The results of a poll from the British people are online this evening, detailing some of the things they love most about their country. The Telegraph is reporting that 7,000 participants took part in this poll which voted Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling (34th place) and British audio book narrator Stephen Fry (21st place) among the things that the British people hold in high regard. Such other iconic figures in Britain as The Beatles, James Bond, the Queen, Stonehenge, and fish and chips, which came in first place, were also included on the list. Andrew Smith, a spokesperson for the company which sponsored the list, feels this list “gives a fascinating insight into exactly what it means to be British – our food, history, Royalty, our many wonderful characters and all the fabulous places we love to visit.” You can find the complete list of the “Best of British Top 50” via this link.
