  1. They also make tea better

  2. Your average Brit & Whovian October 7, 2016 @ 8:20 am

    here’s the biggest thing though, the UK literally invented and began the industrial revolution and without it the world would be completely different and far back in time. it would still be like the 16th century without it.

    • Top most powerful countries
      1. USA
      2. Russia
      3. China
      4. India
      5. France

      Lewys Smith actually even before the industrial revolution England still had the biggest empire in the world so I think the world would be very different with the industrial revolution

  3. For anyone about to complain: Union Jack is actually the correct name for the flag, people incorrectly complain that’s it’s supposed to be the “Union Flag” on land, but it’s never been established and the Royal Navy have publicly stated several times over the past 200 years, that the names are interchangeable.

    In fact it’s only called the union jack as that’s what people coined it, it doesn’t reall have an official name other than “the flag of the united kingdom”

    • Fire Evolution March 15, 2018 @ 7:08 pm

      Im British and never heard of this but THX FOR TELLING PEOPLE 😀

    • almost everything the British do and say has something to do with the sea and sailing.

    • Flying mint Human April 3, 2018 @ 3:33 pm

      Larry Bundy Jr Yea

    • Who calls it the union flag

    • correct name is union flag. its only a jack when its on royal navy ships. Its a flag that represents all the countries in the united kingdom as its a combination of all the countries flags in the union. the england flag is the red cross in the middle. the blue background and white x is scotland. Havnt worked out where the welsh and irish flags r though lol. but there in there somewhere. When i was in the army if we called it a union jack we got put on yankers for a week and told its flag not jack. But for some reason its now classed as racist to fly the England flag as some ppl find it offensive.

  4. I’m proud of England I love you UK!

  5. 🇬🇧 Proud to be British! 🇬🇧

    • Barbara Hallinan So what’s so bad about it then?

    • Pennywise The dancing clown March 28, 2018 @ 3:51 pm

    • Barbara Hallinan March 28, 2018 @ 4:08 pm

      pennywise.but pound foolish……..are you looking in the mirror now there is a real spa……………billions.shame on you………………

    • Pennywise The dancing clown March 28, 2018 @ 4:22 pm

      Barbara Hallinan A) can u fucking speak English? B) the British soldiers killed maybe a few million natives.
      EDIT: just checked and the total amount of natives killed (not directly killed but by compilations) was 29 million not a few billion

  6. we also have the NHS plus the safest roads in the world plus the chocolate bar, light bulb, television and telephone was all British inventions

    “Its impossible to say which country is the best in the world”
    British National Anthem plays

  8. Tbh, I think that police are better, my main point being as most police in America have an instinct to shoot.. but English police atleast try to calm you. and you don’t see many armed police in england

    • Oliver Schöneck USA

    • T1agg George as someone who lives in the US. Police in the UK are way better.

    • Forgotten Lawrence April 2, 2018 @ 5:44 pm

      Marshall Plays lmao…young teams

    • Flying mint Human April 3, 2018 @ 3:40 pm

      T1agg George yes

    • T1agg George well we do now more but they don’t use them unless a terrorist comes or a dangerous person. But yes American police not all do shoot people as soon as they have a gun or are doing something bad. In the Uk we calm them and then arrest them and if we have to we will shoot them and it’s rare to be shot in the uk. No hate to Americans I love them

  9. TrainzAreEpic! 2000 April 5, 2017 @ 8:40 am

    And the trains in the UK are kind of better

    • Kitty-May Murray March 27, 2018 @ 10:05 pm

      Qasim Mir the UK is in Europe

    • London undergound

    • Flying mint Human April 3, 2018 @ 3:38 pm

      TrainzAreEpic! 2000 yea

    • batduck does stuff April 8, 2018 @ 9:54 pm

      Yeah trains are great in the uk with
      All the strikes

    • some great trains in the UK. its not the trains fault when they run late. usualy its work being carried out on the line somwhere that causes the delays but its the train companies that get fined for running late. At the mo 1 company owns the tracks and stations and train companies just rent the track when they use it and the stations. It used to ber so much better hen weach train company built its own tracks and stations. Always on time, repairs done at night when no trains were running. Now its total chaos due to the rail network being nationilsed and run by the govt till it was privatised again. Loads of strikes when it was owned by the govt but now its private again very few strikes.

