Агрессивный британский патриотизм, синоним французского шовинизма, ура-патриотизм. Это производное от слова Jingo, впервые появившееся в песне, которую пели во время Русско-турецкой войны 1877—78 гг.

We don't want to fight, but, by Jingo, if we do, We've got the ships, we've got the men, and got the money too. We've fought the Bear before, and while we're Britons true, The Russians shall not have Constantinople. — Мы не хотим драться, но, если нужно, у нас есть и корабли, и солдаты, и деньги. Мы и раньше сражались с Медведем, и до тех пор, пока мы будем истинными британцами, русские не возьмут Константинополь

. Антирусские страсти разгорались, и Британский средиземноморский флот был послан в Константинополь для поддержки турок. Русофобов назвали Jingoes. Jingo — эвфемизм для Jesus (Иисус). Прилагательное — jingoistic.
