Default For those KidPubbers who AREN'T from the US...

I don't know about you guys, but I always wanted to get a little hot and heavy over politics and the like on KidPub, but of coyrse, I'm not from America so there was never a thread on WB to do so. Well, here it is. Anyone out there from, I don'tb know, Finland or Australia, or England, or whatever, you can vent your random political wonderings and that here. Anyone from the US can join as well, of course. Whatever you like.

I live in Britain, but I get super defensive for no reason when anyone mentions China. Which is a lot, seeing as basically every copy of the Metro I read in the last year has an article criticizing us.

I live in Britain too. ^-^ I've been to London so many times because I have loads of family there. It's like every holiday (half-term, Christmas, summer etc) we visit a lot, of just occasionally on the weekend (:

I live in London, and I really don't think that it's all that great. Congestion charges are sucky.

It's fun, until you turn 17 and have to pay full rates. Then you can't really mess around. I take the tube to school, and the bus home. Most tube and train stations are fine, but some of them are constantly stuffy and smelly and dirty. And the tube drivers kept striking a while back. Listen to this for us Londoners' thoughts on the strikes. (Warning, much swearing.)

I'm glad I don't live in the US - too many huge spiders there. O_e Luckily in Britain most of them are dinky, but I've seen huge ones here too; like one the size of my palm. O_O

Nah, there aren't really spiders here. Trust me, I LIVE there.
You're probably thinking of the South West, which is a small part of the country. I've never seen a spider the size of my palm that wasn't a pet tarantula.
I kind of wish I didn't live in the US. People automatically dislike you when you say you're American.

In Hong Kong, black is the colour for anti-National-Educationers.
I probably want to live in the US for a while. Or the UK. I don't know, I've always loved Europe.
