It's weird thinking that people may or may not like you because you fell out of a vagina on a certain patch of land

User avatar #113 to #10 - ruebezahl (10/15/2013) [-]
I don't even think that many people outside of Great Britain remember the British Empire or speak about the British Empire. "They hate us because of the British Empire" would be the UK equivalent of America's "They hate us for our freedom".

Let me tell you though that Germans don't really hate brits. I guess most of us are still rather surprised that the rest of Europe manages not to thoroughly hate us. It's purely a football thing. Every country needs a rival, and for us, England is close to the top on the rivalry list (for me, personally, it's the Netherlands, as I still remember Rijikard spitting on Voeller, but I digress). It might have originated from the Wembley Goal in 1966, though I have to admit that we got some payback for that at the last World Cup.

Not counting oceans. Britain was the largest Empire ever, though not by much. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_empires

The Mongol's came damn close but they never really controlled it. They conquered the states of eastern Europe and Asia and were essentially unbeatable when they were all united by a common leader but it was doomed to fail from the start. The British Empire was larger still, more organized and actually in control for the most part.

Man, I don't care. I'm proud to be British. Not English- British. That includes the Scots and the Welsh and **** too. You're all mah ****** and I love you.

I don't think EVERYONE hates us though. Scotland and Ireland do because of the geographical location (same reason Canada hate US etc... it's a harmless rivalry these days).

Germany hate us because although we were with other countries when we won WW2, we are the only ones who CONSTANTLY remind them everytime we play them at the football.

That's football guys. I'm a season ticket holder at Derby County FC and for 90 minutes every saturday, I have a strong hatred for whoever we are playing. When the game is over, I couldn't give a **** . Passionate sports fans is all this really is.
User avatar #255 to #243 - sketchE ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
i think the reason the scottish and irish hate you is a bit more than location. and germany hates you because youre one of the countries that put them in a position where marks were being used as building blocks

Derby fan? or Dundee fan? I know he was popular at Dundee. I can see why, great player. Bit unfortunate for him that he's arrived at the club this year, just got used to the new boss, and then the boss gets the sack. And now he's injured for 6 weeks with the injury he had at the end of last season, which is recurring now...

Poor guy's getting it tough.

I dunno, we tried to breed out the Scots, then hung, drew and quartred William Wallace. I understand them being mad.
Ireland, well we were dicks who used the power of Northern Ireland to put pressure on the Republic.

As for the references to WWII in football; England's team once did a Nazi salute when playing in Germany. There's a picture of it.

The rest of EU can go **** themselves because whatever England has done to them, they stared! France invaded, Sweden invaded, Italy (as Rome) invaded, Germany (as Saxony) invaded. Don't get me wrong; I love the culture England has as a result, it makes languages interesting and history even moreseo, but European countries have no right hating us just for getting our own back for centuries of being us over and royally ******* us.
User avatar #356 to #284 - fukkendragonite (10/15/2013) [-]
The salute thing was in 1938, before anyone knew what was happening there.

User avatar #171 to #170 - TheHutchie (10/15/2013) [-]
One of my best friends is American. I've known him five years over Xbox Live and here on FJ and we've never met, but I trust him a lot more than many people I actually know.

America's a beautiful country, scenically at least, but I think that the whole "best country in the world" thing is ruining it. Nowhere else is so insecure they need to throw up their flag at every school, government building, prison, etc. If it really were such a great country, surely that wouldn't be necessary?

Also, you can't take two steps in any allied country without seeing American TV, products, adverts and such. It's all very "in your face".

In short, I like the American landscape, but not a lot of the attitude.

Is that the flag of the Cook Islands or something?
I know there's an ex-empire territory that has a flag like that...Perhaps with les strips and minus the NI cross.
#289 to #281 - tonygd (10/15/2013) [-]
Its the ensign of the East India Company

These days England doesn't really care about who hates them.
We have declared war on so many countries throughout history and taken control of them so that it doesn't really make much of a difference. Nobody likes being controlled and likes the thought of being free.

every country in red has been declared war on by England

There are only 22 countries that England has not invaded (or rather, put hostile soliders on the territory- invading defenseless island isn't really an invasion at all, just a takeover).
Sweden, Belarus and Luxemburg are three of them.

I dunno if this makes me proud to be English.

I say meh. No reason to be ashamed. We did what we did.
not bad for a small island that used to be invaded by everyone else.

I guess the smaller are the fiestier. Hense Denmark's pissing contest with Sweden.

Most popular countries in the world 2013:
1. Germany
2. Canada
3. United Kingdom (Scotland and England together btw, seems like people forget around here)
4. Japan

I'm Irish, but What's with the English being blamed? During the British Empire, per capita, there were more Scottish administrators, officers and imperial civil servants than in any other home nation. Not that i'm bashing them for it, i think the British empires legacy is hugely debatable i find the modern approach that 'British Empire is evil!' is really outdated and ignores **** loads of history. Just as one example of a beneficial legacy of the British empire is today's ideas of liberties, Republicanism (obviously dates back to the Romans but was very much thought of 'an Italian thing' before the English Civil War) and human rights have direct roots back to English philosophers during the 17th, and without the British Empire these ideas would not have been exported so widely.

Also i find it really awesome that the axis powers from WWII are now some of the most popular countries on the planet, its kinda cool, good for you Germany and Japan.

Also Canada. (which however much you try to ignore it is a direct British offshoot)


PS. Sorry for the history rant, just finished doing a year studying the British Empire.

