Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The tragic irony is that the UK is pretty good at a number of things, including science, engineering, the arts, sport, law, and entertainment. Not all of this is because English has favoured language status around the world - originally because of the Empire, now because of the US.

But we've never shaken off the perception of post-imperial mediocrity. And we've been electing the politicians to prove it.

Look, we tried to tell you guys not to boil steak. ;)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
