A view of the UK from a Dutchman

The best books about countries are usually written by people who did not grow up in the country. Growing up outside the goldfish bowl, they can cut through the assumptions and myths that are absorbed by people growing up in that country. The best diagnosis of many of the ills of the USA, “A Culture Of Complaint”, was written by an Australian.
This article about the UK, written by a Dutchman who lived in the UK for 6 years with his family, lays bare a lot of the shitty behavior and appalling attitudes that currently bedevil a lot of English people.
