  • I wouldn't call it love, but I have spent a lot of time in England and I have a "sister in law" (we shack up) who is British. There are other personal connections, but I won't bore you with the details:) I can't pinpoint anything in particular. Since answered your question could you please send me a Double Decker bar? No? Okay (pouts).
  • I don't really have a huge fascination with the British... but I guess it is just exotic to us, like all other countries... I hope the love is mutual. =)
  • Okay, so I have a weakness for the accents. I have one salesman that calls once a week, he is from Leicester and I just love his voice.
  • It's the pint of bitter and not the people. The Scots are tops because they have Single Malt! LOL :-)
  • I think it's the accent ;-)
  • For me, it's your accent. I love the accent. Plus when I visited London I met some of the nices people in the world.
  • I could never understand an English accent so well, so never found humor in Benny Hill, though the Young Ones were hilarious. However, instead of bangers and a pint at the local pub, I'll have a wings and a beer at the corner bar.
  • Could be that it is because our country's roots have origin with Great Britain.
  • They can be so funny sometimes like Monty Python and Benny Hill. Also alot of British bands came over like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits just to name a few.
  • Which Americans have you been talking to?
  • I think you're misinformed. I've never had anyone tell me they love the British.
  • The "British Humor" is amazing. Monty Python, Little Britain, Benny Hill...awesome. And the accent (especially the "cockney") in women is just hypnotizing.
  • The accent is just awesome!
  • John Cleese's character in "A Fish Called Wanda" explains what it means to be British. I think it shows why the humor is the way it is. "Wanda, do you have any idea what it's like being English? Being so correct all the time, being so stifled by this dread of, of doing the wrong thing, of saying to someone "Are you married?" and hearing "My wife left me this morning," or saying, uh, "Do you have children?" and being told they all burned to death on Wednesday. You see, Wanda, we'll all terrified of embarrassment. That's why we're so... dead. Most of my friends are dead, you know, we have these piles of corpses to dinner. But you're alive, God bless you, and I want to be, I'm so fed up with all this. I want to make love with you, Wanda. I'm a good lover - at least, used to be, back in the early 14th century. Can we go to bed?"
  • Whether we admit it or not Britain is our mother, we have a inseparable bond so to speak with Britain. Whether we have our little spats from time to time, America will also be by Britain's side...always. I just hope Britians feel the same way.
  • I'm not sure. I've never really heard that. I don't love the British so much. I don't dislike them either. I have been to the UK and I had a fine time there, and I'd go again. I have had many British clients (MANY) and I have enjoyed working with many of them, but I also found many of them to be a real pain in the patooty. Just like people from anywhere else.
  • I think its because we brits saved their "ass's" (notice the incorrect spelling) in WW2. LMAO No, seriously, I think its a respect thing, they envy to be as powerful as we were 150 years ago.
  • because the British arnt mean to us, at least in my experience
  • And vice versa. British people love americans. They are very openminded, warm, congenial, and affabile. I have visited America, new york and washington several times, and I find americans far more outgoing and extrovert. But I love all people generally. There was a period in which the british were very villianised, sideshow bob in the simpsons, and lex luther is superman and many othe movies depicted evil anti heroes as very well spoken english gentlemen.
  • I have not heard this. I think it might be the accent with some people. People tell me that they call my husbands phone to hear him talk. He also has his voice on my brothers shop phone, and people have told me that they call to hear the accent also, and his voice. Weird huh? I couldn't understand a damn thing he was saying for a year :)
  • The accent
  • This is news to me. I have nothing against the British. But I don't consider them any better than any other group of people.
  • anyone who could come up with the name 'spotted dick' for a desert can't be all bad! plus we've forgiven you for the George III thing.
  • Well, I like the BBC and Old Gregg.
  • Because that's the only place in europe they can speak english
  • Your positive attitudes and ability to see good in our view of you even when there isn't any... Just kidding! I admire British accents.
  • It's very strange that they describe themselves variously as African American, Irish American, Italian American, etc, but they love the British so much that not one single one of them describes themselves as Anglo American or British American. They don't love you - they just like the make-believe stuff about Royal Families and the fact that successive British Governments have supported them without a moments delay, despite the fact that they have never done that for the British. They like the fact that the former owners of their country, who they kicked out, have become little more than US apologists and supporters.
  • I don't care what anyone says, I dig the Brits. It's cool when people have your back no matter what, even when we're dead wrong. Hopefully that friendship will last long enough to see the end of current elements of corruption and we'll be even cozier buddies
  • I LOVE the accent. Everything you people say sounds so proper and nice. I especially love swear words said with a british accent. I don't think there is anything better.
  • You love going to war almost as much as we?
  • WE DONT
  • Do they? Ah, I feel all loved.
  • Maybe many Americans look at them as a Mother or Fatherland place, so they look at the citizens, specially older ones with a sense of respect and deference.
  • They secretly regret the War of Independence? (only joking!)
  • Im guilty.... I love love the accent.. the verbage... everything. I watch English films etc. ( yes I have a life ) I want to go there one day and just sit in a pub and absorb it all! PS Enjoy it.. no one goes on about Americans that way. Hugs
  • haha i cant say many americans have told me they love the british altho i was once over visitng family in florida and went to a local supermarket and was speaking to my aunty and this woman stopped me dead and said " wow you speak amazing english when did you learn to speak it ?" i was in stitches im from the north of england so have a very broard manc accent i didnt have the heart to tell her i was born n bred in the uk ....ahhh u got to love the americans eh ;)
  • I'm not sure why I feel so drawn to the British. There's just an aura around you, like a spell. I feel like I'm hypnotized.
  • As nations go, Britain is to America like a parent with whom we had a huge fight and walked out on, but came back to defend when it was really needed, and have been friends ever since. We don't regret what happened, but we're both stronger for it. As individuals, I can't speak for anyone else, but I see kindred spirits in the British. I visited Wales last year, and felt quite at home, even moreso than I do AT home. The people were unwaveringly friendly, and even helped out when my bank cut off my debit card for three days. You'd never see anything like that over here...
  • the accent, the cuties, mwah!
  • prob cus thats where the most influential people who ended up being americans are from. we fought them for freedom but kept all the customs. i think secretly america wanted so much to be like them. british are ok, but im not just in love with them.
  • Maybe because I'm married to one :) I don't think its a mother country thing, many of us are from other countries. My own family is other-European. However, I think as Elizabeth Sherrill said, so many of the stories we are read as kids are English in origin that going to England feels like coming home. Alice in Wonderland, Secret Garden, Harry Potter, James Herriot, many of the fairy tales, Robin Hood, Beatrix Potter, Chronicals of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, Shakespeare, list goes on and on....
  • Aw, mommy, how can you ask? Britain gave the world the principles of the Magna Carta, without which the Declaration of Independence could never have been conceived. Intended or not, you gave us our freedom!
  • For me, I guess it's just in my blood, literally. My ancestry traces back to Durham, County Durham, England (1578) and there is a small town west of there that has my surname for it's own.
  • If I were to posit a supposition, I would say it is more to do with having a parallel culture. Whereas America evolved from the puritanistic ideals and morays of the early colonists, we british have sat alongside the churche of England, the representatives of whom usually comes in the format of the local Vicar, a pleasant and gentle fellow who potters around with various interests and holds a sermon every sunday. In this manner, british culture has a lesser tendency to ostracize or discriminate (perhaps making Britian a philosphical ideal?). On the accent front, it is often found that when say a french citizen or spanish citizen learns English, they adapt it to their way of pronouncing certain sounds, to the point where english speaking people find it pleasant to listen to. In other words, perhaps it is just the enjoyment on a variation english speaking culture, a different method to the madness as it were.

