Although, like most websites, DDO is freely accessible to members and non-members from most countries, it remains largely dominated by users from North America. Nothing wrong with that, of course.

However, a sizable minority of users post from over here in good old Blighty and I feel that a space - a forum - should be created wherein British people could discuss domestic interests that may be of little interest beyond these shores, but may of be great interest to us users from the UK.

So, how about it?

How many British users in the forums? 5, maybe?

I think this would fall similarly under the reasons why there is no history forum, there's nothing stopping you guys from creating threads within the other categories. Personally, I'd like to see you guys talk about domestic issues, I'd like to learn more about what's going on over there. I also think that there is a European perspective that we get third hand that is distorted by the media.

If you get a sizable amount of support we could look at a next step, but i'm guessing that won't happen.

Thats a big IF, and so long as we keep the GOP out of office and out of our Congress, that's not gonna happen.

Chinese economy is a bubble. Wait until half their workforce is retired and supported by the "one child one family" generation. Also their higher education system is shiit, theres a reason most of the tech talent comes to US universities. No one wants to move to China because the government is still pretty repressive in a lot of big ways- they cant attract talent like the US can.

The assassination of a fugitive terrorist that long since eluded the grasp of Mr. Bush is bad foreign policy? In fact, before I even play that card, may I remind you that America is more favored under Obama than the Bush administration. I think 2 things of republicans when it comes to Obama: Genuinely Ignorant, or deliberately deceitful.

Don't be silly. You realize that actions like that (entering a sovereign nation and killing someone) are neoconservative actions, right? Obama's success in foreign policy (which I gladly give him) is due more to embracing the Bush Doctrine (neocon foreign policy) as opposed to his own parties ideals.

Wait, I thought this was a British forum already with American contingents. If that is not the case, why do I have some many worshippers?
