My initial reaction upon reading your post was to reply in a very aggressive manner.
Fortunately, I am beginning to control my natural instincts and will politely point out that we Brits have a very long and proud history which is
strewn with countless tales of bravery and derring-do.
Unlike some of our European cousins we have never backed down from a fight or flown the White Flag at the first sign of things getting difficult.
We are indeed an island race and are a race of fighters and warriors, unfortunately this is a natural trait that the PC brigade are trying to deny and
knock out of us.
As stated in previous posts, it would be a courageous act indeed to call us Brits wimps.
Getting back on thread, we Brits are neither stupid.
How could any nation that spawned the Industrial Revolution and has contributed so much to human development, especially when considering the
relatively small population be considered so?
Unfortunately, it seems that there is a concerted effort to dumb down the majority population and people seem to accept mediocrity at every level.
Something has to be done to stop the steady decline into this unhealthy malaise before it is too late.
