    Take it with a pinch of salt. I get called about being 'posh' all the time. I even get some funny neg rep comments of losers. No need to take it to heart, you know we love you
    But you are posh

    Better than being a chav.

    i was just wondering that. sisyphus's other reasons are just laughable. if he/she moved away from Britain, (s)he'd miss it like hell, (s)he know (s)he would
    I have been away from Britain for substantial periods of time during my life, cumulatively amounting to several years, and I can't say I ever really missed it.

    ('miss it like hell' probably quite an apposite phrase, actually.)

    good thread syphilus...Luton as your first reason for hating the British! You picked one of the places most populated by non-British... like my paddy family.

    Because the British put up with it. Those people that are left behind, unlike the Americans and the Australians*, are those who haven't had the imagination to leave.

    I don't even have to look at the websites to tell you you're wrong. The Irish have the largest proportion of ginger haired people. And as more Irish people live in Eire than Britain...
    Scotland has a higher proportion of ginger people than Ireland (and a larger population); Norn Iron ihas a similar %age to the Republic. But yes, as England has a smaller percentage of ginger people than Eire, the %age figure for the UK as a whole is probably 2nd to Ireland (but the absolute number is higher).

    I think you'll find that the vast majority of the population of Luton are British (though of some of them might not be white British).

    I was always under the impression that a lot of Irish and Italians went to Luton in the 60s? Not sure how many of those would class themselves as Brits.

    That might be so. That doesn't stop the place looking like a scene from a Kipling novel though.

    Lots of Irish. Not that many Italians. They all live in Bedford.

    Still it proves my point a bit... I can only think of Liverpool, Machester and Kilburn that have as many Irish?

    Get out of town! I was going to add something along those lines to my thread as a knew there'd be some smart Alec but my nicotine addiction beckoned me away...
    Anyway who cares I have lots of great memories of Luton... going to the Arndale, throwing pennies into the hideous flamingo fountain; going to that big park place, eating rank stale biscuits at my nans and getting £1000 worth of coppers from her to thrown in to the hideous fountain. ah... those were the days. Luton rules.

    Haha! I know Luton very well. I spent 5 years at Luton College of HE (now laughingly renamed the "University of Luton")

    God! That Flamingo! Wasn't it hideous? A giant papier mache splodge of pink designed and constructed (or so it seemed) by a group of pre-schoolers. PLEASE.......tell me it's no longer in existance!
