Hm, well let me see
I am english
I’ve lived in england my entire life
I think I know a bit more about england than the blatant Britaboos.
(‘Britaboo’ - definition: An individual who does not come from Great Britain, and obsesses over British culture, whilst being both ignorant and moronic.)
Also, I never said that no one can move to england. If you’re an adult - financially ready, as well as emotionally and mentally ready, and have seriously planned over a substantial amount of time to make the move, then all the power to you.
What I hate is the amount of romanticising about this country. Quite frankly, it makes me sick. Americans, I’m sorry, but you’re the worst offenders. You do realise that by making england/the whole of the UK out to be some magical country where you automatically live in London and have tea with the Queen, you’re shitting on the real experiences of actual British people?
Here’s a few choice words for you Britaboos: council estates, crime, gangs, binge drinking, poverty, the benefits system, anti-social behaviour, unemployment, inflation, classism, the economic crisis, young people only being offered low paid, low skilled work (if they’re lucky), overpopulation, student loans (our PM really fucking hates young people, especially if they’re poor), the BNP, and the cock-shaped cherry on top - David Cameron.
Not sounding so magical now, are we? While I realise that a good portion of what I listed happens across the world, my point is that we’re not a jolly nation of tea drinkers waiting to cater to you/entertain you when you arrive.
So yeah, if you’re an American teenager who still lives with your parents and you just so happen to like British telly (or if you’re just a really fucking stupid adult who thinks they’re going to hang out with Benedict Cumberbatch every weekend) - stay at home, finish school, grow up. Get rid of your sense of entitlement (you’re not ‘British at heart’, seriously, real British people are just rolling their eyes at you), and maybe holiday here in a few years.
Britain is not a fantasy kingdom for you to escape to.
A Brit against Britaboos.
