Unfortunately, since you don't currently live in the UK, you won't be able to find the answers to these questions. You could try the internet - but that's not valid apparently since you don't live...

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

Well there are water shortages in the UK and there are going to be more - especially in the south-east with its high population density and relatively low rainfall. It's not just a question of...

I don't "ignore" the nice parts of the UK. There are some beautiful parts of the UK. Whether Canada is a better place to live or not depends on many factors that will be viewed differently by...

Absolutely. Overcrowding does not belong to the UK. For example, I have said many times that Toronto's transit system has not kept pace with the city's growth. An obvious example is the rail...

If you actually go back and read the thread, population density came up as part of a discussion about overcrowding. Not that it...
