So it's ok to hate the British?


This story makes me mad. On 9/11 of all days we get this story

http://uk.movies.yahoo.com/11092008/...ned-ira-0.html

Tell me what the difference is between saying what she has said and saying if she was Muslim she'd join Al Qaeda? Imagine the outrage then!!

Ok,dont want to get in the right and wrongs of the politics as such,it's just the ignorance of the comment really

Yea, just what the world needs, another idiot actress. People like her think that because they make movies that their opinions should out weigh those of the common folk.

I hate all of these "Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda" people.

Re: So it's ok to hate the British?


If you think that's bad you should see what Marion Cotillard said.

Some people are just stupid.
Some are confused but some are just plain stupid.

Terrible day today, remember watching Sky News and BBC News at work 7 years ago and not believing what I was seeing.
Because of the time difference (UK is 5 hours ahead and most of Europe 6 hours ahead) everybody here was awake, aware and glued to a TV.

Good grief! Why do these people think we want to hear what they have to say?

As far as 9/11/01 goes I remember it perfectly. i was just leaving Heathrow airport returning from the US after being at the top of one of the towers a few days before

Re: So it's ok to hate the British?


I'd like to hear more of the background of her statement (the media typically only reports sound bytes instead of everything that is said), but, either way, the critical thing to me is how morons like her are clueless about the world around them and then they are in a movie and get one side of a story or issue (and the writer's one side at that) and then believe they know what's what. Typical uneducated fool.

Fine! Let her give up her Hollywood riches and send her to live in Ulster!
It's all glamorous to the celebs until they're hungry and being shot at. :P

I don't hate the brits. I feel sorry for them. The might Brittish empire got spanked by a bunch of roustabouts.

All countries have idiots.

The brits are our best friends and allies- we need to keep it that way.

Yeah after colonising, civilising and educating the known world for 200 years and then ruling it for 200 more leaving it's legacy/culture/values behind so we may have kick a$$ countries like the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

I think all in all the British Empire was very beneficial to the world as a whole.

Do you ever ask yourself how can a country right on the door step of the mighty USA, preferential trading partner and a massive insourcing powerhouse like Mexico who was never threatened by communism or WWII be doing so poorly economically and has a rich/poor disparity that's worse than most industrialised countries?
Culture/values and legacy my friend, culture and legacy.
The British Empire kicked a$$ and I'm glad it did it as well as that as now I don't need to learn another language to communicate with fine people on this fine forum.
