England has been racially criticised and stereotyped by most of the world as being posh and drinking tea every 12 minutes. They DON'T all act like pompous dicks. Theyre NOT all friendly and gentlemen. They DONT go on balls and royal dances all the time. And they DO drink beer and other alcoholic non-tea drinks.
HOWEVER, some are arrogant most of the time by saying that they practically invented art and culture which makes them sound all the more like posh twats (not that all English say that). If Shakespeare and other unamusing cretins like that weren't born in England they would've probably be born somewhere else anyway.
The people who say England is the cultural centre of the world should be beaten by policemen and arrested. They had good people but they gave birth to President Bush's evil sidekick Tony Blair and they have the worst music the world has ever heard. Their British hip hop would make a deafblind's ears bleed, seeing as Dizzee Rascal sounds like shit. They're football team is the worst one ever. And they've got the so-called manly sport of rugby. They have Simon Cowell, whose head looks like a toilet brush and whose tits are bigger than Pamela Anderson's. And their accents are funnier than a Dutchman's and no matter how they try to mask it each and every one of them sounds exactly the same. They brag about how they've invented everything when other countries have stuff that are even more popular and Englandfree. America for example invented REAL hip hop, breakdancing, skateboarding, tons of different genres of music etc.
Plus, if England is so great then why did they let Braveheart kick their asses.
Scotland could kick England's ass! We've got Sean Connery!

A country like any other, with both good and bad people and things.
Sadly it's a country that is subject to rather a lot of racism, as exemplified by most of the posts on this website.
"England stole my country. England enslaved the world. etc. etc."

"No, that was Britain, which includes Scotland and Wales and used to include a few other countries too, and it all happened long before any of us was born".

Get over it.

Terribly difficult to some up briefly, so short and sweet:
One of the greatest nations ever.
Has an outstandingly extensive and fascinating history.
Once controlled virtually the whole world.
Has one of the most amazingingly diverse and exciting capitals in the world.
The English have played a significant role in the development of the arts and sciences throughout the globe.
Thanks to the legacy of the British Empire, the English language is now the world's unofficial lingua franca, while English common law is also the foundation of legal systems throughout the English-speaking countries of the world.
England has a long and rich musical history.
England has remained a central figure of literacy excellence throughout the past few centuries, notably Romanticism and Modernists.

Sir Winston Churchill, Isaac Newton, William Shakespeare and Charles Darwin- some of the most outstanding Englishmen.

Royal motto (French): Dieu et mon droit
(Translated: "God and my right")
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
William Shakespeare

Once a great powerful nation which has ruled more peoples and land than any other country in the history of the world, a much lazier version of the dutch and less cultured as the french. but powerful, cheery, content peoples who live in peace with most countries.. laugh at the americans (who think they won them in the revolutionary war, but it was truely the french) and secretly love the french and germans. who else could send convicts and criminals to a huge barren land full of desert and turn it into a huge succesfull nation? (australia) they invented many things because they were the america of the last century, inventions include:
jet engine
pain killer
modern army
air forces
GMT(greenwhich mean)
mobile phone
origin of species
law of gravity
the anglican church
england is believed to have created the basis of the modern world and it has survived today in the extent of the english language.
"England is one of vast beauty, power and belief. one i am vain of one we must aspire to be!"


"No other nation has inspired me so much as england, creator of the modern world.."
