    I'd think the USA is the most hated world-wide, by a long stretch, no idea why you left them off.

    I probably would have picked an Eastern Nationality, not because I dislike them but because of the general British animosity towards the East these days due to terrorism.

    Well, England seems to have the same mentality :erm: Regardless of whether they are tourists or not, many people seem to think that EVERYONE can speak English.

    I'm not saying that people shouldn't -- unless of course they are speaking to another person of their mother tongue. Look at how many British people emigrate to Spain and France and don't actually ever bother to learn the language! I just don't think we have room to complain, when we do it in other countries.

    I would say America, I personally do not hate them at all but a lot of other people seem to. Also people seem to be hating on us quite a bit, probably more because of our relationship with America than anything else. After that I would say the French...because they're French. :p:

    Not so much in Britain but in central Europe and Scandinavia they immigrate en masse and are responsible for a lot of the crime. Like black people in England I suppose.

    Well I am Scandinavian and can agree that they do immigrate a lot but I don't really hate them for that.. I blame the government for letting them in..

    well maby it's wrong to hate the whole english nationality, but a lot of them goes on my nerves
    1) when it comes down to sport (well hockey anyway), it's the english captains that help decide on GB teams, so us welsh don't get a mention, this pisses me off, coz I know a lot of the welsh girls on my team are way better than the english ones who were chosen!!
    2) Again about hockey, when playing in Loughbrough representing wales with my college against different regions in england, all the reffs were against us, and sent 3 of our players off and disallowed my goal!!!
    3) They think we only speak welsh to insult them - but it;s our first language, and we have the right to speak it!
    4) They think Wales is a part of England
    5) The tourist that comes up here over the summer are just SNOBS!! and think themselves to be much better than you, coz they have a yot!!
    6) The 'english' people at school would refuse to speak welsh to you, it's the language of this bloody country - suppsoe they did end up as loners and got bullied for that though!

    I could go ona nd on.....
    but as I say I do like some english people!! but the majority is UCHH
    Oh come of it, only 20% of the population speak Welsh and its ridiculous that so much public money goes in to all those bilingual signs. Welsh and English hold equal legal status but the main language is English.

    3) some people are just paranoid, and I am really sceptical that it happens all that often.

    4) I really don't know anyone that does :/. And I know some really thick people.

    6) I could understand if someone moved there, to a place where people seldom spoke English, but if we have no intention, then I don't see why we should make an effort to understand it? You said it yourself, you are not a part of England, you are just a neighbouring country. But then that is the same with any country, I moved to Germany, I speak German, there is no relevance in me learning Afrikaans when chances are, I will never be in a position where I will HAVE to speak this language.

    6) Maybe they were just nervous or felt embarrassed because their Welsh was not that good? It is not easy moving to a new country, or even to a new school, it is even harder when you don't speak the language. 6 weeks in not a lot, I have been studying Greek for 6 weeks and I cannot even string a sentence together yet. Plus, if you bullied him for struggling with the language, I sincerely doubt you would have been more forgiving if he spoke in really broken Welsh and couldn't get past asking the time or telling you his name and birth date.
    there was a thread on TSR and a lor of people said that wales was a pointless country, welsh was a pointless language and that it was a part of england!!
    I know a lot of the welsh don't speak welsh, but I do, and it's not pointless! I like being Bilingual.
    Plus I DID NOT BULLY anybody!!! just to get that clear, people did get bullied but I was not a part of it!! I understand what you mean with moving, coz I moved highschool and everything in year 10. But the Q was why don't i Like some of the english, and unfortunetly one of the reasons is the lack of them trying to learn welsh, and it frustrates me coz no mater how much i tell people, that I did all my A leves in welsh, I never speak english, they still think that english is the language we speak but it isn't!! Where I live you have one english school and 7 welsh highschools, so most of us do speak welsh, probably out of the 20% that do speak welsh 15% live where I live!

    and somebody negged me for being racist?? when one of the first points I did was about the english being racist against the welsh when it comes down to my sport which is hockey :rolleyes:

    1 - the English captains are probably better informed than you - they're the captains for a reason

    2 - You blame typical welsh mining town slum violence and hotheadedness on a bias referee. Don't be silly.

    3 - Welsh is a stupid language, there's no reason for you to speak it, and as you are bilingual I can't imagine why you'd speak Welsh in a group which had some non Welsh speaking people in it. It's like taking some people aside without a sorry and whispering in their ears.

    4 - It's hardly a republic lol - it's part of Great Britian, which is effectively England with all the knobs on. We govern you, your not an independant country.

    5 - Wales is notable for it's bad weather and it's mines. Often poor people assume that rich people are being arrogant, when they are just being confident and normal.

    6 - You should speak English. Why would an English person learn Welsh, it's a useless language with no international acclaim. It takes very little skill to learn

    You sound like a silly person. Get back in your mine.

    I'm living in the Middle East at the moment, and I would have to say that out here it is the Israeli's. Americans and the Brits are only hated because the former support them, and the latter took the land from the Palestinians to give to them.
    But as a general pet hate, I've always hated America, not the people (because they're generally very friendly and a good laugh) but more so the corrupt government.
