with a huge hint of envy. most of the hate comes from our near neighbours.
won the football world cup
won the rugby union world cup
won the rugby league world cup
clean sweep if we win the cricket world cup although we have been losing finalists 3 times.

More pity these days I would imagine we're like the Villa of international sport. Living off past glories.

Cricket is England and Wales. Likewise GB have won the RLWC not England. Jones didn't help himself picking a clown as Captain mind.

I don't like using the word hate but I can assure you that the rugby rivalry was in place and was just as strong long before England won the world cup.

Generally speaking they tend to laugh at English delusions regarding sport.

In the most part their 'hatred', or rather loathing and derision, runs far deeper than that.

IMO we are arrogant if you compare to most places in Europe at least.

Both to be honest

But I think the reason Scotland, Wales, Northern Island hate England on 'jealousy' is not because we've won the Football and Rugby world cup once. Its more to do with they are sick with people thinking the United Kingdom/England are one of the same thing due to our larger population. For example a Welsh friend of mine cannot stand it when Americans say 'the queen of England'. We also have nearly all of the United Kingdom landmarks and the home of politics is also in London.

In terms of arrogance its true that the English generally do make fun of the other home nations, especially the Welsh. We've all heard the 'sheep' and 'third world country' taunts after all. This only increases the ill feeling towards us from our United Kingdom neighbours.

Its arrogance, we think we "punch above our weight", when basically the rest of the world look at us (political & sport wise) as the noisy brat in the corner, who thinks they are "special". (The special relationship with USA, we want special deals from the EU for examples)

Socially, we (generalisations) can't be arsed to learn languages, exported hooligans, export lager louts, live in ex-pat ghettoes, are all covered in tattoos, take all inclusive holidays which give nothing back to the locals, are always tagging on the coat tails of the USA, have a "we had an empire / commonwealth" attitude.

For clarity, I am not saying I agree or that any of these "views" are accurate, but they are perceptions of the British and more exclusively the English !

For our size we do punch well above our weight, we have no choice but to learn languages especially if you want to be served in a shop :D, but in all seriousness most schools teach at least one and sometimes two languages, I have no tattoos but if I was Spanish and jody marsh started sunbathing I wouldn't moan .
