I don't suppose there can be a ban on the phrase "center(ed)" around. Not only is it ungrammatical, it is geometrically impossible. ((Surely the thing it is around would be the center! AlanE 02:09, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
23-OCT-2007 - It has to be said your section on Religion leaves a lot to be desired. For a start Religion plays very little part of the daily life of the English; and It has to be noted most of the English are not practising anything and are in fact rather hostile to organised religions, though not the individuals who practise. To state anything otherwise is a plain untruth no matter what you would like to believe. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AJCG (talk)

I hope I'm not nitpicking, but Henry VII is one of our best-known kings. The Wars of the Roses are a key part of the history curriculum in state schools, I believe - and every child knows how to remember the colours of the rainbow: Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain. I won't change this myself, but would welcome others' viewpoint.Sophierabbitte 12:36, 10 January 2011 (EST)
Some of the people in my class forgot who was prime minister in WW2, and when WW2 even ended. One of them was doing history as a qualification. I rest my case.
Why is this in the intro? Give examples! We have a conservative government for Pete's sake who don't give a hoot about the poor!
I changed the part where it said that the monarchy remained permanently "french". Even if the joining between Stephen of Blois and Empress Matilda is seen as "French", the glorious rebellion changes the monarchy entirely to being English. StevenH 18:14, 3 September 2011 (EDT)
The more I read the more I feel this is the case. We are more religious than you think, It is just we don't go shouting our mouths of about it. And entries that criticise our sport, our spelling, our Church and believe it or not, our CONSERVATISM, which, because it does not have a strong religious element is somehow liberal, and I am offended to be called a liberal.
