It's a fairly common phrase. The first time I heard it widely referenced in pop culture wasn't after 'Hot Fuzz', but rather a couple of years earlier when Maxwell started using it during arguments in Big Brother. It became somewhat of a catchphrase along with Saskia's "at the end of the day it's dog eat dog, end of".

I think it's largely a London/Essex thing.

Or do you mean specifically the blowing a raspberry and flicking the Vs thing? I think that's relatively widespread too, but I can't think of an instance where they've been brought together on screen before. It takes a work of art like la Fuzz to bring such a powerful statement and striking image together.

I'd guess in the comic they're specifically referencing Hot Fuzz, but I'd consider both the comment and gesture to be quintessentially English.

Well, I know 'jog on' is a phrase, although I only know one person who ever says it. But blowing a rasberry a flicking a V? Never really got that as a thing that people do, unless they're maybe 10 or something, although nowadays they'd probably throw a rock at you or knife you instead. And that combined with Jog on, I didn't think of as being anything anyone really does, on screen or off, it was just a comedy I've got nothing better to say kind of thing. As for either being quintessentially english, I wouldn't have said so.
