Here's what the CIA makes of us - major consumers of Asian heroin apparently:

Stereotypical essay on British food - we've moved on a little - but your exam marker might be an Anglophobe:

A bit more like it - loads of links:

Hope it helps.

black pudding, blood pudding to you yummy

yorkshire puddings...........originally a food of the poor was made of flour and water too be baked under the roast to catch the highly nutritional juices that were wasted before, it then was used as a plate and eaten http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cornish pasties where designed for tin miners, it was a means of packaging their lunch of meat and potatoes into a pastry shell which could then be wrapped in a scarf or hankie and carried down the mine, at lunch time you just eat the lot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Had a look on that LF.

Most astonishing fact I noted was the number of mobile phone users (61.091 million (2004)) actually outnumbers the human population of these fair islands (60,609,153 (July 2006 est.)).

Always interesting to see what a top-notch intelligence gathering organisation with the awesome technology and resources at it's disposal and a finger on the pulse has on us; this was my favourite:-

Political pressure groups and leaders:
Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament; Confederation of British Industry; National Farmers' Union; Trades Union Congress
(that's it) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
