  1. Good people that have my respect any day. Any of my fellow Americans who trash talk the UK can go to hell. Likewise for any brit who trash talks Americans. Only uneducated and uninformed people(s) trash other nations people. It's okay to speak out against the government, but the government and people are too separate things. Usually these people who trash talk have never visited the other country, thus they judge their whole opinion on skewed media and television.
    Fuck the ignorant assholes from America, UK, and all other countries who try and soil the wonderful ties between all democratic nations. I love all my European ancestors and hope they do the same.
  2. A beautiful country with a lovely culture and people, with that people consisting of incredibly gorgeous women. Great Britain is one of the United States' only true allies. As an American, I am personally proud and happy to have the British as allies. I love the British, they are an awesome people, and have the coolest accents in the world; far better than the [French].
    I am also proud to have over 70% of British blood flowing through my veins. I love the Motherland!
  3. Awesome people, and most of the time the best friend of America. But I'm starting to lose faith on my fellow Yanks if we bash the British like that. They never did anything to us since Napoleon...but they did become one of our greatest allies.
    I'm pretty damn sure they don't say "cheerio" every other word. -_-
  4. someone who comes from uk has two legs , arms, eyes, a head , and a nose a set of teeth not unlike your own and doest really mind americans but they seem to mind the british quite alot
    "my passport says i am british"
  5. The British are a country of awesome people who have invented many things and has written great literature. If it wasn't for Britain, the world would be totally different, I mean, Americans really can't bad-mouth Britain as if it wasn't for them, there would be no United States! However, Americans are just as awesome of a group of people as the British. Americans have helped the British, the British have helped Americans, British have made things, Americans have made things, Britain has been a superpower, America is currently a superpower.... seriously, America and Britain, becaise landmass, are equal. They are definetly the best two countries of the world, and without them, i dont even want to think what the world would be like!!
    Is one needed? For real, do you not get my point?>>
  6. I'm proud of being british, i'm sure your proud of being patriotic too of your country. I also thought the americans were our friends...obviously not, they seem to hate us for some reason judging by the amount of crap isults posted in this dictionary...
    personally, I was interested into the amount of directed hate towards us by our american friends and thought why? apart from our recent international relations with you with invasions against terror and other types, I thought, as a british citizen, that things were normal but instead a find abuse flying between minority groups of the urban dic-tionary from both our nations. minority groups on your side seem to think that "we go around thinking we own the place", what bollucks, our empire days are over and only hope that it caused as much good as it did bad. also, you seem to think we live in a mary poppins world with plummy accents; yeah, our accents are weird but we're proud of that :) saying all this to a british guy and the remarks about bad teeth would just piss him off, becuase it stereotyping at it's worst. I have a lot of american friends who arn't like certain groups in this dictionary, which is simpy, displaying the bad minorities of both our nations peace people :)
  7. the only race in the world who make a sport out of making fun of ourselves and each other. Heres its called slagging and it means you dont get beat up for making a joke about someone. we also complain about everything :weather, schools, food, work, tescos etc. not alot of people like us but hey if we didnt exist neither would a lot of other nations e.g united states. Also not everyones accent is posh. in fact only a handful of people do. But every accent here is unique and unless you're from that place you probably wont understand a word that person is saying!
    British slang: What a minger Chav! Scally!
  8. A union of four nations, England, Scotland, wales and Northern Ireland. Former world super power. But thanks to largely friendly links with it's former colonies still can hold a lot of clout over international opinion. With in these nations there is a very rich cultural, historical and enthic diversity that attracts over 35 million visitors a year. Sadly it's population are now mainly disillusioned with its internal political system and as a result we have a very pro Bush government ruling a very anti bush population. However the British people have their own way of dealing with their rogue leaders.
    2.5 million people marched through London against Britains involvement in Gulf war 2 and other marches the same day involved another 4 million people. There wishes were ignored. A price Blair is now paying at the ballot box.
  9. The people who inhabit the large northwest-European islands known as the British Isles. These are, without a doubt, one of the greatest ethnic groups of people in the entire world. The nation known as the United Kingdom (or [Great Britain]) use to own a great majority of the earth, with colonies in North America, Africa, Far East Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and subcontinent Asia (India). In my opinion, the British are a wonderful people, with an awesome culture, beautiful women, the greatest accents, and some of the best bands in the world.
    I love the British a lot. I'm very proud to be mostly of British heritage.
  10. British does not mean English. Britain consists of four nations: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. NEVER call an Irishman "british" because he (or she) will hurt you. We LOVE laughing at ourselves and everyone else.(We call this "taking the piss".) We have a pretty evil sense of humour, but that's the best kind! We excel at black comedy, sarcasm, satire, understatement, and comedy in geneal. Alot of people don't 'get' our humour, but i suppose that's down to cultural differences. We're proud of our sense of humour. We don't all speak posh, like the queen. There are SO many accents in the UK. I've lived in Britain all my life, and I've only met a handful of posh people. I hate that people think we're all upperclass and aristocratic,. Not true ATALL! We don't sit around having tea parties, with china tea cups, and frilly tablecloths. We don't use words like "cheerio", we DO NOT love the queen.
    You wish you were British
