If dental characteristics are lumped in with ugly then I'd agree. I dated a woman from Wigan that took real good care of her tooth.

I was just in London, and travel all around the world. The food & women there, are the finest on the planet. This twit obviously has no class or taste.

Well, at least their oddly gay-seeming costumed mascot king doesn't have jug handle ears, talk about eating feminine protection products or prattle on about Global Warming, unlike the English oddly gay-seeming costumed mascot would-be king.

So, there!

There are some beautiful British women, some British food is good (their beer is the best in the world, IMHO)and their dental programs are 2nd to all.

The best food is in New Orleans.

Charli Fritzner, women’s campaigns officer at the University’s student union, said: “If he views women as potential distractions in academia, I wonder how he views them in the workplace?"

If they f*** up his order at the drive-thru window as often as they f*** up mine, hopefully he'll view them as unemployed.

Yeh, the food is definitely gross. Except for Yorkshire Pudding. I especially like the glow-in-the-dark mashed peas/ s.

She’s ugly, sir.
What do you mean, ugly?
As in, ‘not attractive to men’, sir.
That’s rather a matter of opinion...
Oh no, she’s ugly, sir.

I don’t know about British women but I do enjoy the BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger. The one that has the jalapenos and cheddar cheese mixed into the meat. I could eat those for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A few pictures of women from UK aren't going to prove or disprove anything. To really access the situation you would need to travel to both countries and spend time there. I've been to UK and found the women about the same as eastern seaboard of US stopping at Washington DC. The women south of the Potomac get a lot better looking. So it is in UK. In some areas, the women were attractive, others not so much.

I haven't been to Scandinavian countries, but a friend of mine has been there on a number of occasions (Norway & Sweden) and he says the women ARE better looking than UK. But I don't trust this guy even though he's my friend.

Concurring bump. Galatoire's, steak bearnaise or steak marchand de vin, take your choice, then get back to us.

Or Arnaud's. Or Brennan's. Or Antoine's. Take your pick.

Vedi Napoli, e poi mori ..... but not until you've eaten in New Orleans.

I grew up on English cooking (mom's). The secret is combinations -- pub grub plus bitter or stout. Like Japanese tea ceremonies -- the tea by itself is no big deal, and the little cookies suck. Until you consume them together. That's the concept.

And Yorkshire pudding with good roast beef (as in, American corn-fed beef) is good eating no matter where you're from. Just be careful with how you make the gravy, that's the make or break.

The veg? Other than the roast new potatoes .... Ehhhhh...... they're for the nutrition.

"f**** order"

Yeah, what is it about BK and an inability to take correct orders? Every time we stop there (my wife likes the slop), they screw up the order. Not to mention the awful food.

P.S. As an interesting sidenote to this thread, my wife grew up in England and loves BK.

"food...gross"

Actually shepherds pie, cornish pasty, and even the lowly bangers and mash although not haute cuisine, are all pretty good meals. Of course, with plenty of ketchup.

How about some "steak, same-day". FRESH Angus on the grill. You gotta have a steak of your choice, the size of a toilet seat lid, at my place, before you give out first place.

Between 1989 and 2002 Burger King was owned by British companies.

The best, by far...they cook their burgers over real fire, not a hot plate, and they make their sandwich with the best of ingredients. I think the whopper junior for a buck is the best sandwich buy in the country.....I have begun to use Subway a little more lately, but I will reserve judgement on them a little while longer
