Is it just brits using this or people from all over?

Whathappendexactly Wed 11-Jan-17 20:55:23

All over I think. Definitely America, I've worked thst much out so probably international.

Mostly Brits, quite a few Irish.
Also other nationalities in the UK, Brits abroad, and non Brits not in Britain.

So it varies grin

There's people from all over on here. Predominately the UK smile

Newtothisshiz Wed 11-Jan-17 20:56:59

I thought so, i saw someone write how worried they were about trump and I was thinking why confused as I thought this was a UK thing.

I know at least one Australian.

I would say mainly Brits with a good few people from mainly english speaking nations thrown in, so Ireland, Oz, US, NZ. I think AIBU has a particularly international flavour. It's the only thread I read anyway. I had no idea how liberally people used the word cunt in every day life - thought possibly not IRL? - until I found AIBU.

I'm worried about Trump and I'm a Brit in Britain.
We all should be!

I have seen stray Saffas wandering about.

SwedishEdith Wed 11-Jan-17 21:01:53

I think everyone should be worried about Trump.

JeepersMcoy Wed 11-Jan-17 21:02:01

Everyone should be worried about Trump. I'm a Brit and he scares the shit out of me.

Newtothisshiz Wed 11-Jan-17 21:03:21

Cuntin hell. Yeah it makes sense from what I've been reading anyway. I think foreign countries, such as U.S definitely have different values to what say British people do. You can definitely tell that from some of the responses smile.

Newtothisshiz Wed 11-Jan-17 21:04:23

And good point about Trump actually.

Natsku Wed 11-Jan-17 21:06:17

I reckon people in many countries across the world are worried about Trump!

But it is mostly Brits here, including Brits abroad (like me) and foreigners in Britain but also quite a lot from other English speaking countries. Possibly some that aren't British in non-English speaking countries but I imagine that's rarer.

I'm a Brit but have lived in the Caribbean for the better part of a decade, and use Mumsnet.

Costacoffeeplease Wed 11-Jan-17 21:11:16

I'm from the uk and live in Portugal, been here almost 14 years

Chinnygirl Wed 11-Jan-17 21:14:00

Dutchie here <waves> and I'm also worried about Trump.

The education pages also get a fair few people living in Asia wondering about boarding schools.

geekymommy Thu 12-Jan-17 01:54:43

American in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania here.

MangosteenSoda Thu 12-Jan-17 02:00:02

I think most sentient people are worried about Trumpnik grin

I've noticed lots of Brits in Asia (like me) on here. Lots of Aussies and NZlanders too.

I emigrated to Canada 6 years ago

Pallisers Thu 12-Jan-17 02:05:20

I'm Irish. Also a US citizen and living and rearing children in the US.

I never went on MN until the Irish site Magicmum died. I enjoy it now.

That said MN is extremely anti-american and people post stuff about americans that they wouldn't post about any other nationality. I dip in and out of complaining on those threads. Mostly trying to dip out on the basis that I can't change anyone's mind about that kind of bigotry.

HennaFlare Thu 12-Jan-17 02:07:54

Brit in Canada. I've been in Canada a year, but used MN for 10. It feels like a little bit of 'home'!

JungleInTheRumble Thu 12-Jan-17 02:10:12

Brit in SE Asia here!

fatowl Thu 12-Jan-17 02:11:50

I'm a teacher at a British International school in Asia.

Been here 12 years - used MN for about the last 6.
