    More to the point, why should we not? I for one love that Britain is multicultural. Why do you view homogeneity as a good thing?
    Doesn't work, this whole "we all live together happily" idea of Britain you have going on in your head won't happen due to Religion and the problems it brings to the table.

    I am not British. Anyway, your heritage is nothing to be proud of tbh. You got to your mum's ovary by chance.
    I have no problem if someone admires their ancestors and loves their heritage though, I just don't get the ''proud'' idea....

    Living in the most diverse part of the UK, south London, I can testify that it does work. Forget you blinkered ****ers who don't want bangin curry or hundreds of languages. Neanderthal bigot.

    Do you mean just sign over land that people died for in the past? I don't think so.

    Anyway, I would just like to say to you that being a fair and open society is what everyone wants, but this does not mean treating the majority like dirt.
    I meant metaphorically let go of the Empire. The British Empire still very much informs the idea of a 'British identity' which is detrimental to the inclusion of people not classified as 'white British' into society. We shouldn't keep clinging to something that has ceased to exist and is responsible for the superiority complex some British people seem to have (i.e. OP).

    I don't know where you get the idea that the majority in the country are treated like dirt, because as far as I can see, it is still a disadvantage to be born into certain minority ethnic groups in this country. A fair society is one where everyone's needs are catered for, and this isn't happening as long as policy makers are happy to take a colourblind approach to 'race relations'.

    So you think that some races should get treated better than others? That is racist by the way and is exactily why I said that the majority get treated like dirt.

    Taking a colour-blind approach is what is needed in a fair, non-racist society.

    According to Wikepedia, "At its height it [the British Empire] was the largest empire in history and, for over a century, was the foremost global power."

    It's so great to be a Briton we are so proud.

    Britain and America are united as one. America shares our language.

    Who cares? in 50 years time, India will rule the world. I reckon the UK may not even exist then (Scotland at least could be independent).

    As things stand now though, the UK is still one of the major countries in the world in a lot of ways. So is obviously a good thing.

    Actuallly very different to the Nazi's.

    Anyway the British empire is one of the main reasons the slave trade was ended

    No. The Industrial Revolution ended slavery.

    There's certainly worse places in the world than Britain. So I suppose I should consider myself fortunate in that regard.
