I'm only 1/4 English genetically, but have lived here for most of my life. I'm proud of the nation when it acquits itself well - but it doesn't do so often enough. We seem to be pretty good at not panicking and flapping about when the shit really hits the fan (bombs and the like), but we're pretty shit when it comes to panicking about practically nothing (snow, foxes, etc). We're still pretty racist, we keep voting in essentially the same arseholes over and over again, we care too much about the self and not enough about the broader society and the class war stuff is ongoing and pretty vile.|
So on the whole - no.
-- boobs do nothing for me, I want moustaches and chest hair.
