Back from two weeks in N France and Belgium I note it is warmer here and spring more advanced like other things in England.

Shop opening hours.
Service culture.
Nanny state.
Surveillance by cameras.
A proper understanding of who won at Waterloo. All the souveniers there are of Nappy the loser.
Numbers of immigrants.

No so advanced here are,

Prices except for booze and tobacco but not food and fuel.
The natives ability to speak other languages.
Viewing football without Sky high prices on TV.
The strength of beer.
Roman Catholicism.
Health care.
