Which country, United States Or United Kingdom?

Question by Patriot: Which country, United States Or United Kingdom?
I’m not a citizen of either country but I just wanted to know that if I wanted to move in to one of these countries, which one will be better for living, well every country have their goods and bads.

There is too much to ask about but lets just talk about some main things.

So which country has better security, I’v heard people complain about the crime rates in US but UK also has some high crime rates too because of its strict self defense law which you can’t say anything to a criminal if they harm you, in this case if US, which states and city and if UK, which city?
Which country accepts refugees and has the highest possibilities of citizen acceptance.
Which country has less racist people against middle easterns, this might sound pathetic but really I wanna know?
And overall which country has the best opportunities for education, jobs and living.

Thanks in advance.

British people can be just as racist if not more than Americans.. But you will find this anywhere in the world except the middle east generally..

In the US you really won’t be looked at strangely for being middle eastern.. lots of people are naturally that skin color here, if your muslim there are lots of muslim towns such as Detroit, they have a large muslim population.

For the U.K your more limited.. London generally doesn’t have a huge muslim population but I would think it’s like american big cities and your color doesn’t matter.. ;3

So it’s your picked there both failing economically.. but the whole world is basically!
And each one has political battles.. but which country doesn’t :D!

Norwegian Tall Ship, S/S Statsraad Lehmkuhl – Dublin Docklands

Today (Friday 19th August) at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay the very impressive and beautiful Norwegian Tall Ship, S/S Statsraad Lehmkuhl, was open to the public so I took the opportunity to go onboard and take a few photographs using a Sony NEX-5 camera.

The purpose of the visit was to promote The The Tall Ships Races 2012 – Dublin event. As final host port for the 2012 Tall Ship Races, the event will see up to 100 Tall Ships sail into Dublin for a 4 day Festival and celebration, from Thursday the 23rd August to Sunday 26th August, 2012. Ships from as far away as Chile, Mexico, Argentina, USA and European and Baltic countries including Italy and Norway will sail to Dublin.

The Tall Ships’ Races are races for sail training "tall ships". The races are designed to encourage international friendship and training for young people in the art of sailing. The races are held annually in European waters and consists of two racing legs of several hundred nautical miles, and a "cruise in company" between the legs. Over fifty percent of the crew of every ship participating in the races must consist of young people.

The Statsraad Lehmkuhl is a three-masted barque rigged sail training vessel owned and operated by the Statsraad Lehmkuhl Foundation. It is based in Bergen, Norway and contracted out for various purposes, including serving as a school ship for the Royal Norwegian Navy.

It was built in 1914 as a school training ship for the German merchant marine under the name Grossherzog Friedrich August. After the First World War the ship was taken as a prize by the United Kingdom and in 1921 the ship was bought by former cabinet minister Kristoffer Lehmkuhl (hence the name, which means ‘Cabinet Minister Lehmkuhl’). With the exception of the Second World War, when she was captured by German troops and called Westwärts, the ship has belonged to Bergens Skoleskib until it was donated to the Foundation in 1978.

In 2000, it was chartered by the German Navy while their Gorch Fock was overhauled.

  1. I don’t know who you have been talking to, but they don’t know what they are talking about.

    People can defend themselves in the UK.
    In the US, you are more likely to be killed by gun related crimes than in the UK.
    Both accept refugees. Both have paths refugees to take for permanent residence and eventual citizenship.
    The US can and is one of the most racist places out there (I should know, I am American) My husband is British, and he endured all kinds of prejudice because he wasn’t “American”. Do you really think you would fair better?
    As for best over all for jobs, living and education….has to be UK hands down.

    Another myth:
    Denmark gives the most of its GDP (1.01%) to developing countries: Norway
    gives 0.91%: The Netherlands give 0.79% and so on until the end of the list, where
    the USA sits. Yes the USA ranks DEAD LAST in foreign aid at the pathetic 0.1% of
    its GDP, compared to the other 21 nations listed as developed nations. The idea that
    the US government is a heroic bunch that runs around the world helping the poor and
    the ddis-empoweredis not backed up by the evidence. We have one of the stingiest
    governments on Earth.

    Most Americans believe the US spends 24% of its budget on aid to poor countries:
    the actual amount is well under a quarter of 1%. Our country also ranks #5 on the
    asylum-seeker acceptance rates (#1 is Denmark and #2 is Canada)

    US= vacation/holiday time is 5 days unpaid after working an entire year.
    UK= vacation/holiday time is 5 weeks paid from day one.
    US= No real job contract.
    UK= job contract.

    Same make and model car in the UK will get 2-3 times better gas mileage as the same cars in the US.
    Food in US is a lot more expensive.
    Wages in the UK are a lot higher.
    Housing is most of the time cheaper in the UK.
    The value of the dollar keeps slipping further into the toilet.

    But hey, you make up your own mind.
