    I need to find out from students some views please.

    It would be helpful for you to tell me:

    1) What are stereotypical "English" characteristics? E.g. the queen, drinking tea, fish and chips.

    2) What sort of things would you think of when just thinking of England generally? E.g. obesity problem, multiracial community, typical types of people i.e. chavs, preps etc.

    Thanks so much for your help

    Lmao I remember when we got asked this in school for some dumb study skills day or something.

    My favourite responses were:

    "Loads of ****ing Asians."

    And in response to British monuments:

    "Birmingham Central Mosque."



    Miss school lol.

    Stereotypical "English" characteristics; unemotional, sarcastic humour, intelligent, posh, non confrontational, "proper", proud, patriotic.

    When I think of England; chavvy, loud, obnoxious, racist, drinking, ignorant, lazy, work shy, unhealthy, intolerant.....

    and so on.

    Basically all it was before, either fighting the french, or if they're not fighting the french, the welsh, scottish or irish.

    The english empire has shrunk so much now that it's started dividing it's own society up into classes for lack of another country to do it in, and what's better now, they have people that aren't white emigrating from the east into britain so they can still be intolerant without having to sail half way across the world.

    I'll believe enland is a tolerant nation when a black person marries into the royal family or a member of the royal family has a child with severe disabilities. It just isn't going to happen, and if it does, it's going to be covered up pretty damn fast.

    You can neg me instead of providing any evidence of me being incorrect.

    What is English about drinking tea, fish and chips and the Queen?

    They are all characteristics of Britain in general, I would say. They are not distinctly English.
