British Buffet Ideas

stereotypes2

After a brief conversation with it’s writer, I compiled a list to include as many British stereotypes, character traits, cultural references and of course food, about the United Kingdom. I didn’t include any Northern Irish traits, because of they generally seen as general Irish traits and I didn’t want to anger Irish people, who may think I was treating the Republic as part of the UK. I love Ireland and their people. My Scottish heritage is a kindred spirit to the Celtic Emerald Isle. Always our EQUAL, never our lesser or dominion. Peace Peace Love Love across the Irish Sea.
