What Do Europeans Really Think About British culture?


The weather British food drinking tea oh god okay separate hot and cold taps nightmare What’s wrong with you people?! like the rest of the world has figured this out how would you like to die? by freezing, or by boiling?! every time i wash my hands i actually wash my hands this way two seconds on cold, a second and a half on hot and then it’s fine i’ve done that! i’ve done that. you know what i came to the tube this morning I stepped on someone’s shoes they apologised to me they say sorry so many times it’s like contagious whenever i go back to France now, I say like “désolé” all the time as well on the metro so i’ll be like “pardon, pardon, pardon” even if you don’t mean it, I think that’s the intrinsic part what took me a while to get, is the ’cause you’ve got the like the apologetic sorry, the passive aggressive sorry, and just the aggressive sorry “Excuse me!” I am sorry, oh excuse me sir! More important than politics Yeah! It’s really really important Like one thing that I realised here is it’s like, when it’s sunny, you go full bananas the first sunny day of the year it’s like twelve, twelve degrees and you know, and everyone’s like, it’s been sunny for like, more than twenty minutes now let’s strip! bloody hell, bloody hell honey, honey I’m not your honey I don’t know you! cheers, I love cheers! Alright mate? I used to say, you know “Less-est-er” “Le-le-less-est-er” square, like “Green-witch” They do say “f**k” in every sentence I know! Yeah i know, even like when they’re just walking by Yeah! And when they’re happy too! You can use basically any word, like any adjective and in the right context people will, you know, guess that you’re talking about being drunk It’s incredible i love queueing i just love it! it’s at the same rank as drinking, it’s just like they’re both sports and you must excel at both You just said that with such conviction just like “I love queueing!” because i remember the first time i was in front of Barclay’s and i saw all of these people in the queue like this just waiting I can’t believe there was nobody shouting or pushing or saying, “oh for f**ks sake, I’m still waiting, hellooo! Can you move?!” You know? We don’t queue in Italy I love teas Tea is bad. Tea is so good! Drinking tea here is like a religion tea’s just boring! question is, do you lift your little finger? Tea. You have like thousands of teas and you can just enjoy it Yeah but you can do that with wine instead you have to be very precise with the amount of time you leave the tea bag inside the thing right if you like, put in the milk wrong like too much or too little ohh you’re gonna get bollocked What are you doing here? You don’t like the Queen, you don’t like tea Every day after work hours, at least like two or three pints It’s so easy to spend your entire day in a pub so like arrive to eat and then and then have a few pints then like, “time to have food again!” and then you have food again, then more drinks so i’ve literally been sat here for 9 hours when i moved here, i was sorta like “well, i’m gonna do the same” like “i’m gonna go out at midnight” but as soon as i lived in camden back then i sort of opened up the door and there was like this circus and british people are completely unable to talk about their feelings if they’re sober like especially in the case of relationships like one or two people having a good time out but you start realising it’s the entire town getting shitfaced when it’s clear that, you know, two people fancy each other and i’ve had that on dates so many times and it’s like “no, no we still have three pints to go before anything can happen” because this is a weird country oh, ‘what would you miss if you left the UK?’ awwh, I would miss so many things I think i would miss the people seriously i think the Brits are some of the most charming people on Earth I just love them, I love the fact that they’re a bit colder and they’re not so touchy and they’re not so intrusive a country where you can actually start a business over the phone is a country where you can actually make stuff happen and it’s a land of opportunity like you can be anyone or do anything here exactly! without being judged and i just love the energy like the vibe of it yeah there’s so many things.. happening everywhere like pretty much everything that we covered today the weather ah… not the weather I really like this silly country um, you know, can’t believe I said that on camera Sylvia, would you miss queueing? YES! YES! A lot! I wouldn’t queue anymore i’ll be like okay i’m just going there… let me go through

  1. The one thing that comes to my head when Britain comes up is how disgraceful, racist and ignorant the people and the government is against the foreigners. A complete shameful country to be born in.

  2. I don't get what you do if you don't que? How does anyone know when it's their turn. Like if 10 people are waiting for one person to help, how do you know when you're next? Do you just shove in front of everyone? That's a bit narcissistic isn't it also a bit selfish and rude?

  3. I love how when they were talking about British people saying sorry all the time my British ass said sorry. 😏

  4. Did they just not talk about how people in the UK leave their shit outside… like bikes, toys and other stuffs? Like honestly anyone could take it.

  5. Well like morons and bigots everywhere, their commentary only reflects them and not their target.

  6. having a go at people for queuing when the real issue is why your country feels the need to shout at people instead of just waiting. hm

  7. I hate the way people think British people drink tea all the time it's actually annoying me! I'm British btw

  8. They are artificially polite ha ha nobody feeeeels apologetic when they apologize and can be so sweetly sarcastic

  9. I think one of the reasons that we say sorry so much is because it's the best way to not be punched in the face for pissing off some potentially unstable stranger by bumping into them

  10. This should be re-labelled something like 'what do continental Europeans think about British culture'. Just because Britain is leaving the EU doesn't mean British people aren't and will not be European, genetically or culturally. Nice try pushing the cultural and identity genocide BBC.

  11. So this is why people hate England:

    1. There polite and like to say sorry

    2. They have preferences on what they drink

    3. Weather ( kinda, understandable )

    4. And that we have queues everywhere

  12. Weather in the UK is great, because of it we NEVER get natural disasters, although floods can happen sometimes but are mild compared to other places.

