the daily politics
fish and chips
and believe it or not The Sun. Just the headlines are a nice gauge of what the UK is thinking, even if it is mega knee jerk and totally bigotted. But I'd still miss it. I need to work my moral compass.
and he says the thing he misses the most in the normal British pub. You know, floral carpets, beige wallpaper, dark wood furniture etc.
though that may be a world wide phenomenon.
I believe they're well represented in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States of America though too.
Say what you will but he was fantastic at the state of London debate last night.
I would also miss
history. We have amazing history and buildings
live music, we have/had some of the best bands in the world
Sainsburys White Chocolate Cookies.
Although all White Chocolate is not a bad idea..
I live in Engerland just now and I miss them bitterly. I don't imagine the added distance of being actually outside the UK would ease the pain.
after being told your one remaining limb has cancer.
Oxford United FC
Angst-ridden mophead boys with guitars
Having prejudices in common with everyone else
Dry Northwestern humour
This is based on my experience living in Asia tho, moving somewhere a bit closer to home likesay Scandanavia, I reckon I could obtain nearly all the above pretty easily tbh.
a decent pie
You do actually get 95% of those outside of England, the one thing i don't miss Little Englanders like all you miserable cunts
banging on about how good America is and how it has the best cheese/sports/beers/music in the world.

THE UK NOT JUST ENGLAND
Although there must be something. Thanks.
would love to see portugal fuck off, greasy bastards
Fantastic interruption of thread. Proper lolz!
nowt else really.
Was so relieved to get back from Marbella the other day.
I can only take mouth-breathing simpleton, mannerless idiots for a few days. Even the ones in positions of authority. Shouting at you at 500mph repeatedly despite your responses of "I do not speak Spanish".
Ridiculous road system too. You pull onto a 70mph motorway from a stationery position. Totally illogical and ridiculously unsafe.
We've got the best general infrastructure in the world, and you don't appreciate it until you go to one of these stupid countries.
Poor dental hygeine
A stifling attitude towards sex
1) A bar

trains which can't run due to the wrong sort of leaves on the line.

My sister and nephews.
orange squash (is it just me or is britain the only country where squash is widespread? my american friend didn't know what it was! why does nowhere else have squash?)
efforts which you had to melt in a bowl and mix with water at home before pouring the resulting liquid back into a plastic bottle. It was a right hassle!
Oh, they have Kool Aid in North America too, but it's not great.
Robinson's could clean up out there.
but mostly, being able to understand what people are saying when they talk to me. it's an unbearable sadness.
sajt, pronounced like an irishman says shite.
kurva means whore but people say it instead of 'very' if they want to be rude. it's whoreishly hot today!
the drinking water
Cheshire cats, so "chookie" (no consensus found as to how you spell this)
though on the last point, I think half arsed (or assed for international brother and sisters) is a global phenomena
