I heard that Luxembourg hates the English, but I think that was just Liechtenstein feeling salty.

Never heard that being said personally. However, if it has been said, I'd assume it'd be due to the British Empire's long history with colonization and the map BlueIndigoViolet showing the areas of the world that were ever part of the British Empire is telling.

Also, I heard that in Ireland Anglophobia possibly is somewhat rooted within Irish nationalism, which was especially catalyzed after the start of the twentieth century after the Celtic Revival movement.

We would love to get out of the EU, which country do you hail from by the way?

Even when the UK leaves the EU, the most commonly spoken language as a first or second-language will be English.

Yes, that explains one of the biggest reasons for France's disliking of us.

I was merely responding to your claim that "you're not a cultural + social part of europe. you voted out, so get out. "

The UK is a net exporter of literature and music. More than half of the top 20 songs in the Swedish charts are in English.

No, Sweden is the third largest music exporter in the entire world. That's not even per capita.
German philosophy.
Russian literature.
Also, doesn't that say something? Half????? We're a small country with a population of 9 million? And half our top songs are in Swedish?
America is a much bigger exporter of literature and music than you are. People have largely forgotten y'alls significance in the world and this will simply be reinforced through Brexit

1. Entitlement = expecting everybody else to speak English. English people regularly go on holiday to Spain and Budapest without bother learning a couple of polite phrases and speak no other languages than English and they give zero ****s. Your colonial entitled mindset still characterizes your way of perceiving the world. What that guy said merely reflected that.
2. Miseducation = people may speak a few phrases in English, but unless you're Scandinavian/Dutch, it may not be more than a few phrases. The best spoken language within the EU is French/German.

also, this is not all british people? you're welsh, that's cool. you're irish, great. you're scottish, wonderful? you english mate? boo.

Think of how many knobheads you know. Then think of how many of them are English.
