Considering the size of my 5 year old, I dread to think what he'd be like if the UK hadn't been a complete basket case...There seems to be an unrelenting stream of misery, bad news and other negative indicators coming from the UK. I saw a graph today that showed the average height of 5 year olds had decreased between 1990 and 2020 for example.
Now, it's entertaining to watch the various misadventures of the Tory party, but, surely there must be some positive things happening over there too?
There is plenty positive happening, it isn't a complete shitshow for many, especially if financially you're doing ok. It's just that the overall management of the country is on par with a tribe of monkeys having a shit flinging competition.
The other thing to remember is that it has been a wealthy country for a long time. It has enormous investment in the built environment, lots of clusters of world class capabilities (despite the best efforts of the Tories) and a pretty diverse economy.
I'm fairly confident that with half decent leadership, it'll do pretty well.
