Jesus christ. What language is he speaking? Caribbean Cockney? - An American commenting on Terry Etim's accent
There is absolutely nothing wrong with having pride in your country and I am very proud to be English as much as people moan here in the UK we forget just how lucky we are, people moan that the NHS is shit try living somewhere without a health service then see how shit the moaners think it is. Also we moan about the government how about living in a country where if you speak out against the governement then you could just "disapear" during the night, or if you dare to protest you get attacked by the army. Some people need to take a step back and look at what we have got.
I would not just be proud of WW2.
The mighty Roman Empire was the most powerful in the world. Julius Caesar notes that our Druids and warlords were always coming over to mainland Europe and causing trouble. To try and sort the problem out he invaded Britain in 55 BC and got his arse spanked by moustache wearing, ale drinking British tribal warriors.
It was nearly 100 years later before the Romans invaded again. Claudius Caesar managed to conquer the south of Britain in 43 AD. This was largely due the southern tribes happily accepting him for political gain, and the rest of the tribes being too busy fighting each other to care about the Romans.
Another great triumph is Ambrosius Aurelianus (alleged brother of Uther Pendragon), who kicked the Saxons arses back in the 5th Century.
We have great pedigree in the art of warfare. With leaders such as Henry V, Wellington, Nelson, Churchill and Jack Churchill to name just a few. This is just warfare, we also have a great pedigree for science and innovation too.
Britain is an amazing country with an amazing past that spans back to at least 11,000 BC. Had we built structures from stone rather than wood (Britain was covered in forest) and maintained written records people would see how great and complex our nation was going back into prehistory.

England (and Britain as a whole) is awesome. Yes, we have a sketchy past but so do most countries. People are cunts regardless of where they come from. Football, Shakespeare, penicillin, the jet engine, the Beatles and the fry-up breakfast. What more do you want? And people are free to say what they want, vote for who they want, do what they want (within reason), worship who they want and fuck who they want (again, within reason). A lot of people around the world don't have the rights that we take for granted.
