An informal gathering of opinions about how this site views the English.

I, myself, am English, but as I said in another post, you won't catch me waving a flag or singing "patriotic" songs (partly because I can't hold a note in a bucket) but even if I could, I wouldn't, so nur!.

What do you think of the English? (Not to be taken too seriously)
They’re all wankers

@smiler2012 no matter how bad we are, we aren't stupid enough to have Biden 🤪🤪🤪

I'm not an anglophobe but a misanglist. Give our marbles back 🙄
Like everywhere, both good and bad are represented. I have English friends online and in rl. But this meme tickles me, because there’s a bit of truth to it:

My grandfather flew for Britain during WWII, but turned down the offer of citizenship after the war. My mother remains a proud Anglo-Polish. I was born in England and am proud to be British. But I recently obtained a Polish passport because I am European also 🇬🇧🇵🇱🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

I like you guys, with your tea and biscuits, and "Lorrys" and all.
Most Britains I've come across on Sw, and back in the EP days, are all very nice people.
@calicuz " jolly good sports"
I'm English and I think that the sort of English people that others would hate are the same ones that we hate anyway 🤔
Freeranger · M
Well....there we have it then. And you've succumbed to the bludgeoning of popular society's white guilt about who you are.
I'm a few ancestors removed, but my family is from UK and Scandinavia. Both are for the most part, white. Develop your spine, realize that, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being born who you are despite what the engineers of socialism try to make you feel guilty about.
Embrace yourself.....be happy you live in a free society.....that you have options in life. Trash any feeling of guilt.

@Freeranger What on was that all about? Who are you addressing?
DrPhibes · M
I wish the French won in America. At least it would give me an excuse for not bathing and for smoking

'Royal Britannia, Marmalade and Jam,
5 Chinese crackers up ya ass,
Going bang bang bang bang baaang!'
Ontheroad · M
They're pretty cool... except they drink tea and are confused about what a biscuit is 😁. Oh yeah, they make superior mystery movies.
Dacrowman · 70-79, M
@Ontheroad we don't all drink tea and we do know what a biscuit is if you confused check the word in dictionary
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
I am somewhat of an Anglophile. But I will say I like them because I'm not the type of person who loves countries or people in them without critical thought
JohnOlinger · 41-45, M
I Love British People Especially the ones on here & Tik Tok You Guys Are Nice People I would love to visit your Country
pikminboy · 26-30, M

LondonTights · 31-35, F

ninalanyon · 61-69, T
@LondonTights I hope you visited some parts of the country outside those two huge conurbations. Neither is exactly representative of the rest of the country.
SteelHands · 61-69, M
Stuffy sort convinced their farts are a bleedin givt to the table rable as say shay.

Some thos blokes should just add a cardinal hat to that sissy skirt.
Dacrowman · 70-79, M
@SteelHands can you possibly translate that into english
SteelHands · 61-69, M
The English speak more clearly than us "basket" of "deplorables."

In case you're wondering where the pretentious witch picked that one up.

The sniffer also, just like any pretentious people, likes to steal political comments too. You may have heard about his previous plagiarisms. He's famous for it over here in America, don'tcha know.
Ive meet some really cool English folk and some not so much. As far as music goes, you cant beat em. A large part of my ancestors came from England, so I do have a soft spot for em.
ServantOfTheGoddess · 61-69, M
You lot have the best accents. Also some of my favourite authors. Plus the double-decker buses are cute.
Daisyrose · F
I’m English. English people generally aren’t the friendliest but I love England as a country.
pride49 · 26-30, M
Im reading Harry Potter with a British reader thing. Sounds better. Maybe I'll pick up the snobby accent
Adogslife · 61-69, M
I’m marrying one this July. We’ve been together for five years. I still think the accent is sexy af.
StevetheSleeve · 31-35, M
I was surprised by the number of hot Brit women here, honestly. Quite the fun bunch.
Or, at least the few who answer this questions poll.
whowasthatmaskedman · 70-79, M
Most English people with "get up and go", get up and go....😷
Virgo79 · 61-69, M
Theres good and bad everywhere🤷‍♂️
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F
I think they are Brilliant
Lilymoon · F
I like 'em 😜
I'll pop the kettle on
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
I'm okay with English people.
Yeah, there's some shitty history on my mother's side with the British government, but I think the average English person is alright.
Plus I grew up on your comedy.
U mean English speaking ppl or like ppl from great Britain?
pianoplayingsteve · 26-30, M
Unless you'd go to a doctor to be treated for it, I wouldn't refer to something as a "phobia"