  • It is just something about the accent, dearie. I can't put it into words, but the accent is lovely. I also like the more demure way many of you deal with controversy with other people. You appear nicer than Americans, somehow when you guys are angry.

  • Nothing like a nice spotted dick. Plus you guys gave the world Monty Python. What's not to love?
  • i think britts have sexy accents :)
  • Eddie Izzard. And the many other comedians that I see on BBC that make me laugh. :)
  • We like the British okay. I'm not sure where you got the idea that Americans loved you. We have a few Anglophiles but some Americans don't like the British. The majority simply have benign feelings towards them.
  • Love the accent, some brits are polite, and some are snobbish and some could be sarcastic the same time polite.
  • You can not generilize. LOL Some people like British some don't. LOL I heard from a British person that a hypocrisy is a common trait. I can't stand hypocrisy. LOL

  • British socity is the base of US socity. Hundreds of years ago British formed 13 colonies in the Americas. The settlers brougt with them their British custom and loylty. Loylty didn't stick, but custioms did. You created our country.
  • The accent, is absolutely fantastic. :)
  • to tell you the truth...people of the US are actually very dismissive of the British....rarely do I ever hear of them, nor do I, or anyone I know in fact even talk about the British or even care what is going on over there. (no offense meant) In fact, I couldnt think of a single person I know who cares enough about the UK and the people of it enough to love em or hate em. I guess if you have met an American, and the experiance was pleasurable...it may just be because the people you have met are good natured people, and it might not have anything to do with where you are from at all.
  • Is it really a mystery? They love themselves! (Americans = Brits, mostly)
