A nation without self-respect or honour

Dalrymple writes:

There are few human types less attractive than failed materialists, which is what the British are. They consume without discrimination what they have not earned: which is why many of them are so grotesquely fat as well as so deeply indebted.

There is, he says,

scarcely any kind of debt or deficit to which Britain has not resorted in order to continue (for a time) on its vulgar and degraded way. A nation that behaves thus is without honour or self-respect, collective or individual.
