You must be pure white European race to be British. Being born here means nothing. Living here for a thousand years doesn't change anything, if you're not pure white, you're not British, full stop.

When someone does something rude in a public place, and you do the "tut" behind their back. Then you know you're british.

When someone prevents you from getting your tea, you wage a war with them.

Some people whose parents immigrate to Britain and they are born here say they are British what would you say about that? I think you should acknowledge your heritage I hate it when people's parents immigrate and they are born in let's say Britain and they consider themselves British and know nothing of their heritage or culture.

There are thousands of people who were born and raised in England who don't have a passport.

Its more than just being born here you need white european dna. Otherwise its like being black and being born in china and calling yourself chinese you would never really be chinese you need the dna.

Speaking English with a British accent, drinking tea in public, and using the phrase "bloody mess" in contexts that have nothing to do with butcher shops, battlefields, or surgery rooms. They also need to know how to curtsey, and how to address members of the royal family or the nobility properly. Things like calling a King "Majesty", a Prince "Highness", and so on all the way down to "Lordship". You also need to have a stiff upper lip.

At least, that's the Hollywood definition of being British. Hehe.

I didn't say there wasn't. I was born and raised here and I don't have one.

When you apologise for everything even it is not your fault.
