Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem is that the British are concerned about their self-defined sense of mediocrity. I attribute this to the unresolved class problem. Post WW II all of the really good things about the UK came from others than the old elite. Class influence kept Britons from taking justifiable pride in their own accomplishments. Especially the Welfare State. Class remains the poison at the heart of British society.
