Article text

The United Kingdom, a place where people drink copious amounts of tea and discuss the weather at every opportunity. A place where ‘raining cats and dogs’ can be heard most days and where queueing is almost classed as a national sport.

Many people see the UK as a place full of beer, football and awful weather. A place where people eat fish and chips every night, roast dinners on Sundays and not much else. A place where people spend all their free time in the pub, but are always at home in the afternoon to have traditional afternoon tea. A place where the most important words in the English language are please, thank you ,sorry and excuse me, these words are repeated a hundred times or more in just one morning!

And finally, a place full of eccentrics, strange people who like to take part in activities such as cheese rolling, bog snorkelling and welly wanging.
