American conservatives think Europe is a socialist hellhole where everyone takes the train.
Public transport in the UK is expensive and very badly run (and largely privatised - at least the rail service - these days so it's only public transport in terms of who can use it, not who owns it). Other European countries manage to run far more efficient services with far cheaper ticket prices - I don't know why we are so bad at it :-(
Besides, taking the train in Germany (which a few years back subsidised its train system four times more than the UK) made me really appreciate the efficiency of the UK system. It's just dreadful there.
btw non-americans can fall for it too, I did. (but partly since you added it as a question, thinking if the answer would be car the question wouldn't be on here. And maybe partly cause I am naive haha, and actually I didn't read througoughly, was thinking more of london than the entire UK. Because if I would have thought about the entire UK no way I would have answered Public transport.)
It is, however, part of the British Isles, which is presumably why it's in this quiz about British geography. It fits.
