Way to go Canada in 3rd place, cool!
Not to demean the UK in any way, but how can they say the #1 choice is the 'World's favourite' when they only surveyed people in 35 countries? That's less than 20%.
that would mean the UK came in at #1 according to their survey, if someone else did a survey and included 50 countries the result may have been different, i'll live with the results this time though
Quote: The NBI also measured how respondents from other countries perceive people from other countries. UK citizens were considered to be the most polite, most boring and best educated. The French were seen as the rudest and Americans were viewed as the most ignorant and most ambitiousthat's a the interesting bit LOL
having lived in the states for 4 yrs i would say the americans are amongst the politest people i have met, certainly more so than Brits, i have to say they are certainly ambitious over here though, they pay an absolute fortune for education.
There are lovely people and tossers in every country and of every religion, colour etc.
And on every forum!
I cetainly wouldn't put UK top.
>they pay an absolute fortune for education
Those that can afford it do, and they have to. 1 in 10 americans live in poverty. Americans can be polite in a toffee apple way, all the rights words and none of the sentiment. Repeat the mantra ' have a nice day'
I can only assume that the respondents to the poll have never actually been to the UK.
Is it too late for me to vote for Iceland?
Not too late, at least not on EPZ!
Anyone else? Assuming you weren't allowed to vote for your own country, what country would you vote for?
Australia for me followed closely by Ireland, but even if I could vote for the UK I wouldn't!
should be no competition really it has to be Japan, polite people, low crime rates, and they're well into their photography.
Ahem - the Uk's not a nation, it's a political entity consisting of four nations
good point LOL
England would get my vote but then I'm not PC
Whats wrong with the UK being number 1, I think this is a good place to live stop knocking it.
My favorite place after the UK is Sweden the people are courteous, very fair minded, and once you get to know them, they have a strong sense of humour, it is just different from ours. The scenery is good too. I must sneak my camera with me next time and add an extra day or two to go explore more.
Then it would have to be Italy. The passion the joy of life, the need for style. My trips to Italy have been fabulous or disasters.
France, to be honest, is nowhere near as bad as many UK people make out. I have always had a good time there, they know how to conduct a good strong argument and how to be friends in the morning. Its done well, or , well does it matter. If you make an effort to fit in or understand them or talk the language then they can be so helpful and friendly. ( I was given honorary French Citizen status by a French customer following a heated meeting "We can now tell the difference between the Scottish and the English, we like the difference").
Germany has its charms, though I prefer how people are in the Bavarian regions, to the other regions. And where else can you have a different bear for every time of the day?
America, tricky, its the only place I have been to and could not see myself being happy. I know quite a few Americans, and I cannot say it because I do not like some of the people I have met, I just do not like the way they live. Sorry
And where else can you have a different bear for every time of the day?
Erm, dunno you got me...peru? the rockies?
