Top Ten Things That Make Britain Better Than America

The Top Ten
1 Sense of Humour

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

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

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

3 Better Comedies

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.

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

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

4 The People
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?

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!

8 Closer to Europe

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

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.

Okay, many wrong things here. First thing, The Bee Gees are Australian and NOT British. Second thing, AC/DC is an Australian band and NOT an American group.

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

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

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.

Not really. All you guys have is London. We have New York, LA, Chicago, Boston, etc.

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

14 Better Fashion

The fashion in Britain is no different than the fashion in America.

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!

16 Less Terrorism

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

Well, they are a smaller country, and the US is basically the same size as Europe, so yes the US has more terrorism

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

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

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

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
22 More Elegant

What's more elegant than having afternoon tea?

23 No Donald Trump

I'm American, and I can confidently say that our media sucks. 50% of the things you hear about Trump can be fact checked by Snopes as false, and the other 50% is a partially true story. Also it's important to note that Prime Minister Johnson has a lot more power than Trump. The US government doesn't have a lot of power.

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.
