Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not just the communication strategy I'm afraid. Sometimes it seems to me as Britons quite like playing the odd one out (and enjoy the right to a critical look on the others) as well as the feeling of safety for not being dissolved in the half-billion voice cacophony.
Continental Europe must understand this.
France's 'exception' is another name for the same, in a way.

Take for instance the issue of the sterling. The french franc wasn't wept for too much, nor was the deutsche mark, while the sterling is a mark of britishness even more than London's bobbies, big ben or doubledeckers.
