    No explanation needed here, this is a club house for all of the TPU UK crew to talk about all things british or just to get together and do the usual British thing of moaning about everything non-british, we like to moan cause were British. Feel free to bitch, moan, whine, rejoice and just general chit chat for all us Brits about the things that make us tick or make our blood boil.

    As the Op has done a runner and not been seen for ages, if you would like to join, just drop in and say hello, please make sure you have completed your profile information and it shows your town/county.

    Technically coming from Scotland im supposed to never like the English or being British, no grudge against English people but for me im Scottish and i live in the UK. For me we are a part of the UK even tho i dont feel British.

    Count me in then.

    When people insult British they tend to forget Welsh and Scots are British too.

    I'll join. Go UK :rockout:

    Just had my Marmite crumpet for breakfast, lol :p

    My fav tea is Tetley.

    Things I love about UK:

    - Aston martin (mmmm nice cars, so glad the American Owners saw sense and got the British to design them now)
    - NHS (no really, cus its free! No "Can I take your credit card details first?" over here!)
    - British Weather, as unpredictable as it may be, at least we dont need AC to keep our PC's cool in summer. And 12*C idle temps on a quad core in winter!
    - The Pound! i dont want no Euro in my pocket!
    - Oh yeah, and Marmite! :D

    Things I hate:

    - VAT! :mad:
    - Not having as much choice as the US for Computer stuff. Come on newegg, cross the Atlantic! :D
    - When Games/hardware gets released 3/4days after US. Why! :wtf: (Thankyou to Rockstar for not doing this with GTA IV)


    Now a moan, I've picked up a damn stinking head cold in my final week of work this summer :( , (silver lining, i have the day off :) )

    I hate that in the Census you can tick your nationality.
    It has Welsh, Irish, Scottish, other and British. No English! WTF?

    My name originates in Ireland though - in fact I am 1/8 Irish, the rest of me is Plymouthian though.

    I would've liked a broader "British Commonwealth club" since it counts us Indies, Aussies, Kiwis, (some) Caribs, Canucks as well....a much larger clubhouse is forums.techpowerup.com ...includes people from all over.

    btw Me likes Tetley
