Just as a general rule, please do NOT create your own new Being British threads in future. That's a task I keep for myself only.

As you all know, this thread is for all things to do with Britain, and that includes customs, school, food, work, etc.

Please do remember that we do have a large base of users who join us from the UK and Ireland on these boards, and we've had plenty of reponses from them in the past. Therefore, please could ONLY Brits answer things in here.

Make sure you're polite at all times - particularly if you're correcting/disagreeing with an answer some has posted previously. Remember we all make mistakes and deserve to be treated with respect. Points will be deducted if you are attacking users personally.

And as always, you're reminded that there is time difference for all of you living anywhere but in GMT zones, so you may have a while to wait before someone replies to your post. Be patient, please!

So have fun, and enjoy your discussions!
