An old (but not ancient), diverse (mongrel) country in the British isles, which like everywhere else in the world has both a glorious history(industrialisation, first real democracy, first country to seperate church and state,ending atlantic slave trade, darwin,newton etc) and a shamefull history (the empire, suppresion of wales,scotland+ireland,starting the atlantic slave trade,not declaring war on hitler about 7 years earlier.)
and like everywhere else the population largley consists of relatively open minded friendly enough people trying to carry on with their lives and enjoy themselves, but gets let down by some narrowminded bastards i.e chavs
who thankfully are seen by the majority for what they are i.e scum of the earth.
. english people drink ludicrous amounts of tea
, which is fine as it can help (slightly) prevent various cancers forming
.the only english people who drink warm beer are alcoholics who go to "real ale festivals".
.english did indeed invent a lot of sports, and it's perfectly true that english teams rarely win, this is generally not due to crapness, but more to do with the modern english nation not caring too much about winning,we view taking part and enjoyement being what counts, this viewpoint is translated in the national teams performances.
.english people are slightly racist towards french people and vice versa, this is merely a neighbourly thing, when push comes to shove we love our european friends.
.the english monarchy are inbred,stupid+a drain on taxes, but on the other hand, all capitalist countries have a slight class system, we just give ours titles, also the royal family generate enourmous amounts of tourism+therefore money,only my gran watches the queens speech at christmas. so its win win
.english people dont think of all americans
are fat,stupid,lazy etc, america is still seen as a great place to visit,and a source of some great music and ideas eg. jazz
, hip hop
, the hippy peace movement, bill hicks
; we merely worry that the far right christians (who we hate) seem to be gaining political power+control over the nation e.g. george w bush, the temporary banning of teaching darwinism in certain schools,the (generally) complacent tv media owned by business men with an agenda. etc etc.
.england is not plagued by chavs, and every western country+im assuming all countries, have a section of then allienated youth which frustrated with their social situation tend towards violance and drug addiction ALL countries have chavs of one description or another.
.england gave the world monty pythons flying circus and reddwarf.
.make no mistake england is not bush
's biatch, blair
is, we the english people do not agree with the illegal occupation of iraq
+the obvious thieving of oil that is happening there.
.english people despise blair, but the other choices at previous elections have been sub standard untill now.
.many other people have posted increadibly rude and racist definitions about england, fuck you! you either never came here, went to a shitty area if you did, or are mentally disadvantaged, grow up.
.All in all a nice place so long as you don't mind the rain.
