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.

It's funny, no Englishman describes themselves as British.
And the rest are all trying to devolve.
I'm inclined to delete the d to be frank.

I'm completely convinced I was born in the wrong country

There isn't an actual UK-ers group, is there? Or I would have joined it.
If you wish to provide the greatest form of flattery who am I to deny you?
I shall soak it up.

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...
