As for the Dutch, I think I'm freeer and happier here than I ever was in the UK. The population is one third that of England yet they don't have anywhere near the level of violence and other nastiness here and please, no reference to Coffee Shops.
By my calculations, the percentage of English people murdered per year is 0.00114%, and the percentage of people murdered in the Netherlands is 0.00106%.
There's no great difference there.
The Dutch also appear to have far more problems with the assimilation of ''outsiders'', with radical far-right parties gaining large footholds in the country, whereas similar parties in the UK are laughed out of the room.

But then, I didn't flaunt planning reg's then whine to the Daily Fail when I am caught out.
This is the kind of silly nonsense to expect nowadays from our Lefty-run councils
told a family of a young boy that he must stop flying a skull and crossbones flag in his back garden when he plays pirates because "it breaches advertising laws."
councils nowadsays are more concerrneed with telling na chip snhop to not fly a Union Flag
Next time you can't fit your rubbish into your wheelie bin because the council has decided that only fortnightly collections will suffice
The chippy owners didn't flaunt planning regulations
Freckleton Parish Council APPROVED the planning application. But then the loons at Fylde Borough Council said the chippy can't have that flag up for no other reason than it has "too many angles, triangles and colour"
However, I suspect that the REAL reason that Fylde Borough Council want them to take the flag down is because the loony Lefties at the council are worried that it might "offend ethnic minorities."
Those jobsworths should let the chippy fly the flag
