BRITAIN ONLY TWELTH IN WORLD LIFESTYLE LEAGUE


Britain has failed to make it into the top ten of a list of the world's most successful countries, according to a global survey of wealth and happiness.
The UK was placed 12th in a 'prosperity index' of 104 nations covering 90 per cent of the world's population, behind countries including the U.S., New Zealand and Australia.
Mediocre scores for education, health, domestic security and levels of personal freedom are dragging down our performance, researchers say.
Oh and look MR MURPHY, two of the countries in the axis of prosperity NORWAY and IRELAND are above us. Still never mind we beat FUCKING ICELAND!

Looks good enough to me, 6 of the top 12 places occupied by the Anglosphere ( alright, Britosphere ) and those 'above' us are marvelous little European countries each with their own reasons for being lovely places to live.
In any case many of the criteria in those surveys are about things I don't give a fuck about like how many power windmills they have or cycle lanes, rural internet access and full implimentation of Human Rights law.

Where's Indonesia ? said...

That's strange. No Pakistan or India or Bangladesh or any muslim country. Can't be right. Stinks of racism to me.

INCOMING!!!!!!! said...

DL these Poles, poles or is it polls, could be polis I hope that's Indonesian enough, ever wondered why the polis are actually called polis there?, never catch the zetgeist do they.

I know that UK plc is the top spot for getting a farrier to forge a decent bit of S&M iron mongery as feaured in many a good movie hailing from Hertfordshire.

Banned. The main reason I stuck this up was to show that when the SNP talked about an arc of prosperity, Norway, Iceland and Ireland it was ridiculed by Labour after the crash, but indeed these countries are still above us. One of the criteria apart from wealth is the amount of personal freedom, i.e. no state interference in ordinary peoples's lives and that does concern me.

Where's Indonesia. I don't think you can say that your average punter in muslimland can be happy, starving and with no possessions apart from a wife and eight kids, living in a corrugated iron house in some suburb of Mumbai. No, all in all thre towelhead's lot is not a nappy one!

Incoming!!!!! So that's where it's going on, Hertfordshire. You would never think it in the shires, but then again they're into horses and sweating beasts and giving them a few lashes of the bull whip, as they stand waiting for it, their eyes pleading for a few strokes across their glistening buttocks, the juices flowi....Fuck mke I was getting carried away there!

I agree! How can these countries whose people have done so much to enrich UK society not be right up there at the top? Surely shome mishtake!

Ah Scunnert. Where would we be without a chicken bhoona or spending 2 hours on a phone to an indian call centre because they can't understand a Scots accent. Actually stricly speaking India is not a muslim country, so consequently they are not trained by society to fuck the white man in the same way as our Pakistani cousins.
