    Default Anti-britishism

    I wan't to know what you folks think about it, I'm not going to even attempt a proper definition.
    I feel that Britain because it holds a special place in the world, is being targeted as a nation.

    I am going to ignore the fact that other countries get taken the *jam* out of, because I want to feel good.
    I wan't to believe that you are all enviuos of us.

    they fully intended on defending us as well as they did singapore and let us get annexed by the japenese while they fought their stupid ,regular as daybreak wars over a cow pat sized piece of worthless dirt called europe

    they spread this silly, painstakingly long (5 DAYS!!! who ever heard of such a thing), boring game called cricket like an std, and to continue the sexual analogy, like their sex, its boring & they are cr@p at it.

    they suffer from little nation syndrome, so they had to go around colouring half the globe pink

    the royal family (yes William too)

    they smell bad

    they whine incessantly about everything

    Essex slappers

    they wore bright red coats and fought in little squares so they were easier to kill

    the bill

    they deep fry everything

    the spontaneously combust if subject to direct sunlight

    they say they are speaking english but you cant understand a word that comes out of their mouths

    a smiling englishman is a contradiction in terms

    their silly little partitioning lines they drew all over the globe has caused most of the worlds wars

    That's a good point, of course he has finest quality Australian Lager while we have to suffer cheap watery and warm 2 - 3% flat slop, as all the beer here is like that.

    As for anti-britishism, I blame the Welsh, Scots and Northern Irish. Obviously no one could dislike the English as we are famously friendly, down to earth, and modest. Also we have quaint laws that the Americans love, like still having the death penalty for orthodontists after one laughed at queen Victoria's vast overbite.

    BTW, apparently not only is the beer in Australia poor quality lager, but they drink it in halves? Can you imagine? Mind you if I had to drink Fosters I wouldn't want to drink pints either.

    So why do the Anti-American threads have generally sensible discussion as to why the world thinks of America as it does, but the Anti-Britishism thread has so far just been a place to mock the British?
    Is there going to be reasonable discussion or are we just going to see anti-British insults the whole time?

    Unless I'm way off, I took this thread as making a mockery of the anti-American threads...

    Anyway, for all the British posters back here, what countries or parts of the world do you not feel welcome in? That's more or less the gauge I use for anti-Americanism. How many places I can go on vacation where I don't feel like the locals are expecting me to apologize immediately after hello.

    Interesting thread thus far in comparisson to the other "anti" threads going. This isnt meant as spam, but I wanted to be sure I got subscribed.

    for the record im not anti british, I think its a great place my brother in law is from Surrey, nice chap, except for him going on about "the ashes" and cricket.
    There are few things more annoying than some idiot who has never done anything trying to say definitively how something should be done.

    Insults, if I have anything to do with it. Stiff upper lip old bean. At least we are still worth insulting. Who ever had a prejudice against Norway?*

    @ prole, the middle east is a bit ropey. On the other hand being a Brit in Manhatten is gravy I regard that as a more than reasonable trade off. Rest of the world is usually a piece of cake, once they realise you aren't American People are surprisingly forgiving about the whole Empire thing, on the whole. (Obviously, we taught them well...)

    Oh, and bits of Ireland aren't completely great.

    I don't think anti-Britishism exists in the USA. If you've ever seen "Love, Actually", that Colin character? There's truth there, believe me. You'll be out at the bar, spending good cash on drinks and cutting a fine rug, just to see a 'chick vaccuum' appear when one of our neightbors from across the pond arrives. American girls will fall over themselves fighting to get their mitts on the goofiest, palest, skinniest dude with coke bottle glasses at the drop of the word "al-you-min-ee-um". It's just not fair

    Every now and then you'll get some REAL hick or redneck that will feel a need to defend the nation's honor by hearkening back to our victories in 1783 and 1812 (wasn't one of those technically a draw? here's a hint...if we don't have a warship named after one of the battles, it wasn't a huge success for us). But the vast majority of Americans feel as though you, the Aussies, the Canadians and the Israelis are the only friends we've got left in the world.

    But for the love of Christ, learn to cook!
