I've never quite got to grips with "Britishness"... Nor accepted it thoughly as a term, at least in reference to myself as it seems simply another label to add to the growing collection of labels being thrown around.

OP- please educate yourself properly. Go out and meet some genuine Muslim people, instead of relying on misguided reports from the propaganda press of this country.
Have a good day and enjoy the sunshine.

I guess I am a 'britophobe'...
As far as I'm concerned, we have as much to be ashamed about, as we do to celebrate.

My mistake. Of course the Scots, Welsh and NI like being seperate to England. If thats what helps you sleep at night then by means revel in that fact.
However, i cant see how our small little countrys are different in the ways of culture? Unless, they welcome immigrants to come over and demolish what you have? Perhaps you like rolling out the red carpet and changing places on the council lists in order to help a migrant family with 4 kids instead of a british family with 4 kids?
Perhaps you can freely celebrate the saints of your country and dont know what it is to feel threated by those that look at your culture like its scum.
But its your perogative. Perhaps it maybe just "Englishphobia" But the way i see it, this is England and we dont have to bend to your culture while shelfing our own.
Just my opinion.
