i think you may have just been meeting the wrong British people, or it may just be how some of our accent come across to some people because we aren't all 'have a nice day y'all ' and stuff, we are in general a very nice and friendly nation, come talk to me and you'll find out!! :)

Yes, we are all snooty and aloof, and as a Canadian, you all wear flannel shirts, shoot every meal you eat, live in log cabins which you build yourself, and cut down trees for a living, (or is that just a habit now?)

I'm so glad we have reached this accord.

This isn't only true of british people. Human beings are programmed to think about survival, they forms groups with similar people to protect themselves and increase their chances of survival, anyone who is different is a threat and therefore on the receiving end of sometimes less than pleasant behaviour. Snobbishness is a term used when british people behave this way but they really aren't alone in doing this.

Are you American? Because we're not all like the British shown on t.v.
snobbishness tends to lie with money - generally middle classes are snobby and that's worldwide.

You obviously didn't visit Liverpool while you were here. Liverpool people are so down to earth and genuine. Their far from snobby. I guess you met a bad group of people here in the UK but lets face it theres snobs everywhere in the world. You should visit again and come to Liverpool its cool here and I doubt they'll be much snobs, and if there is most of them grew up on housing and council estates so theres nothing to be snobby about.

Snobby? We're not, we're just generally superior.... It's probably the Queen's fault. She makes people Lords, Dukes and gives them titles and if you don't speak properly - you're generally speaking only fit to repair roads and collect garbage. Occasionally, people with regional accents make it to positions of power. But rarely get to make it into the aristocracy. Women of course do better - they just marry in to it. But we do have an whole generation that say Da - instead of The. I think it's a Russian influence.... That has changed to dat, and isn't it to Innit, apostrophes have virtually disappeared from the written word. Incidentally, we are British with a capital B. I was reading today about an native American Indian who was a princess. Her royal highness wasn't treated with much respect it seems. Maybe, that is a problem with Americans they envy the British their royalty and refuse to recognise their own....

I wouldn't say that on the whole British people were snobbish. It is the stereotype along with us being aloof and reserved that we have to live with I suppose. Most British people that went abroad in the past were the richer folk who could afford to. At the time they did have a sense that they were better than others. They saw themselves as having a great Empire so they thought that must mean they were a cut above. Sadly that now seems to be the common perception of ordinary British people. All rolled up brollies, pin striped suits, bowler hats and "Yoiks Tally Ho and Away doncha know?" Now that more people in our country go abroad they are quite mystified by this kind of reaction to us.
Your statement is a sweeping generalisation akin to me saying "Why are all Americans cowboys who like to ride the open prairies shooting everyone with their rifles?" 60 million people live in the UK. We can't all be snobs.

Maybe you are mistaking the accent for snobbishness. Generalizations are never a good thing. (And that's one of the few generalizations I allow myself to make.)

British people are so snobby, because in modern society we were the last nation to rule most of the world.

90% of inventions and breakthrough, over the last 200 years have been british...and that includes inventing America.

Also, English is spoken in every corner of this planet? Why is that?

Basically put, we are snobby because we are better. We are above everyone because we belong to the greatst country for the last 500 years!

And i am also scottish...which makes me evern better than the rest of the UK!

Hooray for me!

If you've only met snobs then you were lucky. Just wait until you meet some reverse-snobs.

Anyway, we are above everyone else. Why is that so difficult to understand? It's not about money, power, or how many hamburgers you can stuff down your gullet. It's about class. Sheer, bloody class. We're brimming with it, lad, and don't you forget it.

Ha ha snobby I feel insulted not all English people are like that, that's just the same as saying that all Muslims are terrorists. Ignorance try meeting some real English people and you'll notice a difference, I grew up in a loving family where I did'nt have everything handed to me on a plate.
And why judge people you have never met.

Maybe they felt like you were stupid or something. Sometimes people who make large scale generalizations are viewed by others as stupid. Stupid people don't get treated as equals.

By saying "why are british people so snobby in general" you are making a LARGE SCALE GENERALIZATION - which merely means that you are applying your opinion to a majority of a group - I never said you were saying that ALL british people were snobby. In case YOU can read dumbass.

I say steady on. Us British chaps are real gentlemen. We just love the better things in life. One buys ones food in Fortnams and clothes In Seville Row. The idea that one should acknowledge you when passing in the Rolls does not mean I have to like you. At Oxford we were taught to be above the normal people and if you do not like it F**k off.

I am British and I am not snobby or think I am above any one else, you shouldn't judge everybody as a whole there are are all kinds of people in England and I dont think they are snobby, well maybe some of the upper class could be.

British people have a different type of humour to American people that's what makes us seem different.
