Oh so British
One of the British national daily newspapers is asking readers "what it means to be British?". Some of the emails are hilarious but this is one from a chap in Switzerland...

"Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. And the most British thing of all?

Suspicion of anything foreign."

All apart from the Belgium beer... who would drink Belgium beer in an Irish pub? Really! ;)

I've been trying to find out which newspaper it was printed in... I want to read the other responses!

Dunno, I heard it from someone on a local mailing list.
