I have to agree with Strong Bad in his overall opinion of the English. This is no doubt an over-reaction: I started off as an anglophile, but the more I learned of history, the more my estimation of the English eroded. Current trends in the UK are not helping, either.
That said, I like to imagine sitting in a corner and listening to a conversation between G. K. Chesterton, Dr. Johnson, and William Cobbett. St. Thomas More should probably be there, too.
