Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves

Being British is marvellous and something I am very proud of. In respect to all those who are fighting to let us carry on living this way; here are just a few things that I love about Britain.

Remembrance Sunday.

Fish and Chips.

A cup of tea will solve everything.

The stiff upper lip.

Our 'just get on with it' attitude.

Our sense of humour (and the fact the Americans don't get it)

Our love for the underdog.

The fact that we will quite happily ruin someone's dream to vote in Jedward because it goes against what is 'right'.

That we would also let a bumbling Boris Johnson run our glorious capital.

Our love for a sex scandal.

The way we are so hopeless with snow and cold weather although it happens all the time.

The seaside.

Our quirkiness.

Literature - from Shakespeare to J.K. Rowling.

Our music scene.

The greatest football league in the world.

Feel free to add any of the many I have missed.

We will remember them.
