The main problem is of course that it's full of Krauts.

I spend a lot of time on krautchan so my opinion is probably a bit tainted.

Anyway the general opinion in these here Isles is amiable to positive, we've no (recent) reason to dislike you, and have imported various bits of germania culture and food, for example Christmas markets, and it's not unusual to see stalls advertising schnitzel and wurst these days.

My personal opinion is somewhat similar, though I dislike some aspects of the German mentality, if krautchan is anything to go by (which it obviously isn't but it opens your eyes to some marginally held opinions) is that you're too willing to blame your faults on others, I see it isn't entirely unusual to be sympathetic with Putin over there, and often amounts itself to saying you're under 'american occupation' when the reality is they're cutting their bases there, and they're there entirely at the whim of the German government. The us even goes so far as to lobby Germany to increase its military power and make itself a proper country again rather than the pacifist, insular country it has become.

I don't much like Germany's attitude to Europe. It keeps the south on life support whilst refusing to pick up the slack where it needs to, notably with regard to it's damagingly large trade surplus and refusal to help combat the effects of deflation.

Anyway, back to the more positives. I'd agree with the US when I think Germany should be more outspoken internationally than it is, you're our largest trading partner (and vice versa) and at least from our perspective having good relations with Germany is fundamental to our future whether in our out of the EU. It surprises me how little our cultures interact, despite having similar roots, but there you go.

Oh, and nobody knows anything about Switzerland and Austria. Switzerland is full of banks and gold, Austria is very pretty and full of child molesters. That's pretty much it.

Well I admire Germanosphere's 'Christian Democratic' political model (and the general consensus model in politics) which seems to combine the best aspects of state welfare provision and a market economy, with none of the bad things.

UK politics is just too adversarial, the left are too infected with cultural marxism, fostering a sense of victimhood and identity politics for me, while the right (aka Tories) just seem to be an interest group for the landed aristocracy, city of London and megacorps.

That's incorrect.
Tipping is expected in Germany, then why would they not tip abroad all of a sudden.

You really spent too much time on KC /int/, m8.
These people really aren't your standard Germans.
Even the ones posting under a German flag are mostly foreigners.

yes- but the whole left/right division is still too pronounced. And it's utterly pointless. Left/right dates from after the French Revolution to a unique set of circumstances related to that time. And even just discounting the whole left/right, the fact that the main political division Labour/Tory, is too tribalistic (quite literally with our ingrained class system), as stated I would prefer German style consensus politics.
