I like the Limy bastards.


No really I have no problem with our brothers and sisters from ANYWHERE really... Ok I don't like Zionists.. Thats it!

There are so many reasons not to like a person, just got to know them, then you can find real reasons not to like a person.

I dislike cultures and ideologies not people.

You Yanks are alrite, its just your government. But don't be hating on the general populace. I don't see how any Americans could dislike us English- The majority of you are descended from us.

Its all good

The only rapper I can think of worse than those you named is Soulja Boy. Which says alot.

The equivelant would be an American hyping up Lady Sovereign and Dizzee Rascal

One thing i do hate about a lot of people from the US is them refering to us all as Brits!
I'm not a Brit, i'm English born and bred and proud of it.
The term Great Britain to me just smacks of colonialism and is outdated.
Another thing is i've noticed a few people mention our views on US gunlaws, Well i'm 42 years old and i've never had a conversation or heard other people discussing US gunlaws.Honestly i dont think 99.9% of the population could give two hoots on the subject.


You're English, British, European and an Earthling.

Your political views are irrelevant.

I don't hate British. Many Americans do, and I believe there's tension both ways.

Americans say the same thing about Brits.
-You are all dirty.
-Yellow Teeth
-Try to re-create the "accent"
-Say bloody a lot

Then British come and say...
-You fat Americans
-Go eat McDonalds
-You're president is black
-Or even worse "haha 9/11"


I think it should stop personally. We don't need it. Even if you do get a kick out of it.


Lol what? I've never seen any Brit say "Your president is black"

I love the british, their comedy is hilarious. I also feel sorry for them because they are defenseless against criminals. Why would I be opposed to any people? Now if you want to talk about the british government that's a different story.

I love the Brits. When I was a schoolboy and saw filmstrips of war time horrors and destruction that our friends across the pond so bravely endured I developed a great respect for Brits.

Some of the best TV programs, comedies and movies is Brit. The music and cinema scene is also very happening in the UK.

There are wise-guys online and comedians on TV that poke fun at British dentistry and cuisine, but there is nothing new about rehashed chuckles being beat to pieces, regardless of whether or not they may be based in fact or fallacy.

The thing that bothers me is reading about all the observation cameras in the UK. Either this subject is blown way out of proportion or George Orwell's '1984' is alive and well, I don't know which.

I heard they were thinking of making a film about Mr. Ben. Is that true? I have heard nothing since I first read it last year.

You've got to love the Brits! Come on, they gave us some of the best music (Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc) and comedy (Monty Python). The only thing I didn't like was when Tony Blair and Bush would be interviewed at the same time. I mean, Bush had a hard enough time trying to sound intellegent, but when he had to follow Tony Blair....Yikes!

St patrick was french... And no I dont celebrate anything to do with christianity


Actually St Patrick was Welsh.


Actually St Patrick is of Roman descent AKA LOL Italian !

as We all can truly say that the English are partly Italian(Roman) Viking(Norman) and German(Anglo-Saxon) The Royals of the U.K. During Queen Victoria time on the throne were mostly Germanic descent ! Strange but true


If I remember correctly, Roman father and British mother - but born in Wales, do we not split hairs here a little?

Saxe Coburg is indeed a Germanic lineage, but it wasn't during Victorian time. Prince Albert, Queen Victorias husband is of that descent, but as he wasn't king then you can't say that royalty at the time was Germanic. King Edward VIIm Victoria's son was the only English king explicitly named as being part of that bloodline, it's the same one now, just known as Windsor since 1910. Got to say though, it's hardly a pure bloodline, only the Prince Regent Albert contributed to it.


ST Patricius
Roman Father yup Italian Where is Rome ? British MOM ?

Parents of St Patrick
According too...
Celtic Christianity.org Briton Father Frank Mother
celticchristianity.org...


The Telegraph


1. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.


Catholic.org
www.catholic.org...


Patrick was born around 385 in Scotland, probably Kilpatrick. His parents were Calpurnius and Conchessa, who were Romans living in Britian in charge of the colonies.

ohh boy


Queen Victoria's Fathers MOTHER (German)

Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz
en.wikipedia.org...


Queen Victoria Mother (German)
en.wikipedia.org...

Queen Victoria's Husband (German)
Prince Albert
en.wikipedia.org...

So What was the percentage of English did the The Royals had at THAT particular time ? so all of her Offspring ( Issues) were Mostly German ! Right Or Wrong ? and we all know where they were spread across Europe as Every Europe Royal Blood like is part of a English Royal (Opps I mean German LOL)

I was sort of kidding, but I'd be a liar if I didn't admit a lot of my early exposure to England was watching old movies on late night TV as a kid. I still watch those old Sherlock Holmes movies whenever they come on.



(PBS) Mine too, Benny HILL Monty Python , Red Dwarf , & Dr Who

I lived in Swansea for 3 years.I love Wales.I toured South Wales with a rugby team and played in Merthyr and Ebbw Vale and Newport.What a laugh!!Best accents ever.And I have never been anywhere where so many people can sing so well.Being in the old Arms Park and the new Millennium Stadium for Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau was an awesome experience.Makes the hairs on the back of one's neck stand up like no other anthem can.

Also having lived in Abertawe ,Twin Town is one of my favourite movies.Tidy as F**k mush!

You can eat very well in both countries,or you can eat crap.Look for the Michelin Star(s) and you can't go wrong.And if that's too flash, visit your local farmer's market.Tescos and Stop & Shop etc, are poisonous.

Thats right they cooked the books m8 lol. The evidence is their to see and doubt you have little concept of the Crown estate or how it differs from their own private property not held in trust because you would sooner go on about the potatoe famin like its really relevant to the current Monarchy. And then of course you come up with some crap that i have been brainwashed, no i havent been brainwashedrthe reason they held them ships up was because the Irish never would or could tow the line and so were probably perceived as enemys of the sate. I dont know if the event ever happened and i dont care we did some good stuff, ending slave trade, and we did some # stuff, inadvertantly creating the first concentration camp, but none of that is relevant to our current Monarch or Monarchy. *SNIP*

Persoanlly, I love the Brits. The entire UK. I was lucky enough to have visited there in the early 90s and loved the place. We think 1776 is an "old" date. Well, there you'll find buildings (like pubs) dated to 1076. The women are gorgeous. The accent is fantastic. I should say the accentS are fantastic, as there are numerous different British accents, much like here in America. Hats off to the Brits, and everything they did to resist the Axis in WWII, holding them at bay until we got smart enough to join in. Also, to their collaborative work with our government on UFOs.

Yeah just read the rest of your post, dont take it out on me because you eat # food m8. And most people i have spoken to in the course of my dailf LIFE are actualy looking forward to the royal wedding. WHY? hm extra bank holiday, late pub hours in which to spend time with friends and family haveing fun. so i guess we must all be brainwashed. Or could it be that your just bitter because your life hasnt worked out as you would have liked, well to be honest i may not be eating value range but im certainly not rich. This does not mean i look at the monarchy and judge them through envy, no i look at the good they do, the same as i look at someone like Branson, Green or Abramovich. Dont be bitter, aspire. and dont spout such drivel. A constitutional Monarchy is as good as any form of Government i have seen yet, for us to depose them would be meaningless. In America and France their is a history and meaning to their Republics. Here it would just be a choice, and then we would replace them with something else as divided, because even if Monarchists are not the majority, neither are republicans, i know plenty of communists, anarchists, socialists even fascists. And in the shareing of opininons with any of these peole still have not needed to resort to just insulting because i dissagree with them.
