Ten Reasons why the British* are the Living Dead of Europe:

1. they live in a bubble of obsession with the two World Wars

2. they are in love with their grotesque ideas of Germany and Germans (and keep publishing books about Hitler, Nazism and the Third Reich - but not about Mussolini, Stalin, Franco etc.)

3. they hate the European Union because it was the post-war peace-child of Germany, Benelux and France, founded - without England's permission - to guarantee no more wars in Europe

4. they are still in the mind-set of the Hundred Years War and the Napoleonic Wars
against France, wallowing in a myth of an 'Island Race', though they are of Franco-Germanic origin with a touch of Celt even less than the Irish and rather less than the French.

5. they refuse to believe that their genocidal empire was evil in any way

6. they share a language with the USA and, since the withering of its empire, are always trying desperately to share America's power

7. they do not know how to enjoy themselves pleasantly abroad

8. together with the Irish, they have become the most discourteous, most off-hand, unwelcoming and peremptory people in the Northern Hemisphere

9. they regard all other languages and literatures as inferior

10. they think that morality resides in lucrative hypocrisy, which is why the French have for long described them as 'perfidious'.

*They invented the weasel-word 'British' along with the pompous 'United Kingdom',
and, not suprisingly, have an Identity Problem nearly as great as that of the Northern Irish.
