Why do people think that all British people are posh?
Possibly because the most famous British people are the royal family, all of whom speak with very posh accents. The same is true of politicians such as Tony Blair and David Cameron. Also, films and TV tend to focus on London and the south of England, again where accents are seen as more upper-class than in the north of England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

All posh people don't actually act weird and silly. Some are just like me and you.
Many people stereo-type us as really posh people who all know the queen and drink tea all the time, we're not! We're like everyone else, some are annoying some kind, some shy, etc. Everyone I know from England are just normal, nice people.
Think about all the jobs that were there.
Probably because the only contact most American people have with English people is via the medium of television and films, where those particular accents stand out or are commonly used to portray 'typical' English people. because in TV, especially in cartoons like the Simpsons, English people are portrayed as either posh or cockney, when, in reality, most English people aren't actually like that. I'm english, so I should know!
We dress like Americans like ordinary people we are not all that posh although what you see in movies people think we dress in suits we don't we are like any of you guys although you might find that the buissness men do dress in suits and all that royalty and everything but yea we are like any old person like you and your friends

Yes...when Australia isn't British Territory. I am doing a project and i have to do some surveys and i have found out from the surveys that people think it should be changed because it needs to include the aboriginal flag and it has the british union jack on it and we are not british. They think we shouldn't change it because they have been australians all of their life and they don't want it to… Read More
Equilateral is "posh" already. In simple words it means the sides of some object are all of the same length.

Navigation Acts protected English and Colonial ships People who benefit from the Navigation Act are British citizens all all-British citizens should reap its benefits Acts were designed to protect the Colonials who we're novices when it came to trading with our countries
Thousands of people have climbed to the summit of Mount Everest. I don't think there is a list of all their names but you can see the names of all the British climbers at the link provided.
It's just the way the accent was formed in the original English language, however, not all English people speak in posh accents, you should hear Northern people from England! They speak in a very informal accent, and Londoners don't speak very formally either. I think the most formal speaking area in England is the West.
Elizabeth and she is not so naughty. When you read all the books she is actually good but some people make her loose her temper and get her in trouble.

They wore posh clothes but not as posh as the 1st class passengers. so they wore braclets, necklaces and all the girly stuff. :)
Not many people know about the amount of people who migrated here or who they are. Some of them are: Shaggy. Peter Andre. Gino D'Acampo. Julius Caesar. Jedward. All i can say is that there have been many people (especialy posh people) have migrated to the UK.
With the exception of the reigning Monarch, the people on British bank notes are all dead, but have played a significant role in their respective fields in British history.
It turned into a magical land called Straya c*nt, it was filled with bogans (the highest of all wizards) and upper class posh people (low powered wizards). The British tried to reclaim the land but the magical bogans jumped to defend their country and the upper class posh gits. After successfully defending their country the bogans decided it was time to sit down and watch the pies in the granny while drinkin' a VB. The… Read More

no it is for all nationalities
because they didn't believe and trust the British at all
Is it that people who have grown learning British English end up speaking with a British accent regardless of their nationality?
Not at all. The differences between British and American English are written; accent is an entirely different matter. Think about it: if everyone in the UK suddenly started spelling words using only the American spellings, would their accents all switch?
Depends on where you are. British people traditionally cook a goose for Christmas. But most people think British food is crap, including the British, which is why they eat so much curry now. Chicken tikka masala is very popular in Britain, at Christmas as well as all year round. So the answer you are looking for is most likely chicken.
Queens and kings speak posh so you have to speak posh, say all your t's and dont use words like has'nt , won't ect say has not or will not.
How did Americans australians new zelanders canadians and south africans get their accent if they were decendants from british people?
All of these countries were colonized by British people from different regions of Britain, not to mention to earlier populations and immigrants from other countries. Not all people in Britain speak with the same accent--RP, what most people outside of Britain think of as a "British accent" is actually spoken by a very small number of people. Based on the political and social climate of the British Isles, people from different regions would be more… Read More
The actual process of hearing is the same for everyone in the world. However, what people think about music is different depending on culture and generation. Do you all of the same music as your parents? Grandparents? Children?
there are rather a few unfortunately: -one is that we all have crooked teeth or just bad dental hygiene in general, which is not true -people think most of the men here are either chimney sweeping cockneys, adorable stumbling posh hugh grant replicas or 80's skinhead thugs -for some reason a lot of people think our women are ugly, but anyone who's set their eyes on an English Rose knows otherwise -we drink a lot… Read More
I am not sure what you want to know. Before independence, British currency was used in all the colonies and was the national currency. After independence, the continental congress coined money which was a national currency. People did not fully trust the new currency and British currency was used as well.
They are all posh

ANSWER 1 yes ............ that's kinda realistic........ NEW ANSWER Yeah of course, don't tell me you think Brits live in cottages and drink tea all day and talk posh?!? because we don't.
The proper adjective British means of or from Great Britain (island kingdom of England, Scotland, and Wales). The term is also used to mean typical of Great Britain or its natives, such as accents or pronunciations. The noun (the British), along with the plural Britons, is used as a collective noun (demonym) for people of the British Isles. Geographically, The British Isles are the main islands of Britain and Ireland and all of their off-shore… Read More

British people like all parts of Ireland. British people visit Ireland on holidays and for other reasons, and even move there, to all parts. What you may be thinking of is Northern Ireland being part of the United Kingdom, but that has nothing to do with what parts of Ireland British people like or don't like.

people dont really speak british, it's generally English.... and in alot of places all over the world
Golf is played by people from all over the world. Golf used to be a game reserved for only the very richest, but now it is accessible for everyone. There still however is a stigma around golfers that they are all very posh and stuck up, which is true in some cases.
Britain is an island consisting of England, Scotland and Wales. People from it are British. Some people in Northern Ireland also claim British nationality. Europe is a continent of around 50 countries, and includes Britain. The people in Britain are different to people in other parts of Europe, but then the people all around Europe are different to each other, so there is no simple answer to that which distinguishes all other Europeans from the… Read More

No, all of the countries that were once in the British Empire were all freed at the end of World War 2 as Britain was nearly bankrupt! Also, I don't think France was ever in the British Empire.
If you mean 'Is Germany only for the rich?' then the answer is no. After all, it is not a micro-state or tax haven.
They're all British except Niall, who is from Mullingar in Ireland.
