Who does the government? What does Right Honourable mean? If you don't understand the first thing about British politics, but you want to, this series was made for you. \n\nVARIOUS OTHER THINGS\nVarious other things.

  • "Would you mess with China?" Me, an American "HELL YEA!"

  • Time zones were a necessity in Canada. Invented by a Canadian. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_in_Canada#:~:text=Canada%20is%20divided%20into%20six,and%20a%20standard%20prime%20meridian.

  • I rather say in sign language than saying these names😂

  • Damn, Barack Obama has a good English accent

  • Who is the girl in the bar with short hair? Easily the most beautiful girl I've ever seen 🤩

  • video was nice until skill share. !

  • Wow, there were fewer than 60 million people at this point.

  • the north is officially as soon as people start talking funny, in conclusion the divide is just south of bristol

  • This is really interesting to me because I just would be assumed these are all easy to pronounce cos I'm used to them

  • I thought Kiribati straddled the date line, so moving the date line was to solve internal problem. Wikipedia agrees with me. Some people who had bought tickets to celebrate in whatever was the "first place to see the new millenium" before this move tried to sue them over it, but since time zones are purely conventional that went nowhere.

  • This song being totally prophetic about todays... Prime Potato. If the potato said incomprehensible gibberish in Latin.

  • Wait, was that Tom Ridgewell?

  • Shrimps are laughing in the distance

  • ''Crowley, what you did with the M25 was a stroke of pure, demonic genius!''

  • Elon Musk should take it over as practice run for his Mars colony.

  • 5:31 This area with aughton and town green is literally a 5 minute drive away from where I live XD. I'm low-key surprised that they'd use an example that I didn't know that was so close to home (literally)

  • Aside from how great this video is overall, I love the random King Crimson 20th Century Schizoid Man riff at around 5:55

  • Great video but Grimsby is not named after a viking. Grim was another name given to Woden, or Odin if we're using the silent W 😆

  • Sooo u rly did esperanto subs and did not russian subs??? )

  • Can you do Yellow Submarine

  • Can we all just appreciate how good this teacher is? Letting them do their homework IN SCHOOL, IN LESSON TIME!


  • Okay, from now on I will seriously spoil my vote everytime. Draw a Dickbutt over the page maybe or something.

  • And here I am. Thinking that AV sounds like the same bullshit, because its just a tactical vote with one more step. In such a system, where one party holds 80% of the votes and a other holds 20%, this means that 20% of the population doesn't get represented at all. This could be good in case of extreme parties, but also bad if the party overall isn't as good, but also have some better ideas.

  • can i have this but like, for historical settings? i dont care about what poncy noblemen get up to, i wanna know how much havoc they could legally cause if they dahm well wanted to eschew social norms and explore the limits of legality instead

  • эмэйзинг

  • Quite before the French Revolution, Voltaire wrote more than once that the UK was a Republic disguised in Monarchy.

  • The Sim City music at 4:10 killed me. I spent so many hours playing those games in the 90s.

  • Absolutely brilliant like milk

  • 1:29 "He also wants to build a wants to build a research centre in 'North Sudan'" - Mail online

  • as per usual, the english are beaten at their own game. It's like poetry in motion

  • Look up a video called a clown takes a pratfall, classic example of war between cars and bikes

  • Jay, i know you're reading this. You're a Legend!

  • my town on the tube!

  • Taking exception to darn tooting...

  • This should be on TV....

  • I must have watched this video well over 100 times...if only we could finish the northern heights and build only affordable housing to go alongside the local areas. I need to get on the property ladder

  • i love these guys. so informative and not boring at all. can i ask are they brothers cause they kinda look alike hehe

  • Sorry, had to down vote because of that isles jab. Its been 100 years, grow up.

  • English isn't a language. It's 4 languages that mug other languages and then rifle through their pockets for loose grammar.

  • 7:35 Thank you so much for putting this London Borough in because it is hardly ever heard of.

  • Don't buy The Sun

  • Matt Lucas, comedy 11/10

  • So anyone can knock prime minister office?

  • My phone was on 32% whilst I watched this video . Perfection

  • and this was before Boris was even a cabinet member!

  • Teesside UTB🔴⚪️🔴🇦🇹

  • Heads up: your subtitles are slightly out of sync :)

  • We need a Polish Jay Foreman

  • Polish "allies" is...somewhat generous to the Soviets, no?

  • Can someone dm me their surf shark login details please? You can have my Netflix login 😊

  • 0:08 kinda looks poland

  • I like how he put "Taxman" by the Beatles at 2:29

  • 0:00 Ah a normal map men - lovely 1:30 ...this better not awaken anything in me...

  • but they aren’t! you have either to be native or, be patient, learn and practice - they ain’t gonna change, .......anytime soon!

  • Non capisco un cazzo

  • Brilliant!

  • The moment I heard the Yes Minister theme at #3 my smile widened so much that I may have torn a face muscle

  • Genius

  • Love your content, stay safe

  • That sponsorship video is the best thing XD

  • Me Again

  • Me

  • No, Larry the Downing Street cat

  • Sorry Jay, but Hackney's road signs are my favourite, followed by the "rather ugly variant of Thymes New Roman"... Westminster's is only "okay".

  • North South divide = line drawn from the Wash to Severn estuary.

  • There's s village in Scotland called Twatt. What is the correct pronunciation?

  • 11 years ago, baggier jeans and better content

  • 1:53, doesn't seem like other religions to me, just a bunch of white people

  • Happisburgh is pronounced Hayesborough

  • The reason Arizona has different areas that follow DST differently is because the Navajo nation that lies inside Arizona observes DST while the Hopi and the rest of the state do not.

  • 0:30

  • “Now that’s a map” has got to be my favourite joke on the show, no idea why it makes me laugh so hard every time

  • www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2021/01/26/unbuilt-london-the-channel-tunnel-terminus-at-white-city/ Are you still doing the unfinished London series ?

  • Should have developed Manston Airport in Kent. It already had the space, it would have poured money into a struggling county, created hundreds (if not thousands of jobs) and already has fast links to London.

  • I live in Frome, I never new people could so thoroughly cock it up, except for an employee of mine from Bristol, he beyond cocked it up, I've pronounced "fromagé" closer to Frome then he did

  • I have more nightmares about cambridge analytica tbh...

  • whenever I hear the words «The *honourable* gentlemen» I want to through something heavy at the screen

  • "a baffling thousands of years old institution that's been around for hundreds of years" As soon as he said that i realised something. He's a moron.

  • Scotland has a four-way split: Highlands vs Lowlands Greater Glasgow vs Everywhere Else Islanders vs Mainlaners The Rainy Side (west) vs The Less Rainy Side (east)
