Its Un-British to...

In order to really get to the bottom of what it is to be British, I thought we should start at examing what being un-british is.

Ant takers?

My starters are:

It's un-British to:

Talk on the Tube
Brag how great it is to be British (even though it is)
not slag off the French
Kick a man/woman when they are down
Buy half pints
Not stand your round

etc etc

See if you can do any better! the more cynical, the better!
Complain about anything,
Wear speedos
To take your socks off when shagging
Reserve your sun lounger.

Leave a tip.

Leave the bar while it's still serving.

Not stand in an orderly queue.

Drink coffee at breakfast.
To not drink tea.

To not feel smug when the Germans are losing. At anything.

To be good at tennis.

To fasten the bottom button on a waistcoat.

I think you'll find the title is UN-British....
Laugh at Morris Dancers..........yeah right.
To not say "thank you" at least seven times in the simplest of social interactions - such as buying one's copy of the morning newspaper
To speak any foreign language.
Admit that the oncoming typhoon is anything more than the weather being a little disappointing during Wimbledon.
To punch the air in triumph having scored a goal/try/six, what ever.
To find rap music (whatever that is) anything more than an incomprehensible, crotch-grabbing, simian chanting, punctuated by shouts of "mo'fo" (again, whatever that is).
