GOOGLING yourself can be a dangerous thing and judging by what Europeans ask the internet about Britain post-Brexit, it’s probably best to look away.

A study by Search Laboratory looked at Google’s auto-fill suggestions to find out what our European neighbours want to know about Britons – and it’s far from complimentary.
The top search in Germany is: “Why are the British so stupid?”, while the supposedly friendly, laid back Dutch wondered why were “so ugly”.
The Italians wanted to know why the British were “so dirty” while Spain’s main search was a simple statement of dubious fact: “The English are strange.”
Meanwhile, Portugal – yes the home of Cristiano Ronaldo – wanted to know why the English were “cry babies”
Given the bitter divorce Britain is currently experiencing following the Brexit vote, none of this should come as a surprise.
And it seems the feeling’s mutual, anyway.
Top searches in the UK ask why German’s stare and the Spanish have a lisp.
