A filthy, degraded country

England, Dalrymple points out to an interviewer, is a corrupt country. Not in the way that, for instance, Italy is corrupt, but morally and intellectually corrupt, which is worse.

  • The educational system has been ruined
  • There are large social problems (of which public drunkenness is an example)
  • The country is the dirtiest in Europe — Britishers routinely fling rubbish out of car windows to pollute the beautiful countryside, for instance

There has been a cultural revolution in the country, making it quite the opposite of what it once was.
