We are many things, as a nation. We can be lazy and dumb and outraged at the drop of a hat, we drink too much and we don’t tan well. We take all of this stuff for granted and don’t even notice when the BNP and EDL drape themselves in our flag and say they speak for us when they don’t.


First off, that makes me look very un-British. Second of all don't all politicians, extreme or not, say that they speak for 'us' when they don't? Don't newspapers also do this at least some of the time?

We are not perfect, as a nation, but for more than a thousand years we have left a mark upon the world and its culture that is much larger than a tiny country like ours could expect to leave, and by and large we have done good.


No one is perfect, well, apart from the Swiss maybe, they seem pretty perfect.

I'm sure that historically that statement is inaccurate. I mean it's really hard to say our ongoing feud with the French over birthrights and wot not really impacted on much other than the two nations, and that was more down to the Normans (who were not British) and their future generations of French speaking ruling classes.

We are part of a very interwoven European history, so it is not like any other nations can be less proud of leaving a mark at that point in time. In many ways there are smaller nations, population wise, that achieved more in that time.

But still, I get their drift.

Ah, a bottle of Tapping the Admiral in honour of a pickled Nelson.
Reckless, vain, possibly bi-polar and porker of the tarty lady Hamilton but undoubtedly a great English hero.

I have to say I am rather proud of Nelson. He's a local boy after all, is it any wonder that he was good at sea? He had webbed digits!

Lots of great sailors from Norfolk. It's the quickest way to get away from the fucking awful place!

Wot, papers like trashy red-top tabloids with the history of scummy editors deceiving readers?
