What do I think of the English? The one that sleeps on the other side of the bed has cold feet, and steals the covers.

West Country lass. Born in Plymouth during WW II, Army brat, grew up in Calstock on the border between Devon and Cornwall.

Shoud have thought about that before. Damned Cornish pirates! THAT'S why she steals the covers!

Indeed.

Love-hate it may be but its that 'taking the piss out of each other' that both our countries seem to do by sheer reflex. It's good natured abuse which only reveals an underlying deep affection...plus we did swipe your system of Govt, judges with funny wigs, CORRECT method of spelling, ability to understand the mysteries of cricket etc

In my parents day every Australian with a passport had a British one, and England was fondly known as "home". Like Aus says, even if we became a Republic, nothing could diminish the basic affection.


Plus we can always collectively pay out on the Kiwis, can't we?

Met plenty of Transplants. All were no different except for an accent. I dated a SMOKIN hot English chick for a while. That accent can cover up just about any short comings.

I agree with JD. There is no back down in your brits thats cool.

I can't believe that you put up with all that pounding by the Germans in WWII then elect a Parliment that has been doing the same thing to you for the past 50 years! You Britts have plenty of grit!!

I have nothing against the brits, I acttully have alot of respect for you all and all that your pepole have contributed to the world as far as invention and other things. The one problem I have is that you all are letting your country be over run by those who hate you and wish to destory you, OH wait thats here in the U.S. also!

I've been drinking with Brits, and let me tell you, you dont want to get into a drinking jag or conetst with these guys or gals. They put their pints and quarts away in bristol fashion without blinking an eye. My lineage is half Scotts and half German and I would think I could keep up with these British guys when is comes to drinking hard spirits but they have always kicked my arse every time I've tried.

The Lovely Mrs lived in England for 3 years before I met her. Accent was delightful. She says English cuisine leaves a lot to be desired.
