40. British are not European anyway
I can guarantee you that a large percentage of Europeans think this. Heck, large chunk of British do not consider themselves European to begin with, unless they need help fighting a war, or need assistance from some German bank to bail out their eternally miserable economy or when it comes to matters of international business. Then they pretend to be bigger Europeans than anybody, spouting junk about "unity and European family". Case in point: Tony Blair.
