21 Signs You've Been British Too Long

21 Signs You've Been British Too Long | Global Politics - Yemen | Scoop.it
If all of these things apply to you, you may have been British too long. No need to panic.

 

(Many of these are from British Problems , which is a helpful support group if you need it.)

earthdog58's insight:

 

Why is this Global Politics?

 

Well, because we, the British, are the pinnacle of human evolution. We are simply the best.

 

That's it.

 

And everybody else knows that - but just won't admit it out aloud.

 

OK, we have had a line of increasingly crappy, moronically stupid, and morally bankrupt, governments, who have been an embarrassment to us - but which country can say they haven't? That is the nature of government - they are always knobs who spoil things for the rest of use. When they were in school, politicians were the smarmy, kiss-arse, teacher's pets who asked for extra homework; nicked people'sTwix; toadied around the bullies and fed them targets; or who snitched on the kid who drew the boobs on the blackboard when the teacher nipped out of the room for a a quick gin.

 

But the British people? We are the best.

 

And honestly, while this Buzzfeed link is funny, one can NEVER be British for too long.

 

Look at this one too: http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/how-to-raise-a-proper-british-child

 

The more British people there are in the world, the better the world will be.

 

Actually.

You have to love diplomats, eh?
