People Are Sharing What The English Do Better Than Americans, And There Are No Lies Detected
"Leaving religion out of politics."
Here in the good old US of A, we're pretty much raised to believe this is the greatest country in the world.
And there were so many amazing responses! Here are some of the top-voted answers:
Food And Drinks:
Law & Order:
11. "Minimum 5.6 weeks of paid holiday a year. I was shocked when I watched the US version of The Office recently, and Pam says she gets 10 days. No wonder Americans never seem to leave the country."
"Quite literally moved from the US to the UK with this being a major reason."
"That's if you work full time in the US. Work part time, and you never get vacation time or holidays, only sick days you're not expected to take. Many companies will only hire part-time because then they don't have to provide their employees with health benefits either. Anything to cut costs, even to the detriment of the company and staff."
14. "Democracy. As a British American dual national, I would say this is the most important thing, but it's overlooked. British people take it for granted, and Americans often assume they are the beacon of democracy."
"But the UK has an independent electoral commission, fairly drawn district/constituency boundaries, multiple political parties (that all respect the results of elections), high turnout rates, no voting lines, and campaign spending limits, meaning everyone can compete. They even have a speaker in parliament that is genuinely independent and gives fair parliamentary time to every side."
16. "Gun control."
"It's pretty hard to get a gun license in the UK. Takes 6 months or so, various police checks, a medical history check, and a mental well-being check. You need to have a secure safe and ammo box that's also checked by the police, and you need to actively hold a license to a gun club, otherwise your weapons are taken."
