Qatar 2022 in FIFA World Cup / Bids Posted January 6, 2014 · Report reply Hmmmm. Don't Brits normally say "British"? "English" sounds so, I dunno, 18th century... Tony E, this is a rhetorical remark. NO NEED for you to reply. Of all the Brits I've met, very few identify themselves first as British - Welsh, Scottish, English - they all proudly flaunt their red dragons, thistles and roses first. Then the Union Flag and Queen. Compared to other countries, a Canadian overseas likely wouldn't self describe as a Albertan or Ontarian, just as an American wouldn't self describe as a Californian or Minnesotan...except maybe the Quebecois and Texans.
