[Londonland] Reasons Canada Is Better Than Londonland

Posted by Lex Fear on March 4, 2007

Actually, there is a bunch of reasons and BarrenAlbion has thoughtfully laid them all out in her post: For the love of God, anything but SAHM/working moms

Here are some qoutes taken completely out of context, since BA is remarking from a “citizen of the world” perspective on appreciating differences. I simply consider it 2nd world standards.

“…a cost of living which is vastly better than that of the UK.”

“Uh, gee. A two bed flat in a nice part of a mostly shit city or a five bed, five bath house with a big yard? It’s a hard decision to make.”

“if you go to the Post Office to get a stamp, they won’t take the letter you are buying the stamp for. Even though you are at the counter and paying for the stamp, you have to take the letter and put it in a post box which can usually be found outside the Post Office itself.”

Note that this happens only in the country of London and not the country of England, where I’m from.

“Look at us here in provincial England with our lilliputian appliances. Aren’t we quaint?”

“We could do without a social care system which rewards you for having three kids by the time you’re 19, or one which pays people more than my salary for being unemployed. I hate how the country seems overrun by a bunch of loutish, drunken idiots, even if you live (or think you live) in a relatively nice place.”

“Never in the US was I accosted by a group of 8 year olds asking me for money so they could go buy cigarettes, nor had I ever witnessed a woman being beaten up by a man on the street in clear view of dozens of pedestrians…”

“If I can raise P. in an environment where she doesn’t have to see men pissing in the streets, I’d prefer to do so.”
