Yes, terrible standard of living, my house is awfully cramped. It's the good thing the rickets I get from my 2 metre large bedroom can be cured with the FREE HEALTHCARE WE ENJOY HERE *vanishes in a burst of teabags to the sound of Big Ben bonging repeatedly*

Fun fact Japanese apartments are the same. When I came over here to teach the company put me in a standard apartment (I'm in a bigger one now) which was a room the size of a house living room, a bathroom with shower (I was lucky to get a shower) and a tiny corner the size of a closet with a stove in it which was my kitchen. Gif is pretty much what the lady told me when I said it was rather small.  I lived there for three years and honestly it wasn't too bad. I was just one person afterall.

I live in a house that would probably be considered cramped by Americans, but over here we don't really know any different so no one really cares.

ITs simply because we had the "industrial Revolution. "

We needed to cram as many people as possible in small cities, close to work areas, so smaller houses meant more people and a larger work force. Also, the houses were usually built and run by the factory owners so it was more cost efficient to make them smaller to fit more houses into the land they owned. This **** building style just stuck throughout the centuries (pretty much 2 hundred years at this point) and we have built up our cities so ******* much that we have no choice to build small houses/apartments to cater for the sheer amount of people living in such a small space.

we're not cramped because WE'RE not overweight.

neither of those things have anything to do with anything
America's not cramped and England is because America has 313 million people across 9,826,675 square kilometers and England is cramped because it has 55 million people across 130,395 square km.
Basically america has 6 times the people as england and 75 times as much space to put them.

Japan is the same way too, I think it comes down to just how much room there is in their countries.

this doesn't make much sense

Eastern Asia have it far worse than the UK.
but they have so much less landmass. it's nothing to do with liking it, or it being a bad decision. it's just necessary to fit the population in.

Yeah. But America is just one big ******* shopping mall.
You can keep it, I'd ******* hate to be an American.

Wait our houses are small? ive never been cramped. Most rooms are easily 10x10+ meters (Excluding bathrooms and the spare bedrooms) Even my rented room for university is about 11x10 and it has an onsuite added on. Maybe its just a city thing.
