Why I hate the British:

I hate the British because there's tens of millions of the burgers who haven't yet realised what a utopian place Switzerland is, and then had the decency to up-sticks and move there.

They really clutter the place up sometimes.

I'm a Klingonian and I find the British culture very primitive. And their sense of humour? Better not talk about it...
But I gather Shakespeare in English is almost as good as the Klingonian original?

Oh, c'mon. You know Shakespeare was not a real Englishman..he was of a Klingonian descent..

Really. Get over, people. We/you are not Shakespeare, nor Moliere, nor Ionesco. Only cowards and haters hide behind a nationality.

This thread is getting boring, it was much more fun when we were able to bash on the British...

and what about soccer?

just imagine a World Cup with the light blues against the dark blues rather than England vs. Argentina or Holland vs. Germany. It wouldn't quite cut ice in the same way. And imagine singing the ... er "national" anthem before the match

Light blue light blue overalls
So much better than smelly dark blue.

Oh, I don't know. The Blues and Greens got pretty enthusiastic for their teams in Constantinople in the old days...

You're right. It' O.K. to be fond of our own flag, as long as we don't start looking down to other people thinking we're all some sort of Beckham or Maradona only because we officially belong to the same lot.

Your confusing superiority with irritating smugness.

There is a difference. Really, there is.

Just goes to show that the British are too resiliant, just give in, there really is no point in resisting the truth...
