Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French

Submitted by H Davies (United Kingdom), Jul 15, 2005 at 08:54

Some thoughts on some of the comments....

If French culture and language is so strong, then why does it need laws to protect it. Culture and language need to evolve to grow, therefore they need constantly adopt and assimilate new ideas.

People cannot usually identify what is British culture because so much of the world has adopted it, it just seems normal: The games people play, base ball, football, etc - Industrialised society, mettled roads, town planning, police, fire brigade, sociology, parliamentary democracy, television, the clothes people wear etc. etc. The world wide web - am I typing English into this comments box, or what?

Do you presume to think that the British don't know how to play terrorists - MI5 have more experience handling terrorism than practicaly any other industrialised nation.

The state of frances ex-imperial colonies are a testimony to their expert handling of other cultures!!
