Everyone says that British people are cold and detached. Until they go for a drink with them.
In reality, British people are very conscious about their intimate relations. Once you have a British friend, it is a friend for life. This glorious country has a reputation to keep, about manners and education in the most diverse situation. It used to be a country of explorers, colonists and traders, and even though innumerable bonds were sealed with a Gentleman's word (or sword, in the old days!) the style and the character of British people is unmistakably and lordly COOL.
Tip of the day: When going on a business dinner with British people, eat a small piece of butter before the meal to contain the devastating effect of the alcohol inundation you'll be facing, and try not to talk about work too much. A business dinner with British people is a bonding and humanly very fulfilling experience. Watch out hangover haters, you're in for big trouble.
