    I was reading that thinking 'this is like something Theodore Dalyrymple would write'. I check the link, lo! and behold, I was right.

    I think one need only look to the riots of last Summer to see that much of what he says is accurate.

      I think the behaviour of Bankers , Politicians and Police have kind of given people the feeling that they can do what they like. Manners are at an all time low imo.

        Some of it rings true. I'm convinced there's been a coarsening of society in many respects. The levels of public drunkeness and anti-social behaviour have risen I'm sure. On the other hand there's more tolerance in other respects - less racism (I think) and poofery is much more widely accepted (again, I think).

            A demotic egalitariansim (sic)

            The high point of demotic egalitarianism - the fifties up to the wave of bourgeois post Marxism a decade later, is pretty much synonymous with Anglo good manners.

            The recoarsening (historically - at least according to the quill-wielding arm of the ruling classes - we've been notoriously violent, drunken and loutish) of British manners is correlated with the reassertion of a striated caste society and the tactical championing of an sub-political underclass in the (invariably reactionary) name of liberalism.

              It all depends on your 'class'. Middle class people plod on id say as before. The 'chavs' certainly can be aggressive and intimidating.

              I remeber a couple of years ago in Hull, my hometown, withdrawing some money from a cash machine. Some dickhead came up behind me and said 'give us a fiver mate'. He was trying to intimidate me to give him money. It was basically a mugging, but for not much money.

              I was ready for violence and told him to '**************** off'. He now looked doubtful so I carried on, 'Get your own money out' I said. He stared at me and said 'your a copper arnt you'? to which I replied 'maybe'.

              He then walked off. If there had been two or more of them, which there usually are, I would have been in trouble.

              The sad thing is that these cowardly dickheads are everywhere.

                  It was always thus. The Victorian myth of Gentlepersons and cheery working class raggamuffins was always a Dickensian fantasy.

                    I don't think the Victorians had any illusions about working class ragamuffins, even Dickens.

                          More the whole atmosphere of geniality and working class subservience that the writer in the OP seems surprised to find doesn't represent Britain in the 21st century.

                            I think what pmc means is that Dickens liked muffins.
