Anti-British sentiment is prejudice, fear or hatred against the British Government, the culture or the people of the United Kingdom, or its Overseas Territories.


Argentina

Sign in Ushuaia, Argentina some 700km from the Falkland Islands: "Mooring by English pirates's ships is prohibited".

Anti-British feeling in Argentina originates mainly from two causes.

The first and older cause is the presence and continued intervention of British capital and companies together with their disproportional political influence. This political influence is associated with the local oligarchy and its economic model based on the primary sector and commodities.[2] . In turn, this lead to controversial actions by successive Argentine governments such as the Roca–Runciman Treaty and the Treaty of Madrid (1989).[3][4]

The second one is the Falkland Islands sovereignty dispute and the Falklands War in 1982 between Argentina and the United Kingdom. Due to this, anti-British and anti-NATO protests and acts of vandalism do erupt.[5][6]
