    I'm not 'proud' to be English, our cities are dirty, grey, graffitied, crime ridden shit holes, our people as a whole are at best a mixed bag and the weather is almost uniformly miserable.  Everytime I see 'resorts' for English holiday makers in foreign countries on the news, with 'revellers', I wince.

    But I'm glad I'm English.  If we were to become ill, we've got the NHS, if we were to be unemployed, we've got welfare.  The standard of living is fairly high even for the unemployed.  Our British Standards of food safety and all health and safety regs are really high.  Most of the first world speaks our language.  Lots of reasons to be glad your English / British.
