Being British is embracing the diversity of this great country.
Every part of the World is represented here in one way or another. This is the largest melting pot in the World and we should be proud of it. Why?
Why, because it gives us the vital opportunity to see that we are all fundamentally different but culturally different at the same time. For centuries whole coutries have fought eachother for being different. By living together side by side we will see we are all the same...

Being British means getting ripped of by an incompetent government, who tax you to the hilt in order to try and cover the colossal amount of money they waste on a daily basis.
Being British means being the dumping ground for people who are cannot live in their own country, and having to pay to support these people whether we want to or not.
Being British means being told we have the right to free speech, so long as the words are government approved.
Being British sucks.
