John Le Carre, writer

We've already recognized that it is absolutely essential for British children to learn other languages and we will be working hard to put further strategies in place to ensure this.

The truth, Prime Minister, is that you have run out of our money. The country as a whole is now in negative equity. Every British child is born owing around 20,000 pounds. Servicing the interest on that debt is going to cost more than educating the child.

Daniel Hannan, politician

The British are so funny. It's like they can't believe I lived in Hackney. 'You could live in Bondi Beach. Why would you want to live in 'Ackney?' But Hackney's fantastic. I'm serious. There are so many artists there. I loved the markets, the parks, the pubs, the diversity. It was a cultural melting-pot.

Rose Byrne, actress

Basically, I have no place in organized politics. By coming to the British Parliament, I've allowed the people to sacrifice me at the top and let go the more effective job I should be doing at the bottom.

Bernadette Devlin, politician

I'm still a member of the Empire! Although I sometimes feel like an American with a British accent - you get contaminated after so long.

David Millar, athlete

Americans are a lot more open, of course. There's something more declamatory in the way you express emotions. It's a stereotype but it's true. British people can appear repressed in expressing emotions. Not very good at self-evaluating, or affirming situations, touching, anything like that.

Emily Blunt, actress

Ryan Giggs will go down as the most successful British footballer of all time and I cannot see anyone ever overtaking him. He's on the brink of his 13th league title, after all.

Gary Neville, athlete

More than 55,000 men from Bomber Command lost their lives, of whom 38,000 were British. That's one in 10 of all the British servicemen lost in the Second World War. It beggars belief that there has not been some recognition for what they gave until now.

Carol Vorderman, entertainer

My first outdoor cooking memories are full of erratic British summers, Dad swearing at a barbecue that he couldn't put together, and eventually eating charred sausages, feeling brilliant.

Jamie Oliver, chef

The British press has been unfair to me and the public has followed.

Joss Stone, musician

Sometimes Americans don't quite get my sense of humor. My good ol' British sarcasm seems to go over their heads.

Lee Westwood, athlete

When I was in England doing Romeo and Juliet as a child star, I was interviewed by the British press, who are even more vicious and cruel than the Americans. So I have been extremely guarded ever since.

Claire Bloom, actress

British chancellor is telling the rest of Europe it must abandon democracy. It's appalling.

Nigel Farage, politician

After my grandfather's plane took enemy fire, he was denied permission to land at the first available airstrip. In that classic British bureaucratic way, they said he had to go back to your own airbase in the Midlands. They crashed between the coast and the airfield.

Tom Hooper, director

The British have been particularly shy about the issues of financial regulation, and attentive only to the interests of the City - hence their reluctance to see the introduction of a tax on financial transactions and tax harmonisation in Europe.

Francois Hollande, president

I'm incredibly boring; I had a very happy childhood. I never starved, nor did I have a silver spoon in my mouth. I'm one of those terribly middle-of-the-road, British middle class, South London gents.

Jude Law, actor

I go out with a lot of British people. Some of them say I sound a little tipsy.

Callan McAuliffe, actor

I came to Los Angeles and did auditions for television. I made a terrible mess of most of them and I was quite intimidated. I felt very embarrassed and went back to London. I got British television jobs intermittently between the ages of 23 and 27, but it was very patchy.

Michael Fassbender, actor

I've done my share of period stuff. I'm not sure why, but people say I have a period face. The bread and butter of British TV is Jane Austen adaptations and bridges and bonnets and boats and horses.

Tom Hiddleston, actor

British aren't really known for their physical loveliness but firemen, generally speaking, are gorgeous.

Emma Thompson, actress

I live in L.A. so I worry my kids aren't that connected to Britain, I suppose I don't want them to become American kids. We try to get back three or four times a year. When they go to school they speak with a British-American accent but when they come home to us they go back to their British accent.

Kevin McKidd, actor

I think sensitive is the wrong description of me. I'm British, actually, so quite bad at expressing myself in conversation, as any ex-girlfriend will tell you. I'm probably emotionally stunted.

James Blunt, musician

I love that pre-mod jazz look of the late Fifties, the Steve McQueen style that influenced the British modernists.

Martin Freeman, actor

The best research for playing a drunk is being a British actor for 20 years.

Michael Caine, actor

The British seizure of Hongkong was an aspect of one of the most ugly crimes of the British Empire: the takeover and destruction of India, and the use of India to flood China with opium.

David Steel, politician

You are a member of the British royal family. We are never tired, and we all love hospitals.
