And yeah, non-mixer taps, although I think they are dying out.

That the Tories keep getting voted in (England) no matter what shitshow they produce.
It's been a weird decade for politics. 2015 and 2019 were both Brexit elections. 2017 was an outlier. That said I can't see much changing for a good decade.

Not talking to or even making eye contact with strangers. (More a Southern thing of course)

We are generally considered cold. Or stoic as people justifying it call it.

That said leaving the south is a REVELATION. Londoners are horrible.

I imagine non-Brits find the fact that Britain "owns" a chunk of Ireland rather bewildering. I know I do.

The first thing that comes to my mind is BAD WEATHER, but maybe it's us being very lucky.

Obviously I broadly understand how it ended up that way historically. But it's still bollocks.

Yeah, I do too but it must look super weird from the outside. See also: Gibralter.

Oh God, attacking our crisps is the line.
Not attacking them at all, I just don't understand why they are a national obsession. True that I rarely eat snacks so I don't appreciate things like that.

So we jumped straight from Ireland to crisps, eh? Just can't hide it, can we?
