British tropers, unite!:

I thought about regionalising, but British tropers of every stripe are rather outnumbered by our cousins across the Atlantic.

So, calling all Scottish/Welsh/English/Northern Irish tropers!

I'm from the South of England (Buckinghamshire, to be precise), currently studying Oop North in Sheffield.

Not from Britain, but I expected the OP to be Bobby G.

Bobby G is the Quintessentially British Gentleman.

In any case, I'm not from Britain.

I plan to rectify this ASAP.

What about ex-pats?

What's the ex-pat experience like, Morven?

A chronic shortage of good tea would be the first thing I'd worry about.

Fortunately, being in a big city (there are several British-goods stores in the greater Los Angeles area) and having the Internet at hand make things like that a lot easier. Plus, Americans have increasingly taken to tea of late, at least the trendy & hipster crowds have.

I do have quite a goodly number of thousand PG Tips teabags around the house, ordered in bulk, and six giant tins of Colman's Mustard. You can get the prepared kind easily enough, but the powder is a little scarcer.

Giant size jars of Marmite are harder to get. There's a store about 40 miles away that has them for a good price, though.

Hello, I'm a Londoner. Born here and currently living and working here too. I spent my formative years in the countryside of kent and my student days in Durham. Happy back in the city now though.

I was born in London too (Hampstead); moved to Montacute in Somerset when I was about six months old, moved to Ballantrae in Ayrshire, Scotland, when I was about five, moved to Ayr when I was about seven, moved to the Durham area when I was about ten, and then moved to Wallingford, Oxfordshire, when I was about thirteen or fourteen. Went back to London for university (Imperial College), then back to Oxfordshire. Moved to California when I was twenty-four.

Do you get to vote in the upcoming referendum on whether or not to adopt AV? I seem to remember something on the card saying that overseas citizens can vote in the referendum.

I have absolutely no idea, but I'll check up on it.

Originally from Birmingham (not got the accent any more though, for better or worse) living in Cambridgeshire at the moment with potential to be anywhere where there is work.

By the powers invested in me by tabloid-reading imbeciles, I pronounce you guilty of paedophilia!

This is...a disturbingly small number of British tropers. I was hoping to find some more people in the same timezone. tongue

I'm a Londoner. Born, raised and still here (and here for the next four years at least, so long as the PHD doesn't crash and burn).

There certainly are a number of other Brits floating around the forum, they probably just don't come in here.

Oh, this coven exists. And I was mentioned. Hi folks.

Bobby G is the Quintessentially British Gentleman.

Uh... what the fuck? How did that happen?

[up] Apparently Britishness + Correct Forum Etiquette = BRITISH GENTLEMAN. Top hat and monocle may or may not be included.

Man. If I was getting a top hat and monocle I'd be fine with that, that'd be cool. But as is, lame.

Besides, I can't be a terribly proper gentleman without a monocle, because a terribly proper gentleman without a monocle CAN HARDLY BE CONSIDERED A TERRIBLY PROPER GENTLEMAN AT ALL.

I had no idea this thread existed. I need to check this part of the forum more often.

But I'm another Southerner, from Hampshire. Nothing terribly interesting.
