Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French

Submitted by Michael (United Kingdom), Jul 12, 2005 at 18:37

An interesting article, but (as a Brit) I feel it falls apart in the last paragraph; the comments on fox hunting and multiculturalism detracted from the article for me. The body of the article was only slightly right-of-centre, but the final paragraph made it a lot more so, and the partisan light this made me see it in only detracted from the article.

To draw an analogy, it was like a learned article on American foreign policy ending with "Also, they endorse the murder of unborn babies".

Other than that, nice article.