  11. Phoebe Clayton April 9, 2017 @ 12:03 pm

    We are also responsible for Harry Potter

    • ANONYMOUS SCOTLAND March 11, 2018 @ 9:34 pm

      Phoebe Clayton harry potter was made in scotland

    • Phoebe Clayton ok and what

    • That’s the best thing about living in the uk

    • Jerm2003/ There is a suggestion that the first powered flight took place outside Dundee in Scotland several months before the Wrights, it’s just that the guys that did it failed to invite the press or many witnesses for that matter. The worst thing about making definitive statements is that all too often they aren’t definitive!

  12. We did the office and the inbetweeners better than the Americans

  13. Deyolyn Robinson April 12, 2017 @ 6:10 pm

    Number 11: We don’t have Donald Trump as president.

    • Panzerkampfwagen V Panther A April 1, 2018 @ 2:14 pm

      Dont feel bad for me. I should be feeling bad for you to be honest

    • abandoned channel April 1, 2018 @ 7:24 pm

      Panzerkampfwagen V Panther A what I should not. Feel bad for you having a president who abuses people and bans countrys from coming to America? If you like trump your obviously a tortured soul and you dont think about others! So I should feel very very sad for you! On the other hand our president is kind and sweet! I hope trump burns in hell

    • abandoned channel April 1, 2018 @ 7:26 pm

      Panzerkampfwagen V Panther A also he wants to build a wall and start a war! Do you want to die because he will make that happen

    • Deyolyn Robinson honestly if most if the world thinks that TRUMP was a stupid decision for a president, then basically the majority of America is either RACIST ant follows TRUMP or didnt know what they were doing and just fell for his BS

    • Jamie O'Connor April 9, 2018 @ 11:11 pm

  14. Rachel From England April 24, 2017 @ 11:02 pm

    Glad to be British. Really we’re so lucky we were born in one of the world’s best countries

  15. Ashley Cecelia April 25, 2017 @ 3:19 pm

    i bet im the only american watching this video haha. i dont think that there is a “better”, just different. the uk and the us are different places all together

    • Ky 99 I haven’t seen all of them… All I’ve seen were kind of on the uglier side… I mean I haven’t seen a gorgeous or attractive UK girl yet =))) I agree about gun control in the US is lame… But the life is so bright and rich. UK seems poor to me, maybe I’m wrong… maybe I should go check it out =))

    • Ashley is in denial.

    • Connor Bretton March 10, 2018 @ 4:29 pm

      Ashley Cecelia a reasonable Human finally

    • Barbara Hallinan whats your problem with the uk you don’t show respect to others comments,
      And think of them as backward because of the british history, no country has a clean slate

    • BlueTaco Productions April 13, 2018 @ 3:37 am

      Both are nice

  16. 5:25 u do know Harry Potter is British, right?

    • One of the only books Americans found interesting… yet it is also boring…

    • ANONYMOUS SCOTLAND March 11, 2018 @ 9:36 pm

      Nugget 05 scottish

    • ANONYMOUS SCOTLAND March 11, 2018 @ 9:37 pm

      fangamergirl its scotlands

    • Scotland is part of the UK

    • ANONYMOUS SCOTLAND Harry Potter is British with British parents and JK Rowling was a British author, I don’t know where you got that it was Scottish but I image you are clearly mixing up the location of Hogwarts with the characters nationality, just because they go to school in Scotland does not make them Scottish. I don’t understand either why you felt like you needed to clarify even if it were true, both Britain and Scotland are apart of the Uk anyways, it’s a book set in the uk so it can be a book that belongs to the uk

  17. Little Google 56 April 29, 2017 @ 8:01 am

    I live in the UK!!!! like if you live in the UK

  18. Name Insert Required May 7, 2017 @ 7:07 am
