The UK also has great history, culture and isn't just one big car park [yes really!]
Does it all have to be bad?

Youths pretending to be LA gangsters, when if they were placed in a proper tough city they'd crap their pants. It proper cheers me up watching Kiwi hip hop music videos, they're embarrassing.

Terrible Chinese motorists with shocking personal habits.

Pacific islanders that get angry pissed on a can of shandy bass.

Slow trains with doors that take 15 seconds to open.

Still it beats Chavs, litters and the government sponsored underclass.

No not me, was just reading this story in the http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=10763114 and it always strikes me as so American to call it a 'home invasion'.

Just the description / words I meant, something people don't say in the UK as far as I know.

No they don't. Interesting. Is it called breaking & entering ? Doesn't seem enough somehow.
