I agree... The Brits are garbage

Reader comment on item: Londonistan Follies

Submitted by Danny (United Kingdom), Dec 19, 2012 at 07:35

I consider myself Scottish, rather than British, such is my shame in Britishness. They do stifle innovation. The Brits are scared to take a leap of faith of any sort, they are the most cliquey, snobbish, insecure band of people. I couldn't in all honesty compare them to any other nation or people's, as I don't know any others that well. But it would be a crying shame if I were to discover that the Brits WERE the superior beings they always claim to be, so shit are they that the rest of the world must be in a dismal, dire abyss were that to be true. Nope. Education levels are rotten. Politicians have no foresight. In fact, politicians have no initiative. Their token response to ALL of the major corruptions and scandals that have been unveiled - "we need an inquiry". Inquiry, inquiry, inquiry. The Military? Oof! If you could read any officer reports, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were reading of an otherworldly superbeing. If you met and worked with them, however, you would discover that they were very safe, curmudgeonly, extremely short-sighted careerists. It's a sham. The UK is a sham. I hope Scotland succeeds in tearing it apart.
