Are you suggesting that our Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi brothers are 'any old Johnny Foreigners'?

You can call them whatever derogatory term you'd like, Mister Tolerant.

Why would I want to do that?

Re: EF safety valve (aka - why do you hate the British)

The Swiss love The Life of Brian. The Swiss love British beer. Some enjoy reading about the royal family in Gala or Glucksblatt.

And that's about as much as the Swiss really care about Britian.

Re: EF safety valve (aka - why do you hate the British)

I don't have any reason to hate them, quite on the contrary, so I guess I do have to hate them....
Seriously, if not the language there are at least two other things I feel I benefited from the Brits: their sense of humour and self-irony...if only more people could learn that..

Re: EF safety valve (aka - why do you hate the British)

I can't hate the British...especially after reading this.
They are dwarves

It also explains why they have problems with the French, Germans and Italians....

I don't know why you folk have so many problems with all this.

I love all mankind - it's just people I can't stand.

Re: EF safety valve (aka - why do you hate the British)

Not the actual people but can only take that accent in small doses.
Adore fish and chips though

Speaking of which, what is it with the Southern English and loving ducks.

It's just not right. It's perverse.
