For all those who pretend to be British or wish they were. And for British people who like to be appreciated for their Britishness.

Coming from the north of England, i would imagine that Americans would consider me "Not particuarly British". There is not one british accent (Charlieissocoollike etc) but a whole load of good accents which differ from city to city. I LOVE THE UK, well i Like the uk enough to live here when i was born and live now.
I regard myself as British because I come from Cornwall and everyone there is a nasty human being trying to distance themselves from "The English", whereas I personally know plenty of fantastic English people (and Cornwall is still part of England, they just wish it wasn't). I don't like distancing myself from the Welsh or Scottish either, as we are all Celtic in ancestry and England is the main body of our established Country. I don't really regard myself as patriotic, as such, but definitely British because I have brothers and sisters in ALL of the British Isles, not just Cornwall because I'm a Nerdfighter; not a narrowminded ass. Regardless; there is no such thing as a "British accent" as there are many areas in Britian that are all completely different. Mancunians sound completely different to the Cornish, and the Welsh sound different to the Irish and the Scottish... there's just no such thing. I have what you'd likely regard as a "British accent", however, in that I sound like I belong in the royal family. I don't sound Cornish at all. Anyway, that's my 2 cents on the subject and I'm proud to be a Nerdfighter above all else; and we span the entire globe :D
Earth Patriotism ftw.
I have a Nerdfighter friend who literally talks in a fake British accent all the time. Gets asked what part of the country he's from. It's awesome. I almost fell in love with him when we first met :P
Although British accents are awesome, I really hate it when they are imitated badly by Americans. A prime example would be this obnoxious teacher character in this Barbie movie (don't ask)
arrrghhh... I get SO annoyed when I hear how desperately she tries to fake that accent but you can TELL! It is just torture listening to that.
If I use a British accent, some people will actually think I'm originally from the UK. Even close friends. Funny, but I don't think my accent is that good...
When I saw this group I laughted and was just like "Theres NO way I'm not joining this!!!" I am a HUGE fake uk'r
My family went to England before i was born and i completely believe i was affected by it :) altho my love for tea may be because i grew up in a tea room
