New research that studied Google auto-correct terms has revealed exactly what our cousins in mainland Europe think of Great Britain.

Unsurprisingly, in this post-Brexit world, the majority of Europeans don’t seem that fond of us over here in Blighty, with the Germans asking why we’re so stupid while the Dutch want to know why we’re so ugly.

The study was conducted by SEO experts Search Laboratory using Google’s autocomplete feature and what they found was less than flattering, with the general consensus being that we were thick, ugly and dirty, The Sun reports.

Here’s a breakdown of the auto complete results, along with our best attempts at answering the curious Europeans.

Spain – Why are the English so strange? Blame the fact we’re an island, it’s the only excuse we’ve got. 

Portugal – Why are the English crybabies? We have an unwarranted belief in our own self-importance, we used to rule 1/4 of the world don’t you know!

France – Why do we call the English ‘rosbif’? This comes from the French mistakenly believing we can’t cook.

Search Laboratory explained that search numbers peaked at almost 12.5 million searches around the time of the Brexit vote in June.

However, curious Europeans have continued to ask Google about our fair island in the months afterwards.

In a statement, Search Laboratory said: 

The biggest search story of the year in the UK has undoubtedly been Brexit.

Users from all over the continent have been searching queries in the hundreds of thousands every month since February, regarding Britain’s now impending exit from the European Union.

Meanwhile, here in the UK if you type into Google ‘why is Europe’ autocomplete generates ‘so undemocratic’, ‘called Europe’ and ‘so divided’, so it seems we’ve all also been busy googling nonsense.

Learning what Europe thinks of us is actually quite depressing but it’s fine, we’re going to hang with our new best mate America, everyone know’s he’s cooler.