  13. Really. Wtf. Simple the way we think of brits . Drunk . Rude. Aggressive when they drunk. Sluts and dirty people that smells. Simple

  14. OK I know its taking the mic it of British people but no one says cheers mate or alright mate
    People put bad stereotypes on British people

  15. English women are the most annoying, obnoxious, whiny miserable people on the face of the planet. They should be tea bagged any time they speak.

  16. The only thing I've got against Britain having so many cultures is if there was a war with say Iran, there are millions of people from Iran in Britain and so they wouldn't know who to side with

  17. Bruv why when ever there is some people speaking about the posh parts like fam piss off no one is like that if u go up to anywhere else outside the posh area tread on someone's toe ur gonna shanked

  18. The British are a annoying culture where they think that their own shit smells sweeter then everyone else's. They will most likely take up their past time of British arguing in almost any circumstances to talk and "reason" their way around their incompetence. They WILL believe they are always "wight" about everything. Im so glad I don't live there any more and nearly die cringing at their mind set and weird social culture.

  19. Elderly ladies addressing me as "love". Ah, that was so sweet. In Russia you can only say that to kids, men will say it only as a way of mocking you, and elderly ladies never they are tougher here than the men.

  20. Nothing against anyone. My comment reports what I have experienced in 5 years and half here in England.

    LIKE:
    British summer, job opportunities, meritocratic system, perfect roads, professionalism at work, parks and green areas, respect of rules, British accent (as long as it is understandable), open-minded people (in a positive way!), country where everything can be achieved (if you are good enough), willingness to progress, dynamic society, transports (although expensive), smartness of some people.

    DON'T LIKE:
    Drunk and tattooed people (I hate it!), aggressiveness (British politeness is a false myth and belongs only to few individuals – maybe to old generations), sorry thank you and are you alright? without really mean it!, inability to distinguish the working from daily life (this is linked to the previous statement), women acting (and looking) like men, colorful hair (what the hell! Look so ridiculous), old and badly designed houses, too many immigrants around (the ones who don't give any contribution to the country), poor personal/house hygiene, obesity and high rate of disability (come on…streets look like hospitals), no sense for style, looking after benefits (differently from other countries, you're so lucky to have plenty of jobs – take advantage of it).

  21. Europeans by and large don't understand a thing about the British culture and history. We voted Brexit for a reason, it would be polite if Europeans read about the history of the UK before saying a word about it.

  22. Ban fireworks
    End 24 hour drinking
    Outlaw weed
    Ban speeders from driving
    All cars restricted to 85mph
    Death sentence for lifers/muderers/rapists/ pedos / extremists
    Allow use/carry of self defence tools
    No NHS treatment for self inflicted health issues : smoking, alcohol, drugs, STD’s or
    Contraception.
    2 child maximum limit for migrants and no exception.
    No job , no benefits. You work for your food. Luxuries are treats, not rights.
    Drunken lout behaviour is punishable via community service.

    Prisoners made to repair roads for their food and payback to society. (Moderately free labour minus clothing and food/beverages)

    Council or local area authorities to be fully responsible for damage to public vehicles from their unmaintained roads therefore will be liable and made to pay for such repairs.

    Red stop light cameras on every traffic light set.
    Tailgaters loose their license.
    All businesses shall have books balanced via an official HMRC accountant.
    Hire cars such as exotic cars restricted to 70mph
    Car finance reduced. If you cannot afford to pay 50% upfront you can’t purchase the car.
    Immigrant communities/ethnic groups split up and spread out across the nation and are not allowed to ‘over run’ established areas.

    Ban all faiths and religions. Modern society has no place for old testament faith.

  23. The thing I guess they are missing with separate hot and cold taps in the UK we have invented something called a plug. You get a sink full of perfect temp water and you don't was a gallon or two.

  24. lol these guys dont even realise that you don't need to keep putting your hands underneath one you can you turn the hot one on while the cold one is on and its heats it up

  25. I noticed that same thing with the taps, im from Australia. You can only have either cold or hot water, you arent allowed to mix it 🤨

  26. Tea is boring..you could drink wine instead, ha ha. As much as I love going abroad, I always loves coming back to England, it has many faults, but also has the most unique cosy and friendly people too. The UK is my house, my understanding of everyday life, and although I have been to many a beautiful places in Europe, I  Iove our sense of humour and the way we just do things the best.

  27. The english. We are stupid and lazy so i hear from foreigners. Heard this alot lately. Even outside my front door. Nice to know what they think of us.

  28. As a proud brit I think Europeans are ungrateful cowards who surrender to Germany in weeks and expect Britain to fight their battles for them. A thank you would be nice!

  29. These people need to think of the flip side. Why do the British ever go to their home countries (other than to rescue them from invading Germans)? It's the sunshine. Otherwise we wouldn't bother.

  30. I keep hearing that people in other countries dont que…. but I cant figure out what else there is??!! Is it determined by who is the biggest or most aggressive? Or who is more in a rush? are you in a big crowd debating it or conducting thumb wars, im so confused!! 😆

  31. One of my friends said I say sorry to much so she said she would give me free sweets if I didn’t say sorry for a week…I didn’t do it and she counted every time I said it…357 times…and one was for a letter box and a lamppost

  32. Uk is not English is a mix culture created by English the thing is that now are taking over by immigration so English culture slowly disappear

  33. Me an average British. In bed. Drinking tea Watching this video

    Europeans: "They are so polite"

    Stops sipping tea

    Me: Excuse me, Have you ever seen a chav before in Britain?

  34. British people don’t listen, they do not apologise all the time try travelling to South Yorkshire You’ll for yourself

  35. Americans trying to replicate our accent: Ooh would you like some tea dear, lovely weather isn’t it.

    What they should really be saying: IMMA SHANK YOU UP FAM INNIT BRUV
