1) We have an archaic institution: the monarchy.
2) We don't have a written constitution like USA does, even though theirs is founded on our English Law.
3) The peerage system, which is the source of the class divide in this country.
4) A more generous welfare system than the USA.
5) Public healthcare which the USA doesn't have.
6) We're boorish and arrogant.
7) We overestimate our sporting achievements.
8) The US lot seem to think England is the whole of the UK when it isn't true.
9) Mediocre food, but then we're conquerors historically, not culinary legends like the French and Italians are in Europe.
10) That we're Americanised and it's true.
11) We're the US' political puppet after we lost our superpower status thanks to how WWII ended in the USA's favour. The US people mock us due to our politicians asslicking them to maintain to our so-called "special relationship" when it's clearly one-sided.
12) No backbone. Read 11).
13) Rugby is manlier than its US cousin: American Football. No shoulder pads, forward passing and helmets. Derp.
14) Myth: We all have bad teeth. Those with no money will have poor health and hygiene. Plenty of US people have bad teeth due to health privatisation there.

I live in Canada, and as the lapdog to the British, Canadians in general love the British. Their accents, especially.

We're a racially diverse, politically corrupt (EU governs us pretty much -.-), lazy, up-tight but friendly country with food ranging from the god awful to the sublime. We drink hot drinks a lot, not necessarily tea, and have far to much love for so called celebrities. But we are also a proud nation, and one with some of the most elite soldiers and the own greatest number of active nuclear warheads per capita... so we'd be sorted in a war. Also, we are a surprisingly clever country with the likes of Steven Hawking and Brian Cox to name 2 of a long list of scientists and mathematicians. Also... we can spell... damned americans ruining our precious language...

P.S. Don't moan about my grammar I know it's abysmal i cba to proof read for a forum.

Oh, and...

15) We have some of the worst educational standards in Europe, as evident by the gentleman above's written English . Those who are well off get access to the best private schools and universities. Like MURIKAAH.

Nice one jackass, i posted a warning about my grammar. Don't insult my intelligence. Britain's educational infrastructure is crafted so that well off families can get supposedly better education, but grammar school education is superior to private education. Those who have the ability to do well are helped along the way. I come from a background of benefits due the parental separation and my Mothers chronic bowel disorder, and yet I went to grammar school placing 4th in my county for the 11+ exam, got 12 GCSEs, 4 A Levels and went to kent University before having to leave due to mental health problems. So no... there is nothing wrong with our educational system, it is one of the fairest in the world, because, unlike what you claim, money does not buy intelligence here.

Sometimes I forget that Ireland and Scotland are part of the UK.
I'm still not sure whether or not Wales is included, or separate.
The most fascinating thing I have learned about UK stereotypes is that you guys have at least 16 different accents and I can only tell the difference between like, 3 of them.

It’s actually 3 or 4 countries, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, depending who you ask.

Doesn't really matter who you ask, it's The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Four countries.

GB or Great Britain is England, Wales and Scotland. Three countries.

UK=4
GB=3

Why does everyone think we have bad teeth?

I have the posh accent and I drink the tea so I guess I am a stereo type in that respect

Brits don't know what side of the road you're supposed to drive on, I think its because all the smart people who were there got on a boat and founded America to do things the right way! haha
