Default Re: What is British Culture?

British culture is having a PIE, eating fish n chips, having a knee trembler at the local club, having a kebab later on and watching footy on telly later on

and finding Tommy Cooper bloody funny & wondering why Debbie Mc Gee married the millionaire shortarse Paul Daniels
