I dunno, I don't think it's that great in Oz. Oz pales in comparison to Prague, Copenhagen, San Diego etc!.

I meant tolerant in the way that we all are to others coming in and making up their own rules , shouting hatred on our streets and war mongering to young muslims to rise up and fight the jihad whilst living on our taxes to pay their benifits, and the way that we arent going gung ho and killing every last one just to make sure as the BNP and NF will and will/would have done. It may be early days yet, but i think the bombs were to test our resilliance and to disrupt our great multicultural diversity into a tit for tat war where they can gather more support for an uprising in this country. They seem to forget that we live in harmony and have done for 30 odd years, and most people have friends from all ethnic origins(i do anyway).

By tolerant i meant we dont go out there and fight for our right to be british and proud as it may cause offence!

Doesnt mean i AGREE WITH IT.

Can we give a few?

Home (it will always be my home)

Proud (always proud to say I am English)

Football (the only game that matters)

There is a hell of a lot of negative comments on this thread perhaps its better that most of you have left you must have been pretty miserable!!!

Have a good weekend a few and perhaps the world will seem a better place come Monday.

Agreed. I doubt anyone staying in the UK will give a shit when such negative twats squander vast amounts of money on a pipe-dream they're destined to **** up.

Anyway. Here's my word:

"bellicose"

What amuses me are the ones that go on how the British aren't patriotic enough so they patriotically bugger off.

Flawed.

I wanted to find a word that was both positive but reflected some sort of dispair, relative decay.

By hundreds of definitions, I think the UK is a ''great'' country but it is in national Cultural decline - nothing to do with chavs or immigrants by the way, - confidence in the main - and has just not quite got it anymore. It is missing the x factor.
