British are just Americans with an accent, and complain when they don’t get enough tea?

Well British are indeed tea addicts, but a Brit drinks more tea than any person of any other nation (over twenty times more than Americans!).
That’s an amazing record, so there’s no way we’re just Americans with an accent :P


And Since when do British complain when they are not getting enough tea? They have kettles to make tea very easily...
But Asians have to make their tea in a saucepan, so screw you! :P


And British know how to end a war... in relation to the Siege of Yorktown?

What’s that suppose to mean? The fact that we were defeated so well?
The Americans needed the help of the French to aid them in the Siege of Yorktown and together they outnumbered the British 2:1
And Yes we Brits do know how to end a war... with a win!
http://en.wikipedia.org...
We won the First Opium War with just 69 killed, 451 wounded. The Chinese however had 18,000–20,000 casualties.


Back over to you Pro :D

Im American by the way. And Asians dont just make tea, they also make sake (or at least the Japanese do), Which is rice wine.
And The Battle of Yorktown was lost because the entire British army was POW'd when
Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis thought it was a good idea to watch for ships on a peninsula.

And the The reason the Brits had won the Opium war was because China could have been taken over the Americans.
Japan was has a low obesity rate.

Sake? Rice wine? Is that really the best you got? I don't think sake is all that popular outside Asia :/

Well we Brits have fish and chips!!! That's a worldwide liking ;)
Fish and chips are a great dish and popular tradition associates the dish with the United Kingdom. The dish remains very popular in the UK and in areas colonised by British people in the mid 19th century, when the dish originated, such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
Besides we Brits also invented the "pyramid tea bag," with the company PG tips... it has a unique design that addresses one of connoisseurs' arguments against paper tea bags; because it's three-dimensional tetrahedron shape allows more room for tea leaves to expand while steeping. [1]
That is so intelligent isn't it? ;)

Even Asians seem highly enjoy our tea and fish and chips, seems they want to be us. [2]

And the Battle of Yorktown was lost because Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis thought it was a good idea to watch for ships on a peninsula?
One man's silly mistake doesn't prove a whole county to be like that, by that logic all Chinese people should think they can catch massive falling trees like this man in my 3rd video. [3]
He just did an EPIC FAIL :L

Finally Pro you said:
"And the The reason the Brits had won the Opium war was because China could have been taken over the Americans. Japan was has a low obesity rate."
That doesn't make any sense. If you want to use that for your argument Pro you better prove it :S

Anyway yet again back over to you Pro

You have no rebuttal over my BP or Japan's low obesity rate.
And Japanese girls are much more fine then Brits. All you really got Is Pippa Middleton(?).
The Japanese have great food. MUCH better. And I dont need one video to tell me othersise
BillBonJovi

Con

I have no rebuttal over your BP or Japan's low obesity rate?
Well at least I rebutted everything else
Fine if you want a rebuttal get a load of this...
Apart from third world countries Japan has a very high suicide rate. It seems the most popular form of suicide is using a lethal, painless gas; many people leave notes in the windows of cars and drive somewhere quiet and secluded like the mountains, and gas out the car. In fact there is so much suicide that people do it in big groups. [1]
Japan is one of the wealthiest countries, one of the most well educated countries in the world, but yet why do they resort to suicide so much?
So my suicide rate argument outweighs your low obesity rate argument ;)

And when you said BP are you referring to the BP company? I'll rebut this in my final round.

And Japanese girls are much more fine then Brits you say?
Then how come on FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011 not a single Japanese woman made the list?
Just take a look at the list: http://www.fhm.com...
When I looked at the list I couldn't see any Japanese woman on the list but there are at least 5 Brits on there, such as Kelly Brook, Cheryl Cole, Emma Watson, Kate Middleton, Keira Knightley and Angelina Jolie.
Our Brit girls must be more fine than Japanese girls then :D

And finally Pro you say Japanese have much better food?
Well that's down to opinion, but if you know much about food then you know that the full English breakfast is considered the best in the world.
Watch the video and you will see that British have great food too. [2]

Ok back over to you again Pro ;)

For Starters,. UK is 2nd in Europe for crime.
Japan has a low homicide rate. So at least they are not killing each other. But still killing yourself is bad.


British food is not healthier then Japanese food. The Japanese put less sugar and more veggie-tables.
If people are skinny, if girls are skinny(not too skinny but healthy)

about 60% of Uk adults are obese
Japan?
about 3%

Therefore skinny girls tend to look better so if theres more skinny girls there might be more finer girls

First Pro says “UK is 2nd in Europe for crime” but what about an unseen crime, the crime of China’s communist government? People who hate the ruling party cannot speak it out because they will be sentenced to several years in prison or even killed. Chinese people actually have very little freedom. [1]
At least in the UK people live freely without having to fear their own government :D

Pro then said “Japan has a low homicide rate. So at least they are not killing each other. But still killing yourself is bad.”
Pro is not meant to just be arguing for Japan he needs to argue for china as well as Pro stated in the start of the debate that he would be for “Asians(China-Japan area)”.
The results of china’s government is basically a high homicide rate, and Pro have not given any evidence that Japan doesn’t have a high homicide so my argument still stands.


“British food is not healthier then Japanese food. The Japanese put less sugar and more veggie-tables. If people are skinny, if girls are skinny(not too skinny but healthy)”
Instead of healthy food how about safe food? A lot of Japanese foods are dangerous because they may be poisoned. Such as Fugu which is a fish which contains deadly poison in different parts of the body. Despite the risk, Fugu dishes remain as special feasts in Japan. [2]
So be happy that British food is safe to eat ;)


Pro you say about 60% of UK adults are obese? How do you know that? You failed to provide evidence for that, so your argument is invalid.
Pro says only 3% of Japanese adults are obese, well that is wrong. A 2008 report stated that 28.6% of men and 20.6% of women in Japan were considered to be obese. [3]
Pro you should have researched your facts more :P


Pro finally said:
“Therefore skinny girls tend to look better so if theres more skinny girls there might be more finer girls” (in relation to Japanese being so thin)
Well that is a very silly argument. If it was true then surely Japanese woman would be more popular worldwide, but it seems they are not as popular as British girls. Also Japanese woman have smaller breast sizes than most other woman which could be the reason why and logically makes them less attractive.


Conclusion of debate:

I have rebutted all the arguments my opponent made, however for a lot of my rebuts, my opponent failed to rebut them back at all. Also my opponent was meant to arguing in favour of both china and Japan but towards the end of the debate he forgot about china and just focused on Japan. So my opponent is unworthy to win this debate therefore I must urge a Con vote.

Anyway I thank you Pro for this fun debate, maybe we can debate again sometime ;)
