It's good to hear that you think that - thanks George.

The best you can do is offer your personal perspective, I think, providing there's a degree of truth behind it (and that you're willing to listen to whether people agree and why the do / don't).

And you're absolutely right about the UK. For such a geographically-small country, there's enormous diversity between different cities and regions. Generally, that's an asset, but there is a lot of debate in the UK at the moment about the inequalities that have risen out of regional differences. The North of England (Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle) and North Wales tend to lose out in most national projects and policies, despite conscious attempts to avoid that happening.

And I'm sure some of that holds true for the US as well.
