I don't really have the energy to read a wide enough range of sources to make an informed decision so I was hoping we could pool our opinions and make a relatively fair assessment of what Britain is really like today.

The mail reckons it's a police state asylum free for all with gun epidemics, health epidemics and generally we're all going to die of something yesterday.

I don't believe it's that bad by any means but that's basically because I think the Mail is a spinning lying sack of horseshit, rather than because I have evidence to the contrary.

So, anyone with some insight?

We're living in an era where you can vote freely, express your opinions freely, women and men are equal in the eyes of law and society, homosexuality is tolerated and is given equal recognition in marriage laws, where we live in one of the richest nations in the world and everyone has access to a huge, vast repository of information and education. Forget the halcyon days of the British Empire in the 1800's, this is the golden age.

Yes, but there's too many brown people and we're not allowed to drive as fast as we want. It's an outrage.
