Favourite Britain, 1456341 votes since 20/02/2010
This may be a United Kingdom, but ask any two of us to nominate their favourite Briton and you will probably get three suggestions - two names and one physical impossibility when you disagree vehemently with both. Repeat the process with favourite film, restaurant, town, theatre, attraction and a host of others and you'll elicit the same response - everyone has their own opinion which is coincidentally the correct one. And of course it is: there is no right answer to questions of taste and preference - except yours. Thank goodness we don't all think alike - that reflects the riches, individuality, and sometimes the unashamed strangeness of this country. Information Britain loves the breadth of responses received so far, and anticipates further surprises as the voting continues.
