A country which must rank as the biggest victim of racism in the modern world. Leonard Maltin gets on his high horse if Mickey Mouse so much as dresses up as a Native American and says 'how', nobody is allowed to mention that Abu Hamza is a twisted terrorist supporter and no-one's allowed to sing 'baa-baa-black-sheep'. And yet Hollywood is busy churning out so-called movies which are really one piece of anti-english racist propaganda after another. The latest, Braveheart, tells the 'true' story of how the heroic Scots beat the evil English murderers. Lol! It's not Mel Gibson's brains that have got him where he is today. I've no doubt that most English and American people would rather live together in peace, but - as in any situation like this - the minority of loudmouths and bigots unfortunately shout loudest and so are heard. Unfortunately those bigots include the UK government. Tony Blair and his clan openly detest England and the English, are busily selling it off, taking away its basic freedoms and putting it under the iron-fist rule of unelected suits in Brussels. The laughability of Blair can be truly seen when you realise he's sucking up to a President who is a retard controlled by arms-dealer and big business puppet-masters. Every time Bush opens his mouth he detracts from the total sum of human intelligence. Some Americans harp on about the murderous British Empire, neatly stepping over the fact that the US is currently acting exactly the same as the British Empire at its worst. The white US population came from countries like England (has anyone noticed how so many of them speak english?) and wiped out entire nations and entire ways of life when they invaded the New World. Regarding the War of Independance, far more people died in the American Civil Wars which followed. For what it's worth, I love New York, thought the people there were very nice. I certainly felt less threatened walking the streets there than in places like London or Luton, which are becoming more like third world slums every day. Returning to the subject of xenophobia, I think it might be an idea if people formed their own opinions rather than relying on propaganda-filled movies which are being used in the same way Hitler and Stalin used films to brainwash the people of their countries.
For the benefit of anyone wishing to imply the English are all semi-literate, whales are marine mammals. Wales is the country attached to England.
A member nation of the United Kingdom. It is part of an island nation in western Europe, which invented football (which we have mixed results in) Rugby (same again) and many other handy things.
Together with Scotish enlghtenment (mainly based in Edinburgh) Welsh raw materials, Irish manpower. The English played a huge part in turning Great Britain into the first truly industrialised nation.
It also (again with the aid of the other home nations) formed the largest empire the world had yet seen. Strangely the English attempts at Empire had been successful but not greatly so, while the Scots had failed in panama. When the two combined however things really took off (strange)
The English also proved themselves to be a strong fighting nation both on sea and land and contrary to popular myth were equal to the other home nation regiments. For some reason many seem to believe that a race of people that sailed across the North sea and took over much of the fertile land of Great Britain and then fought virtualy non stop with Europe, should be considered pansies.
The English are now a hugely mixed group, however as they consider and take pride in their mixed basterdised background (creating a better stronger gene pool) this has had no real negative consequences unless a group is clearly segregating themselves (hence the dislike of the muslim veil)
The English relationship with the rest of the U.K. has been tense for many years in the past due mainly to the constant war...
A brilliant country, from where the following things were introduced to the world: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Black Sabbath, Depeche Mode, Sex Pistols, Coldplay Monty Python, Emily Bronte, Charlotte Bronte, Shakespeare, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, John Lennon, Harry Potter, Elton John, Fawlty Towers, The Office, Blackadder, Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen, John Keats, Lord Byron, Geoffrey Chaucer, William Blake, Charles Dickens, J.R.R. Tolkien, Roald Dahl, Thomas Hardy...
In short, England is the artistic and cultural heart of the world.
"The English language boasts a rich and prominant literary heritage. England has produced a wealth of significant literary figures including William Shakespeare, arguably the most famous in the history of the English language, Daniel Defoe, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf, George Orwell and Harold Pinter. Others, such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Agatha Christie, Enid Blyton and J.K. Rowling have been among the best-selling novelists of the last century. Among the poets, Geoffrey Chaucer, Lord Byron, John Keats, John Milton, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and many others remain read and studied around the world-"-Wikipedia
The homeland of numerous talented musicians.
Me love England, England is best
The best country in the world and probably the most hated for some reason but we dont drink tea all day and we r not all posh, actually i've never met anyone that talks like 'we' do in american films.
England help france in the war and then they sell really dangerous bombs n stuff to argentinians in the falklands war
The finest place on this earth.
England - Love it or leave it.
England the greatest place on Earth
England is an alright country, depending on what part of England you're from it's a nice place to live. Many of Englands sterotypes are untrue or are untrue now for example bad teeth I've never met anyone in real life with black teeth and I've lived in England my whole life. I'm not saying England is the best country in the world because I don't think it is but i don't think it's as bad as most of these definitions are making out.
England is a fun place to live you know!!
Simply, the greatest country in the world. Any negative points said about it, is basically jelousy and every country has equal or far worse points. Britain created the British empire which covered most of the world, and started the industrial revolution which was a turning point in history... Also, our friends in the West, America, uses our language... and along with other countries makes it one of the most spoken languages in history. If it wasn't for England, good ol US of A would be full of native americans, and you woudnt have the necessities you have and take for granted. How great a country must we be, to rule most of the world, and achieving all this even though our country is so small!
WE MAY HAVE A CRAP FOOTBALL TEAM, BUT WE INVENTED FOOTBALL, SO HOW BOUT THAT! in conclusion, England is a phenominal country, and has achieved so much!
"England is so small, but has created so much"
