    I am British and proud to be so.

    There is so much I love about this country: our tolerance; our sense of humour; our big hearts when it comes to charitable causes; our resolve; our music (Queen, The Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles...); our authors (Dickens, Shakespeare...); our comedy (Ricky...

    ... 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...

    I like being British!

    It's nice to speak to so many people on EP and see where there from and what it is like there, but many people always say they want to come to England and see what we have to offer

    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.
