How British Are You These Days. - click the link and report back.

I came out at only 50% which rather surprised me, what-ho.
70%, somewhat pissed off at such a high score.

Congrats, mate. You're are probably British.
(If not, definitely Australian. Or Kiwi. Or Canadian.)

You enjoy most aspects of mainstream British culture, without being stereotypical about it.
You also have a typical British temperament. You wouldn't dream of being impolite.
yeah, its same.

I didn't tick for drinking tea all day stuff & silly German car,,,.

I do drink tea but not everyday. It doesn't mean you are less British or so. @! Its not fair~!

and personally I prefer French cars -- driving a French car doesn't mean you are less British! again not fair!

now I am off for a cuppa (Earl Grey - the milk goes in first) while cooking tea.! am I British?!

my background is nothing to do with British and I don't even have Brit accents! but I am 55% British far out!

ah! I use Royal Albert when I drink tea! I love fine English bone china too much. maybe I am British...haha.

I got 40% but then my answers wouldn't have been any different when I did live in the UK so I guess I was a piss poor Brit there too!

Only 65%, more visits to the pub required. That's easily fixed !

Whatever you are, you have exceptionally good taste, and that is all that matters.

Where do you stand on Lady Grey? I find it perfect for the first pot of the day- with just a spot of milk- and then later I might move onto Earl Grey.

PS I just remembered I have been listening to The Archers since I was eight, which makes me the outright winner on the British stakes. That quiz, in failing to mention teapots and The Archers has an inadequate grasp of Britishness.

I bet we could all come up with a better quiz.
