Twitter cuts (#50)

The consistency here is surely far more striking than the disparity.

(FWIW I’m more sympathetic to the EU stereotype than the indigenous one.)

    I think G.K. Chesterton had an old aphorism about ‘open-minded’ people. Something about brains falling out?

    “Patriotic” from a foreigner means “brags annoyingly about how awesome their shitty country is”.

    I have no idea in what manner the Brits consider themselves “patriotic”.

    There’s a good proportion of young urban Brits that now actually believe Britishness amounts to ‘Docta Who and an’ fish an’ chips on Broighton Beach.’

    (i) Nobody talks like that, ever
    (ii) You could have been saying exactly the same thing in the 70s.

    ((iii) Britishness, I think, has always been taken with a pinch of salt – to the credit of those with the chips.)

    I didn’t question the words, but thanks (and yes, Britishness is no longer as knowing as it used to be).

    I’m on the phone at work daily with the Brits, Scots and all the corners of the Commonwealth.

    Work. So it’s business.

    The modest and reserved pride is all there underneath still, and frankly the useful productive Commonwealth natives have great respect for the mother country. As do many Americans.

    It’s all there under the Progressive veneer still, waiting it’s time. Just as The Russian was waiting for his time.

    Just as we may pray the German is waiting his time.

    The American you know now sees his time and is rushing for not the Exit – but the Commanding Heights of Our Own City.

    As are some of the French, as did the Poles and Hungarians already.

    I realize that this is where the depressed go for vindication but I have some good bad news – the Sun will always rise. Sorry if this confuses you.

    And yes the sexiness is underneath waiting too.

    Yes – just man up and you’re all gonna get laid.

    A lot.
