    Everyone can be arrogant, we're no more so than anyone else really.

    I agree, in theory. But, actually, every patriotic person I've met in everyday life was either very close-minded and arrogant, or a crazy fascist. I know not everyone is like that, but I've yet to meet someone who wasn't, so I got the impression the majority is.

    I've noticed the British being very arrogant with respect to their military capabilities. Many still seem to think that Britain is as powerful on a global scale as when the Empire was at its peak. That's seriously not the case anymore.

    Why, because I'm making a point on a forum.

    Another attitude of the Brits, freedom of speach is only when it suits them. We can't say anything about the country now. :rolleyes:

    I've seen worst things said on this forum and mods allow it. Yet I'm trying to make a valid point, I honestly couldn't give a f*** if people get angry.

    You love British people so much you cling to us like a parasite. and I don't care if you were born here, head lice are also born from eggs on peoples hair.

    If you hate Britian and the British then detatch yourself from us and go and parasite of some other nation.

    Useless and irrelevant post. Good try at turning this into a debate about feminism and how it never achieved anything.
