    No way! I disagree with that! We have much better sitcoms and music! Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, The Beatles, Queen, The Cure etc! They revolutionised music!!!!

    And the sitcoms are so much better- monty Python, Allo Allo, Fawlty towers, IT crowd, the inbetweeners, black adder etc!

    Class system no other country has a class system
    Royal family hello it's 2016 not the 15th century
    Lmao no class system anywhere else? Are you sure you left the country, because I'm almost certain there's not a place in the world that doesnt have some form of a class system, and if there is, then you must share it with all of us so we can all move there posthaste :ahee: . Plus the royal family bring in a significant amount of revenue in tourism, so they're definitely worth keeping.

    It feels great that I was born in the ancient capital of England. Didn't know it was an upper class area until I moved out of there during my primary school years. Hoping to buy a house there in the future and retire there.

    You'll probably get sneered at for that but it's true, self producing that at the age of 17 is amazing. And it was actually original as well.

    I consider I Luv U to be in the same sort of category as Anarchy In The UK.

    Post edit: I'd include Original Pirate Material also.

    One thing which no one else normally understands (as in other nationalities) is our humour!
