That's it! I've got to ask you boo boo.

What is your definition of being typically British?
I have a sneaky feeling we have a different perspective and define Britishness differently this side of the pond.

I'm not typically British in all it's incarnations.
Unless saying "twat" a lot, counts.

What it is to be British deserves a thread of it's own.
It's a complex beast spanning the class system, regional differences and even politics.
There is no simple answer to being "typically British" I suppose.
Much like there isn't a typical answer for defining 'the American dream'.

If someone was to ask me what nationality I am, I always say English and not British for some reason. Once again another conumdrum of the inhabitants of this fair isle.

Thread created to save another.

I'm interested in what other people from around the world consider to be 'typically British'.
Feel free to stereotype...
