Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Fair enough. Copper solidarity isn't uniquely Canadian, but the mountie uniform is; which I guess was your point in the first place.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

If you want to channelize your discontentment stream into a new domain area, there is traction in the mindwave that our methodologies could be synchronized.

Yes, you and dboy were the worst offenders on this thread. It's very disappointing I must say.

He's wrong of course. It's only lower mainland BC that counts, the rest is either frozen wasteland or full of mosquitoes.

For the time being. Until I am needed elsewhere; a bit like the littlest hobo.

If the people on this forum are anything to go buy a collective return would lower the average IQ in the UK.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

You think your spending power in the UK is vanishing? Maybe it is, but that is not the EU's fault; sterling is still a currency in it's own right and the UK can control it's value to a certain...

Your focus on paintings and high art is a typical lawyerly obfuscation;). UK cultural output has enriched the lives of millions, all the way from the beatles to benny hill. The world also plays our...

I think Oinks description fits that quite nicely. Cancer victim with months to live, but somehow able to ride across Canada with no real health issues - yeah, right... yawn.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Oh come on AC. You are being churlish here and you know it. You asked for an example of what the UK gives to the world and you got one.

If you really want to know what the best thing the UK...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I don't have the stats, but I reckon there are more british films than canadian ones. How many canadian films can you list? (and I don't mean american ones made up here on the cheap)

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I don't know what your point is? It doesn't matter who owns it; most of the revenues generated from it stay in the UK regardless (taxation, wages, etc)

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Nope, 6th in manufacturing. The UK is the worlds 6th largest. Pharma and the arms industry are huge.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

AC wanted an example of what the UK has given to the world in the last 50 years. It wasn't meant to start a debate about the cultural void or paradise that is Canada;)

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Yet, the UK is 6th biggest manufacturer in the world. Several places above Canada in fact. Your view of the UK is false and is seen through the eyes of the media rather than based on facts.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I think it's very easy to argue the case that artistically the UK punches well above Canadas weight. Not just poncy art either, but films, music, general popular culture; in these the output of the...
