Europe / Brexit / Mosconi Cup?

That brits feel special in regards to the rest of Europeans, I can understand, it has to do with history and colonialism.
But if you ask French, Spanish and Portugese people (to some extent Dutch and Belgian people too) they will all claim to be unique and to have a special place in history, separate from being Europeans. These countries all had big colonial empires, wich lead to so much of their culture and identity, that remenants of this is still obvious a century later.

Maybe if the French and Spanish etc didn't hate us so much we'd feel more European?

You're about 18 different nationalities...it's annoying...;)

You are pretty mixed race yourself if you're of European stock...
...wth, the Vikings and Norsemen made relatives of us all from pillaging and raping....
....the Vikings became known as the Viking Rus in east Europe....
...so you're related to the Russians whether you like it or not.

And English is a Germanic language....our ancestors were throwing spears at each other
in the Black Forest.

And most Europeans have Neanderthal genes....haven't you noticed that when you're in
a cave, you have an uncontrollable urge to draw pictures?

I have noticed an uncontrolled urge to hit people over the head with a pool stick from time to time, does that count?
