Top Ten Things That Make Britain Better Than America

The Top Ten
1 Sense of Humour

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

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

The original Office. Mr Bean. Boris Johnson.

2 The History

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

Obviously British history is better


All Americans had was presidents and cowboys. We had saxons, tudors, Stuart’s, Georgian, pirates, Vikings and Victorians

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.

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

Blackadder compared to The Big Bang Theory.

4 The People

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

5 No Capital Punishment

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

Yes yes

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

8 Closer to Europe

Not a good reason

We are in Europe!

9 Better Accents

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

I have a crush on a British boy because I like his accent

10 Better Bands

Led Zeppelin
Black Sabbath
Rolling Stones
Iron Maiden

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

Guns N Roses

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

American music is good, but British music is better - everyone else has already covered the bands/artists.

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 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

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.

It feels the same.


13 Better Cities

I am American And I Really want to move from Pennsylvania to London. I Like Pennsylvania and America, but I Like London more. I Never Been there before.

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

Well most cities are the best, you don't want to go to Aberdeen or Edinburgh

I am American, but I think that London is better than any city in the USA.

14 Better Fashion
15 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!

We'll it would be MUCH BETTER if michell gove was replaced

16 Less Terrorism

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

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

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.

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 No Donald Trump Lovers

Lol sooo true

22 More Elegant

What's more elegant than having afternoon tea?

23 Free Health Care

Tell me about your bills Americans

Our health care is free

24 Not Oblivious to the Rest of the World

Americans are so oblivious to the rest of the world and 9/10 people in the UK can give at least a general location for some states in America and knowledge about the rest of the world other than the middle east where the news show everyday for some reason or another so Americans have to know about it

25 No Donald Trump

I am so glad I'm British so I don't have to deal with Trump and his racist, sexist remarks!

Yeah we have Theresa May.
