The degeneracy and paranoid egotism of the young people of Britain

Fuck off!

Dalrymple notes that young Englishmen (the term, with its innocent Jerome K. Jerome Edwardian flavour, has become sadly comic)

take the mildest unfavourable comment on their conduct as a vicious assault, and become aggressive….Freedom…is…a matter of doing what they want, without anyone – customers, employers, whoever it might be – telling them otherwise.

Young Britons, in their delinquency and degradation, have become incapable of recognising that

different ways of speaking and modes of address are appropriate to different situations. Their social outlook is…crude; any difference in levels of formality would represent…at best hypocrisy and at worst…oppressive inequality….The distinction between friendliness and overfamiliarity is lost, rendering…interaction shallow and vulgar. Here is a world of no degrees and…absence of refinement.

The result for people attempting to run a service-oriented company — or practically any other business, small or large — is this: such companies just

will not employ young Britons,

however loud the exhortations of corrupt politicians hoping to subcontract to struggling, honest businesses their wrong-headed and repulsive work of social engineering.

Better a single Romanian, Ghanaian, Colombian, Bangladeshi or Vietnamese employee — of whatever age, but the older the better — than a thousand young Britons.
