    The English ideal will be reached when everyone in England is living alone, on their own individual island.
    sounds like paradise.

    spot on.

    One might say that you are of the mongrel variety - cross-bred?

    What they are saying is true, albeit in a quaint sort of way.

    The English will never forgive you for skipping a queue.
    The Aussies will never forgive you for winning (Americas Cup Anyone?).
    Danes are just like the Irish except they work harder...
    The Germans want to start the party after dinner and....
    The Greeks want to start after breakfast, cos someone else is always paying...

    I recall from my short time in the UK that they are ALL programmed to jump out of bed at 10.30am on a Saturday morning and start waxing the car. You could set your watch by them...

    What people think of us Irish i will leave to somebody else.

    The English are also British and European, that's a fact, not withstanding how the misfiring neurons in between your ears may define your understanding of what "PC" is.
