Here's a Very English Problem for you: utter shame at having nothing worthwhile to call a national identity.
Just whinging, the class system, jobs in the service industry, and the leftovers of imperialism.

at least I didn't adopt the total biscuit/sargon Very British Voice I guess

I just found out that Twitter is bad

Spotted in Bristol: man in fluorescent yellow shorts, red shirt, front text "trump is my president", rear text "infowars.com"

Co-operative ass

@englebright if only I were rational enough to accept that, yeah nazis are bad, but the *real problem* is how social justice types are sometimes mean to nerds
