Yet again the UK is expected to struggle - if not actually be in last place - in the Eurovision Song Contest, regardless of the quality of our entry. This is apparently representative of a hatred of Britain by other countries. But why? Plenty of people from disadvantaged nations risk their lives to try and get into Britain. I can’t think of a more tolerant place on the planet. Unlike Russia, we are not in the least aggressive or tyrannical. The decision to leave the EU was one we were entitled to make, and other members came do the same if they wish. I could go on. But what in your opinion is behind anti-British feeling?

UK entry is fav to win behind Ukraine for obvious reasons !
Rant and rave continuously.
Whilst spouting crap.
My feeling is that you are making it up
Egypt is not anti-British - they look back on dear old Blighty as a benign operation considering the corruption that came next
( Nasser's cronies, not Nasser)

Ukraine clearly isnt

isnt it more useful to discuss whether Turkey veto of NATO membership of Finland and Sweden will get up and run
Iraq and Afghanistan didn't help
As already observed:
The UK is second favourite to win.
Once more the yearly reminder that we can indulge in moaning and self-pity like the best of them (a bit, dare I say it, like Russia, although with no cause)
//we can indulge in moaning and self-pity//
Seems to be what some English people thrive on;-/
lozza dont be unfair to ABers - they are just a mirror to the society we are
i don't think that we are hated by all nations, maybe some in the middle east, but in some skewed way that is understandable.
So right Mr Pedant.
What is skewed about hating a country that engaged in an illegal war against your country, resulting in the death of many thousands of your citizens?
Hate is a bit strong, Blip, but have you thought it’s your history that hasn’t made Britain loveable?
As for the most tolerant? I guess you’re being tongue in cheek. :-)
envy, they envy our history our culture what we gave the world, they seethe with humiliation over their own sad histories and long to be us. That's why.
09.29 . People like this who never stop singing ,
..."Rule Britannia".
I don’t think Britain is hated at all, Judy to make that clear.

Yes some bitter and twisted people do, but you could say that about any country.
Not sure who Judy is …
"Countries" can't hate - only people can hate & don't think most people of other countries hate Britain. (Well, maybe the French cos we beat them up a lot historically!)
Who is Judy?
Oh, would some Power give us the gift
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would from many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion
Oh you’re a card, TTT. :-)

Not applicable to Spain. Britain is certainly not hated here, I am English, have lived here for over 40 years and have never ever, ever , experienced one Spanish person hating GB. Plenty culture and history here too.
