What Makes You Proud to Be British (And Don't Say Nothing)

Ask a Question

Some of the British traits have come under scrutiny recently but what makes you proud ?

I love a Red Arrows display, cream teas, a lovely British pub, old school vintage cars.

Absolutely the NHS. Americans still look at me blankly when I mention our free healthcare.

We also chuck out some really good music.

The majority of the people sticking to the rules and the generosity of others who have went out of their way with acts of human kindness to look out for the vulnerable and keep people safe during the last 4 months. And all the frontline workers who have kept our country going. Nhs, care workers, shop assistants, Lorry drivers, posties. The list goes on. Thats what makes me proud.

So many amazing things about being British across so many areas and such a rich history. I find it difficult to write down just a few things but literature, music, science, innovation, finance, engineering, education, food, medicine spring to mind. Also a huge amount of great compassionate people who care for others and animals. I do feel we are in a poor place at the moment but I'm hopeful for the future. For me personally I'm often surprised how much of the music I enjoy comes from this country, possibly as much as 70%. Also I realise some don't class our food that highly and thats probably more of a personal thing for me. I adore a good sunday roast, typical UK desserts and many classic meals, cottage pie etc. I do like a cornish pasty or pork pie too. I have to say I'm also a huge curry fan so rank Chinese and Indian food very highly. Also a gaming fan and we have some pretty respectable great titles; Elite, Tomb Raider, Red Dead Redemption, GTA, Rare games for both Nintendo and Xbox and many others.

For movies and TV as a science fiction fan I'm pretty disappointed with our output in recent decades. TV seems to be mainly crime series, medical dramas, soaps and not much I enjoy and movies we don't' seem to be make many great movies I like except some are made here by US production companies. Comedy can be fantastic though.

Our NHS is a given but I'll say our humour. We do comedy so well in the UK. We have produced many of the best comedy shows ever made: The office, IT crowd, Inbetweeners, Extras, Blackadder.... I could go on & on. Same goes with music, We have had some of the greatest musical artists.

I can usually tell who’s British when abroad because we’re the ones that do an orderly queue.
