As a born and bred Englishman, it pains me to say that my homeland has given the world plenty of entertainment recently, and not in a good way. I am of course talking about our abysmal performance at Euro 2016. Oh yeah, and, you know, that whole Brexit thing...

Because of this, it's nice to find something aimed at the UK that a Brit can actually smile about. And Twitter account @britishreactions is that something. It's completely stereotypical, completely ridiculous and...well...completely accurate. More tea anybody?

We had better weather in Scotland over a 14 years period than I have ever had in England. You obviously do not know what you are talking about.

You are not true English if you expect sun all through the summer, our summer normally falls on a Tuesday.

I was on a bus heading into Newcastle City Centre. Pressed the bell to get off. Then the bus suddenly stopped on the Central Motorway. Too embarrassed and polite to tell the driver I wanted the next stop, I got off anyway and even thanked him!
