardon me' or 'Sorry' or 'Thank you', no one showed any sign of gratitude for something I had gone out of my way to do for them.

This is should be at first, American does not have politeness as Britain. I'm from east and really esteemed to politeness

Brits and Japanese are the most gentle and polite people that I have met. I love them.

I know most americans are polite. But some of them are rude.

12 More Intelligent

I find it simply hilarious how certain cocky British people class themselves as both 'more modest' than Americans but then continue to add that they think they are 'more intelligent' I'm English and this has got to be the most stereotypical rubbish I have ever read!

Although it's true that we have a lot of stupid rednecks who are easily taken advantage of dishonest politicians in the United States, I don't think it's fair to label all of us as stupid. We still have some smart people here.

I am an intelligent American with an I.Q. around 113 & we are not all dumb. Sure, the Brits might have an I.Q. average of 100 & us 98, but we are not all southern, redneck idiots. Come to the north, where I am & find much more normal, intelligent people

West Mids, eh? That explains a lot. Your lot are still better than the Yanks...

13 Better Cities

London and New York BOTH suck royally, so that's a wash.
After that, Miami Beach, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, Nashville, there is nothing remotely like them in the UK.
The US does have a distinct shortage of moldy, deteriorating castle estates.

Most U.S. Cities are better than British cities. Have you noticed that people are naming various American cities, but just keep naming London and over and over as the superiors Brit city? That's becuase American cities are more welll known.

Britain doesn't have a city like Honolulu (Hawaii), but then Britain has a working public transportation in a huge majority of the cities.

Miami, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Portand, New Your, Orlando, San Fransisco, Denver, Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Detroit, and Chicago.

Britain- Glasgow, Cardiff, London, Liverpool, Birmingham.

Hmmm...

There is a difference between having MORE cities and having BETTER cities.

14 Better Fashion

WE ARE THE MODS!

ADIDAS

15 Less Terrorism

Plus less gun crime and knife because we allowed neither. We're just 100x safer..

So what's happening in London?

Infact there is more

True

16 Better Schools

I started pissing myself with laughter when I read 'Americans have better schools and there summer holiday is way long! '... 'There' means 'There is' or 'over there'. This person should've said ' Americans have better schools and THEIR summer holiday is very long' (although due to his Grammar he slightly contradicts himself! )

Britain has the 6th best education system in the world, beating America!

Americans have better schools and there summer holiday is way long!

America is better, because in are schools we have to wear uniform

17 Better at Sex

I blame the psychotic need American parents feel to willingly butcher their boys via circumcision. Do you have ANY idea how much of the sensitivity is given up because of that loss? Or how much of the sexual experience is lost for the woman during sex? No... of course you don't. All you have is that scarred, mutilated member that can't even properly self lubricate and is partially desensitised. No parent who actually loves their child would allow said child to be MUTILATED in such a manner. That's why the best sex an American woman has, is with an uncircumcised man (unless she's not inclined towards male sexual partnership. To which I say; each to their own, respectfully). You guys should thank John Harvey Kellogg for pushing circumcision to prevent masturbation, thus keeping pious people "on the right path, the path to the Lord! ". Idiots still butcher their kids even now when there's NO GOOD REASON FOR IT! (since the invention of bathing, hygiene isn't even an argument).

No French kissing thou! Nasty teeth

Have you ever heard of France

18 The Royal Family

The only thing we really like about the royals our the babies because there so cute

It was once better leaders till the government came. Either Tory or Labour.

We should have done what the French did with royal family

Why is there still a royal family?

19 The British Flag

I love the British flag and the Australian flag. Have the British flag as my mobile wallpaper and I'm not even British!

I love the Union Jack, though there are plenty of other great flags out there I think it has to be one of the best.

The Union flag is the best in the world and definitely the best looking.

What's to love about the America flag? All it is is a few stripes and stars!

20 No Crackpot Christian Fundamentalists

Like what smart, rational person would admire Joel Osteen, Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, or Fred Phelps?

21 More Elegant

You do realise people only do this kinda thing rather if there rich or having a birthday?

No one actually does that. Only if your going out somewhere posh

What's more elegant than having afternoon tea?

22 No Donald Trump Lovers

Milo yiannopouos and Paul Joseph Watson are trump supporters

Lol sooo true

23 Sadiq Khan

Worst London mayor (not cause of his skin colour liberals, so don’t call me racist)

24 The Military

Did we not kick your ass in the Revolutionary War? Also, literally the only thing better about the UK military is the SAS and that's it

If we have such a good military then why did we need America to help us win the war?

The military is so strong in Britain but the US has a better one.

American soldiers come to be trained by the British S.A. S

25 Less Homophobia

Homophobia can happen in every country including UK not just USA

This one totally not true

I don’t hate gay people, i’m Just bored, I don’t care if you take it up the ass or not, I just wanna talk.
