19 things that make you uniquely British

Because tea is a serious business and David Attenborough is just awesome.

Brits are very, well, British. We are proud of being British, we are ashamed of being British, we see ourselves as being a powerful nation and always moan about how powerless we now are. Sometimes we love being British, sometimes we hate it.

Essentially we are full of contradictions.

It may be a vast generalisation but we're all very similar. We have our differences but when it comes to down to it we all share a common set of eccentricities and traits.

Buzzfeed took to the /britishproblems sub-reddit and hand-picked the best of what makes us British. Which, despite being Americans, they nailed.