Lecture over.

Scotland didn't chose to go to war though. It was westminster or the royal family that chose to invade, both of which are based in London (England).

Other than ship building and coal mining (For military use) there wasn't much else job wise in Scotland, other than to join the military.

There was always plenty of Scots in Parliament and the Scots were the great economic philosophers that fueled the Empire eg. Adam Smith, the founder of modern capitalism. British Empire was a joint enterprise, just England had a bigger population.

I half agree with you here, but see the whole "if the decision was made in England then it must be english" thing kinda irritates me, just cos a decision is made in London, doesn't mean Scotland (and Wales and Northern Ireland) have no say in it. Just a wee thing that gets on my nerves

I'm Irish too and find it ridiculous when the Irish hate the English " just because". Almost every country has a dark history. You shouldn't hate people ancestors because of the troubles. To be honest if England didn't make the roads and buildings and sewage,electricity and water lines underground. I don't think Ireland would be the same country it is today. Let's not forget only recently Britain bailed us out in the recession.

"Canada however much you try to ignore it is a direct British offshoot"

tell that to the other half of canada you ignorant ****
#212 to #154 - flange (10/15/2013) [-]
22% is French Canadian. Canada is still a British offshoot, the French lost it in the 1750s.

I'd have to agree with you there mate. Only through the most turbulent parts of British history have Scotland and England been real enemies. For the rest of the time we were like bros (The independence crowd would hate me for saying that).
I think the root of the Scotland vs England "thing" of recent years stems from scots having nothing to hate. We are a pretty contentious people and England is just the nearest (and easiest) nation to take a swing at. Just as English are seen doing with France.
As for people's selective memory about the empire nobody seems to remember that all of the advancements in technology brought by the empire.

Did even half a month pass since this was on top 10 posts? And still the same discussions in the comments,why do people even vote up reposts like this? I have nothing against older and funny reposts,but this is neither of that..

All of England are blamed for things that happened in the past, when a completely different set of englishmen walked our land
User avatar #282 - Loppytaffy (10/15/2013) [-]
Why is everyone so sore of England? Sure, they had an empire.
But so did France (many of them), and Spain, and Germany (or rather, than Germanic states), Hungary, Austria, Austria and Hungary together, Sweden, Denmark, Turkey, Greece, Crete and Egypt, among others.

And most of those invaded England in the first place and England just had to roll over and let it happen because they were so week at the time.

European countries made England what it is.

Denmark... Empire.. Really?
User avatar #303 to #291 - Crusader (10/15/2013) [-]
Eh, closer to a cluster of fiefdoms that were fought over.
User avatar #297 to #291 - Loppytaffy (10/15/2013) [-]
Yep.
How the hell do you think they got Greenland? Also they controlled Sweden and Finland for a time. Sweden be like " **** this" and took Finland and left, going to Estonia and Latvia (who were, at the time, under Poland's rule) for help. Sweden left with half cutsody.
Sweden also declared that, at the time, Finland was not a country, just a part of Sweden.

Then Russia took Finland and Sweden was pissed. At the time, it was the coldest winter for 100 years, and Denmark (and Norway) declared war on Sweden. Sweden did even have any naval strength, so Swedish troops marched down and around, through Netherlands, expecting to meet hostile troops because of the Dutch and Danish trading friendship at the time.
I dunno what happened there, but Sweden got through, and lacking any ships, marched the army across the frozen sea to Denmark.

Many Danish pants were soiled that day.
User avatar #367 to #297 - suckittrebek (10/15/2013) [-]
Indeed.. But then lets define an empire.
Because if my memory serves me correct (which it might not, since I enjoy the occasional beer) - Denmark "got" Greenland because Erik Den Røde (Eric The Red) (who was actually Norwegian) discovered Greenland - and it sorta was, theirs.. Like.. the US..

For me, Britain was an empire, in the sense of Naval-power..
Rome was an empire, when thinking about the amount of (current) countries it possessed..
User avatar #379 to #367 - Loppytaffy (10/15/2013) [-]
Denmark had an Empire. Anything by the name of Kingdom usually is/was.
User avatar #398 to #379 - suckittrebek (10/16/2013) [-]
Well, Denmark has Monarchy.. Which is technically a kingdom..
Does that mean that we are still an empire?
User avatar #399 to #398 - Loppytaffy (10/16/2013) [-]
No.
but Denmark used to own many countries; including this quiant little colony they liked to call England. Their settlement was called Jorvik. Which was localised as York.
User avatar #404 to #399 - suckittrebek (10/16/2013) [-]
We owned A BIT of England - not the entire country..
There's a bit difference..

Besides.. Many countries.. Norway, Sweden, West Indian Islands.. And then what?
User avatar #406 to #404 - Loppytaffy (10/17/2013) [-]
The whole of England; hense the amount of Germanic words in the language. It just so happens that the biggest settlement was York.
And I dunno, still Denmark had an empire.
User avatar #407 to #406 - suckittrebek (10/18/2013) [-]
We did not own THE WHOLE of England, that is bs..
User avatar #408 to #407 - Loppytaffy (10/18/2013) [-]
At the time, England did not have any real power or organised military to fight back with. It wasn't very untied, so it was pretty easy to rule.
User avatar #409 to #408 - suckittrebek (10/18/2013) [-]
As that may be, that still doesn't count as owning the entire country of England..
