Whats it like to be British? An understanding of subtle irony in comedy is very important as is a self depreciating sense of humour. Hating the French and most other Europeans would be an advantage but viewing the former colonys as "naughty children" when they start wars or international feuds etc. Manners and a sense of fair play are also very important. I personally do have bad teeth and see no real malice in americans making jokes about the british teeth (its just a joke!!)
Oh and on a final note we gave the French mad cow disease LOL!!!

Nice people who live in a country with a good history and nice nature, they don't live in average American houses, the average family lives in a small house. But that's usually very normal. American cartoons often mistake the British for highly boring people who were tuxedos and fancy outfits with a bowler hat or a top hat which always speak unusually from the past. The British capital city is London.
British: Hey, nice to meet you.
American: What the hell?! WHERE'S YOUR FANCY-PANTS OUTFIT AND ACCENT?! FUCKING HELL!

An indigenous person born and raised here who is decended from generations of ancestors who have for thousands of years worked, fought and died to protect this great land. Not a foreigner who's just got off a plane at Heathrow, the underside of a truck at Dover or a banana boat in the 50's.
I concider myself British because I can trace my family tree in this country back some 400 years. My grandparents fought in WW2 and my great grandparents in WW1. I would not concider myself British if I was born and could trace my family roots in another country and merely came to this country in order to find work or improve my quality of life. Equally I would not claim to be, or expect to be recognised as Indian if I upped sticks and moved to Delhi, or Nigerian if I moved to Abuja.
