There's nothing like a healthy dose of self-loathing. And what better way to do that than to hone in on some uncomfortable British truths?
That seems to be the idea with these Reddit users, who created a thread to moan about the pitfalls of this great country - just hours before the country decides whether to leave Europe.
It's all in jest.
There was a fair point about our attitude
We’re really quite an arrogant country/people. As well we should be! We’re far superior to those uncultured swine that populate not-Britain! Never mind what the experts say!
The country is swimming in rubbish
If everyone just made an effort to make sure this place didn't look like a shit hole I wouldn't mind living here, but instead it's 50 cans of woodpecker by the verge and a tree made almost entirely out of space raider packets; it's like a countrywide depression that won't end.
Stop wearing that controversial goal like a badge of pride
England will never appear in any Euro or World Cup finals without the TV commentators mentioning 1966.
Tescos isn't a bargain anymore...
Tescos is overpriced. Greggs is complete garbage that barely qualifies for sale.
And in case you're wondering about the rest of the world...

Also the trains
UK trains are a Royal Pain In The A...
[Wetherspoons’ pub food] is tasty, but it's shit quality apart from the multi grain bread they use to make toast.
Fry-ups? Beans-on-toast? Surely these are good things...
The food here is a bit shit
But the biggest truth of all
We’re really not that bad.
Self deprecation aside, Brits are really very good at complaining.
Wouldn't have it any other way.
