    Well that's the end of it really.

    I'm British. I think a few years ago that was more of something to be proud of than it is now but I'm still proud to be British and I'm still proud of my country and what we are. Even if it's just having a queen and not being too bad as a country in general. I'm not saying that...

    ... and proud to be so!

    Having traveled around the world a bit I'm also very glad. Where else do you get a country with free healthcare, freedom of speech AND the media, voluntary military service, jobseekers' and ill-health support, free schooling, massively subsidised higher education and a conscious...

    Very scared to live in England at the moment.

    .. Not trying to disrespect anyone but I'm so scared. Listening to the radio is freaking me out yet I can't turn it off... :'( I just hope all this terrorism stuff is nothing more than media hype.

    Being British...

    Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgium beer.  Then traveling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese television.

    When I saw that Alan Henning had been brutally

    killed in Syria, I actually wept for a fellow Brit. He went out there to do good. No-one deserves this horrific end, least of all someone with a good heart.

    I remember having an argument with an American

    I'm a proud British,

    but I don't understand how some people think we have a nice accent? Not everyone has the same accent in Britain an according to where they're from, they can sound really rough. Can't stand, rough, uneducated accents. >_< sorry.

    I like the British way of life.

    I am proud to be so, I think we are easy going as a nation. I hate the government and will be voting BNP. I think the ones in parliament now are after all that they can get and nothing more. Its one rule for them and screw everyone else. I love being a British and hope we...
