We all know that we are British (most of us on here)! But what is it that makes people fulfil that typical stereotype of the Brit. Is it our charm? Maybe our charisma? Is it our eccentricity? Post you views on what you thinks makes us British other than the fact that we were born in Britain

If this country is going to the dogs, it is because of this kind of negative attitude.

1/4? More like 1/4000! And a high proportion of people who do leave come back. Seems like you've been watching too much of these 'Buy a house for £100,000 in Spain, without regard for the fact that the average Spanish person earns a third of what a Brit does' programmes.

What makes the Brits British? Their spirit and humour.

An obsession with the weather.

Edit: Just been talking to a neighbour: a pathological obsession with the weather!

They don't leech any more; they possibly contribute billions to the British economy.

Windsor Castle would be owned by a Russain now if it weren't for them.

Does it matter?

BTW - Thanks for the MOD link; I too am a RAF wannabe, but never thought of looking at that site 'til I read your signature. Cheers.
