Hmmmm, interesting. I do agree with surreyboy in part... I think that the government has too much power in the UK.
Absolute power corrupts.
The concensus of opinion appears to be that they are.
The French FINALLY realise that the rest of the world views them as arrogant | the Daily Mail
Some disagree, in 'Comments' I found:Now I certainly didn't say that and I'm not sure I completely agree with Surreyboy.Yeah maybe they are. But at least they are not spineless like the majority of my British countrymen. If the French Govt tried some of the stunts our Govt gets away with routinely the French would go out and riot and give their Govt a reality check. Good luck to them.

I agree with Surreyboy.
Mainly because apart from being dangerous control freaks, our govt taken incompetency to a new level
Yesturday, I cudn't spel Enginear...

I wouldn't necessarily say the British were spineless but I do think they can be very complacent about things. I've often thought that the people here aren't very interested in things which don't directly affect them, but then maybe that's the same everywhere. Even when things do affect people directly many just shrug and say they can't do anything about it. I'm not very complacent myself so that attitude does sometimes annoy me.
What a hoot!
I hate the french

They've got bloody good roads, I will give them that. I love driving in France.
It feels strangely erotic driving the wrong way round am island.
Well I've never met an arrogant French person. Yes, they're proud of their country and the language, but that doesn't make them arrogant - it makes them proud to be French.
