The British are a country of awesome people who have invented many things and has written great literature. If it wasn't for Britain, the world would be totally different, I mean, Americans really can't bad-mouth Britain as if it wasn't for them, there would be no United States! However, Americans are just as awesome of a group of people as the British. Americans have helped the British, the British have helped Americans, British have made things, Americans have made things, Britain has been a superpower, America is currently a superpower.... seriously, America and Britain, becaise landmass, are equal. They are definetly the best two countries of the world, and without them, i dont even want to think what the world would be like!!
Is one needed? For real, do you not get my point?>>

Something of the United Kingdom unless stated otherwise (Example, Northern Irish person could say they're Irish rather than British).

Common mistakes include:
British = English,
British = English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish

Corrected:
British = English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish.
English is an example of British,
Scottish is an example of British,
Welsh is an example of British,
Northern Irish is a technical example of British,
Irish is NOT an example of British due to Irish independence (Irish war of independence)

I'm proud of being british, i'm sure your proud of being patriotic too of your country.

I also thought the americans were our friends...obviously not, they seem to hate us for some reason judging by the amount of crap isults posted in this dictionary...
personally, I was interested into the amount of directed hate towards us by our american friends and thought why?

apart from our recent international relations with you with invasions against terror and other types, I thought, as a british citizen, that things were normal but instead a find abuse flying between minority groups of the urban dic-tionary from both our nations.

minority groups on your side seem to think that "we go around thinking we own the place", what bollucks, our empire days are over and only hope that it caused as much good as it did bad.

also, you seem to think we live in a mary poppins world with plummy accents; yeah, our accents are weird but we're proud of that :)

saying all this to a british guy and the remarks about bad teeth would just piss him off, becuase it stereotyping at it's worst.

I have a lot of american friends who arn't like certain groups in this dictionary, which is simpy, displaying the bad minorities of both our nations

peace people :)

A union of four nations, England, Scotland, wales and Northern Ireland. Former world super power. But thanks to largely friendly links with it's former colonies still can hold a lot of clout over international opinion.

With in these nations there is a very rich cultural, historical and enthic diversity that attracts over 35 million visitors a year.

Sadly it's population are now mainly disillusioned with its internal political system and as a result we have a very pro Bush government ruling a very anti bush population. However the British people have their own way of dealing with their rogue leaders.
2.5 million people marched through London against Britains involvement in Gulf war 2 and other marches the same day involved another 4 million people. There wishes were ignored. A price Blair is now paying at the ballot box.

The people who inhabit the large northwest-European islands known as the British Isles. These are, without a doubt, one of the greatest ethnic groups of people in the entire world. The nation known as the United Kingdom (or Great Britain) use to own a great majority of the earth, with colonies in North America, Africa, Far East Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and subcontinent Asia (India).
In my opinion, the British are a wonderful people, with an awesome culture, beautiful women, the greatest accents, and some of the best bands in the world.
I love the British a lot. I'm very proud to be mostly of British heritage.

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!!!

A group of people who are constantly bashed by redneck, ignorant Americans whose entries are making them look like complete assholes, not the British.
Britian has four countries: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales. NOT JUST ENGLAND. Contrary to popular belief, the British are just as normal as every other nationality. They have better music than most countries (i.e Bloc Party kicks ass), better actors than most countries (Gary Oldman), better books than most countries (Harry Potter) and overall, better than most countries. If you don't like it, go suck on Prince William's balls. If you're American, and you're speaking English, then why in the hell are you bashing them? YOU SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, DUMBASS. Get over yourselfs and show some damn respect
Ignorant asshat: ooo, bad teeth? You must be British! Hahahaha, hack.

Person: ooo, low IQ? You must be an idiot! Fool!
