Well of course your characterisation of the UK where I live is ludicrous. Currently we are on course (IMF and others forecasts, no ours) to be by far the fastest growing economy in the G8, far outstripping you and Germany even. Inflation is record low, wages have not increased over inflation and we have had a year of month on month unemployment dropping (back to pre 2008 levels). Oh and our Corporation Tax is 20%, 19% LOWER than yours, hence companies are flocking here. And we continue cutting public spending. You cannot say any of the above for yourselves, so I would put your own house in order and kick out your socialist President before you criticize ours.
Well whilst as a Brit I'm obviously loathe to ever defend the French, and can I also say we are happy for the socialists in France as they are driving huge numbers of their businesses to come to the UK. BUT I don't think a country that shuts down its government, acting like children, where decent people are sent home and not paid all in the name of political expediency should be lecturing anyone. I think your senate needs to grow up a bit first.
Yes, but the difference is mentally ill people cannot get hold of guns and kill scores of innocent men, women and children in countries, like mine, who have none.
A latest massacre in Chicago to add to all the others, and still you can't make the causal link between everyone having guns and shootings, and not having guns and shootings. And before the usual onslaught of ugly nastiness at my country, think on this; how many mass gun massacres have we had in the last five years when we don't have guns?
