Just like England...
Regardless of the pros and cons, the world would be a very boring place but at least the weather would be a topic of conversation wherever you went.
Yes weather, if you could guarantee the weather then I would say a lot would stay at home. Look at the americans don't they say 80% haven't got a passport, they have the weather in their country.
Further to pldouglas comment, Jackie and meself have commented what a miserable summer we have had, and how sorry we have felt for people holidaying in the UK. Here in Surrey it has been pretty miserable, the odd hot day but nothing consistent. If we had better weather, the Uk would be wonderful for holidays. I don't wish to disparage pld's comment on the weather here, i ride a motorbike every day and perhaps i have a more jaundiced view.
As to other countries becoming Anglicised, i feel we are becoming more Americanised, all things evolve, ever thus.
