Funny #ThingsThatLeaveBritainReeling Tweets

Brits Respond to the Suggestion "Britain Is Reeling" in Exactly the Way You'd Imagine

Following the attack on Saturday in London Bridge, the New York Times ran a story with a headline that suggested the nation was "reeling" following this and the other recent attacks in Manchester and Westminster. Unsurprisingly, Brits were quick to respond on twitter with typically dry wit, questioning the use of such a strong word.


The hashtag #ThingsThatLeaveBritainReeling quickly began to trend, with people sharing their own ideas of the kind of things that would really leave Brits reeling. They include the weather, tea, and manners, but none of them involve letting the actions of a few extremists leave a lasting mark on such a strong, resilient city. Here are just a few of the best contributions.
