False English Cliches

Most english people aren't posh. About 10% are the way we're portrayed on most international media. The majority of us are working class, rough, down to earth people. I don't hate the posh, it's just fucking odd that we're portrayed that way. It's the opposite of how America is portrayed: what most people see is proper white trash rednecks, talking shite, when in actuality most americans are very open minded - not racist fuckers though all tv wants to portray it that way - people. We're shown as all having stiff-upper lips (you thought I was gonna' say cocks didn't you?).

In America, cunt seems to be a forbidden word. In England cunt isn't half as frowned upon. I must hear or say the fucking word about 1000000000 times a day. It's in Shakespeare for fucks sake (We don't all read Shakespeare, honestly). Also, most Americans, Australians and any other nationalities think I'm Irish or Scotish because of me accent, I sound nothing like either of these but because the English are shown in such a stereotypical way across the globe, no one can place the way a normal Northern or southern bloke talks. Just strikes me as strange.

We don't all drink tea, we don't all drink it ALL the time. Though it is fucking nice.

Not every English person like, or understands Cricket. Most either hate it, or don't get it. It's India and Pakistan who seem mad on it, though I presume it's the same cliche that's going on with us which makes me think that. Fuck off with your SIX.

This relates to the posh thing. We're shown as being timid and afraid. Will let anything happen to us people, when we're actually - as 'av said - rough as fuck on the whole. We invented football hooliganism for fuck sake - it's not summet to be proud of but there it is.
