I imagine you would be even more glad to be Chinese or American then.

Nah.. being a 'Brit' means that you're allowed to complain, work hard (or not), have some freedom and above all have some very unpredictable weather that the Met. office seems to have problems with.

Not particularly glad to be a Brit, but rather glad not to be something else!

We're the best of a somewhat mediocre bunch.

I am confused. At various times this year, I am expected to be British (Olympics), European (Ryder Cup) and English (European Football Championships). Ok, forget the last one.

In my life, I have cheered for famous Brits such as Greg Rudedski, Lennox Lewis and Zola Budd. The England cricket captain is South African, and the two "English" teams in the Champions League final could scarcely raise a bowler hat between them.

This whole nationalist business is meaningless, and often dangerous. I'm a member of the human race, end of rant.

I'm not. Over taxed, under paid and everything costs more..... had I the money to leave I would. Britain sucks!

And just where do you think life would be so much better? I invite you to tell us all where things are so great that you would be paid more, and taxed less, and where everything costs less. A place where you have the same freedoms and benefits that you have here, with access to free medical attention, and where the people are happier.

I'm delighted that you're glad to be a Brit, but you told us all that a week ago - it's not necessary to remind us yet again.

According to the Sunday Express there is a group in Europe who are trying their damndest to ensure our athletes peform under the European Flag by the 2012 Olympics.

They do have some influence though.

Having said that I should like to think there would be an uproar if they attempted it.

Not just here but amongst the European competitors as well.
