[Ed. – How far behind them are we, really — at least in terms of our “official” culture?]
Patriotic Brits are increasingly fearful of showing their national pride in public for fear of abuse and ridicule, a study has found.
Patriotism is falling, with younger generations considering patriotism less important than ever before, many of those surveyed believe, with 72 per cent saying Brits are less patriotic than ever.
Of the 2,000 adults questioned, 79 per cent said they considered themselves patriotic in some way and almost 90 per cent agreed they are proud of where they were born.
However, 22 per cent feared they would be made to feel ashamed of their patriotic views if they displayed or aired them in public. Just 20 per cent felt they could fully display true feelings of their national pride during large events, when patriotic displays are encouraged.
