Britons think French deserve their 'negative stereotype': poll

Oct 31 12:45 PM US/Eastern


Eighty-six percent of people in Britain aged 18 to 30 think the French deserve "a popular negative stereotype," suggests an opinion poll conducted for an Anglo-French art show in London.

That compares to 27 percent of like-aged people in France who felt the British held a negative stereotype of their nation, according to the survey.

The informal poll of 500 people in London, and as many in Paris, was commissioned by the organisers of an Entente Cordiale art show that opened in west London over the weekend. No margin of error was disclosed.

"British people should face up to the fact that they have an enormous problem when it comes to the French," said exhibition organiser Richard Kaye, a Brition resident in France.

"The British will make jokes about the French which would, if made to the detriment of other national or ethnic groups, be considered extremely racist and dangerous."

The British seem to have long memories, probably sub-consciously still blame the French for helping the USA colonies achieve ndependence.:)

Now, now, hating the frogs is an ancient and honourable British custom. Even in these trying times we musn't forget our traditions. :P

Heh, I'm a man of traditions, but I do find it odd that Britain dumps all of its good and cool traditions (even foxhunting, something I'd really like to do myself one day) except this one.

I jest of course, there is nothing wrong about making jokes about other nations, as long as you can catch as well as pitch.

I suppose the French can't sleep the night because some tea drinkers don't like them. Care about your own problem, aka your cities full of pakis and forget those evildoer frenchies.:rolleyes:
