Ha Ha! I’m glad you posted this Ian, I’d thought back to this very Carlin piece when ‘pride’ was mentioned in reference to nationality. Whenever I’m asked if I am ‘proud to be British’, I have no easy answer to give. These are old and outdated modes of thought, and to be honest anytime I see anyone waving a Union Jack it makes me either uncomfortable, or bemused. Further, citing pride in relation to Thatcher… We are talking about the person who more than any other in British history helped erode that sense of pride as she helped reinforce the consumerist culture that was funneling the nations wealth upward.
