what it means to be British in 2018
The nation's history is also a central theme. People attach special importance to Britain's defiance of Nazi Germany in 1940, with the emphasis almost certainly as much on "Nazi" as on "Germany". The Royal Navy ranks high as a national symbol, higher even than the monarchy. People also know how much they owe to the fact that Britain has not been invaded since 1066.
Foreign tourists' Britain, clearly matters far less to the natives. Not only warm beer and cricket but also red telephone boxes and double-deck buses scarcely figure in Britons' sense of what their country means. Pubs and Shakespeare matter more.
Partly because it is rooted so deeply in the present as well as the past, Britons' sense of national identity seems secure. People never ask themselves the question, "What does it mean to be British?", they just go about the business of being British.
The word ‘British’ is an emotive one. It can invoke feelings of pride, anger and defensiveness. It is often spouted by certain sections of the media and politicians in order to garner a reaction from the public.
The British identity is more attractive to younger people than the elderly, according to analysis of data from the 2011 census,
In England and Wales, the generation least likely to have ticked the box marked "British" to describe their national identity are those who lived through the war and watched the sun set on the British Empire.
The increasing ethnic diversity of British society means it is difficult to define what makes someone British.
Tony Blair says that "blood alone" does not define national identity and that modern Britain was shaped by a "rich mix of all different ethnic and religious origins".
These views were reflected by the Queen, who talked about "our richly multicultural and multi faith society" in her jubilee speech to Parliament.
British people should have an opportunity to express their personal views on what they are about We hear and read a lot about the irrelevancy of national identity by so called enlightened intellectuals but when an ordinary person spends over forty years of his working life in America and whose final wish was to be buried in the place of his birth We realize one of the most important influences in the majority of people is the feeling of belonging and having a national identity.
To be British means to respect our country and to respect how British things are done.
I think that being British means that you are proud of the country you live live in.
It does not matter if you you weren't born there or your family aren't from there.Traditional British food like English Breakfast, Sunday Dinner and Fish and Chips. No other country makes this sort of food like Britain
Being British, in my opinion, cannot be shown on a piece of paper or passport, but just living in Britain no matter where you come from.
I'm so proud to be British. I think that we have a lovely country that is free from many worldwide hazards like floods
