Nobody is calling me what I am, that is the whole point.

You consider it clever that someone is English, British and European all at
Your naive incredulity at this very normal thing is a treat to watch.

You live in Europe, this may be scientifically proven.

There is no room for opinion, here, we may save that for conjecture and
analyse your strange anti-European psychoses later. I'm beginning to have
sympathy for someone so bigoted as to compromise his integrity in such a
shameful and embarrassing manner. I really think you need help. If your

I suspect you are a racist. An old-school racist, with a healthy dose of
good, old-fashioned wife-beating thrown in for good measure. Earlier I
wondered why you eschewed so violently, the Welsh heritage of your father. I
now suspect, given your obvious irrationality, social ineptitude and poor
grasp of reality, that you have a deep loathing of your father stemming from
him either beating your mother or interfering with you when you were a
child. You have all the classic symptoms. Get help.

geographical descriptor wider than your country, but narrower than your
